New in Lumion 7
Recognising that not all buildings need to be pristine or perfect, Lumion 7 easily transforms sterile walls and statues into realistic living surfaces with foliage, imperfections, and natural weathering. These new features remove the coldness of computer-generated imagery by seeking out edges, roughness, and other properties of natural materials to make them look like theyâ€™ve been around a while.
Cover materials with leaves or add weathering, aging and transparency. Add light strips or area lighting, transform a wall into thousands of leaves or have ivy creeping from the ground up, all with the click of a button. Even professional visualization artists would have a hard time creating these features, which in Lumion 7 are now simple tasks.

Lumion is visualization software for architects. It fits perfectly into your existing workflow and allows you to quickly turn your 3D CAD designs into videos, images and online 360 presentations. You can breathe life into your design by adding environment, materials, lighting, objects, foliage and compelling effects. Lumion is easy to master and easy to use, so creating impressive visualizations is no longer exclusively for 3D experts.
Lumion allows you to spend more time improving your designs and interacting with your clients, and less time preparing and waiting for renders. Seamless interoperability with virtually any CAD package caters for fast design iterations and model changes. Ultra fast rendering allows you to quickly show your designs to your customers.
How it works
Importing your models
File import technology you can rely on
Even the most complex 3D models from your CAD software of choice can be imported with ease. For example from Trimble Sketchup, AutoCAD, Revit Architecture, 3DS Max and many other 3D modeling packages.
A dedicated update function makes it a breeze to (re-)load models that were updated in your CAD software.
Supported import formats:
3D models: DAE, FBX, MAX, 3DS, OBJ, DWG, DXF
Images: TGA, DDS, PSD, JPG, BMP, HDR and PNG images
Lightmaps from AutoDesk 3DS Max
Animated models from AutoDesk 3DS Max via FBX format (Move/Rotate/Scale)
COLLADA exporter plugin for Revit
Build your own environment
Architectural visualization comes alive
The scene creation tools in Lumion take full advantage of a GPU-based 3D interface which lets you see changes in real-time. The 3D rendering performance is highly optimized so that you can import 3D models with millions of polygons with ease. Terrain creation is straightforward with the 28 built-in landscape presets, 6 water types and a customizable ocean. Daylight, sun, sky and clouds are easily adjustable and can be animated for sun studies.
Easily enhance your models with great looking materials
Thanks to the huge material library of 3D models in Lumion it takes just moments to really make your design shine. There are 509 built-in high-quality materials such as wooden floors and brick walls as well as 9 custom material types.
Rich Content Library
3D objects and moving 3D animations
Bringing your visualization to life is child's play with the hundreds of entourage models in the model library. For example trees that sway in the wind, moving cars, animated people, buildings, street furniture and much more. Lumion Pro ships with a whopping 1826 models including 459 trees, plants and other nature items as well as 82 Special FX objects.
Video and image output
Architectural visualization in HD
Lumion renders stunning images in seconds rather than hours. And high quality HD videos in hours rather than weeks.
The built-in video editor in Lumion makes great film directors out of anyone. Just take a few snapshots and Lumion turns them into professional-looking camera motions. Add overlay images, filters or special effects and you're ready to render a video that you can watch on any PC or Mac. Or upload it straight to YouTube, so your client can see how awesome your design is.
