Arch-Viz tutorial by Yones Bana from Vivid Visual Studio.

Hi. I am Yones Bana, I am working as an Arch-Viz tutor and co-Founder of Vivid Visual Studio. In this tutorial, I want to show the speed and quality of Lumion 10. For this reason, I used one of the old scenes of Ramon Zancaro to remember him. yes, this is a bedroom, which mix wood and light, rustic walls in the best Scandinavian style.




This scene has been prepared in 3ds Max and rendered with V-Ray.



In the first step, we have to prepare the scene for the transfer to Lumion. All models need to have specific material, UVs and other properties, so I suggest to use Lime Exporter tool.

Lime Exporter is a tool that allows users to transfer 3ds max scene to Lumion. It works with Fstorm Render, Corona Render and Vray renderer. You don't need Vray, Corona or Fstorm permanent licenses, it works also with trial versions. It tries to keep the best settings of materials and it also transfers animations from 3ds max to Lumion. A new folder with all maps included in your project will be created and automatically re-linked. As LimeExporter modifies all meshes and all materials in your project, remember to save your work as a new file before using it! After installing this script in Max, you can access it from the LM Exporter menu.




Click on the Selected Object or Whole Scene button for this script.



Now it's Lumion time! Just open an Plain scene in Lumion.



Click on Import new model button and select the FBX file generated by LIM Exporter. 



As you can see, the scene with all models and textures was transferred to Lumion. 



One of the most important things to keep in mind when importing a model to Lumion is a proper control of materials. Be aware that after exporting you will have all textures set, but you will still to manually set Reflectivity, Glossiness, Bump, Weathering and Transparency.



Finally, in the photo section, you can record the angles you want and use desired effects to achieve the desired result.



For example, in the image above, you can see all the effects used in this shot. 



All these steps are very easy and fast and can be performed like a game in Lumion. Just click on render button and select your render size.  



If you want to know the specifications of my computer, you can see it in the image above, which is the result of Lumion's own benchmark. 



A rendering with dimensions of 3840 x 2160 is made in 12 seconds!

And finally, let me tell you that you don't even need to post production your images in other software, almost everything you need can be done in Lumion itself.

Final renders:







Thank you for reading this article. I suggest if you work in Archviz and have no experience working with Lumion, be sure to include it in your plan.
