The Netherlands, 10th February, 2015-- Lumion makes it fast and simple for Designers, Architects and Construction professionals to breathe life into their 3D designs by visualizing them as high quality videos and still images. The advantages of a simple to use tool in which you can apply changes to your 3D design in real-time, and the incredible ultra fast rendering speed make Lumion a game-changer. Based on GPU technology all you need is a good graphics card. Upload your 3D model and create a 3D video or image.
After the major update of Lumion 5 in November 2014, the Dutch development powerhouse Act-3D launches Lumion5.3 today. The Architectural Visualization Software is now sold in 100 countries worldwide. “We listencarefully to the wishes of Architects, Designers, Construction professionals and BIM experts around the world,” says CEO Ferry Marcellis. “This update reflects their wishes.

Be the first to use the newest technology. Improve yourworklow. Here are some Lumion 5.3 highlights.
Automatic relief for imported images
In Lumion 5.3, a new feature in the material editor automatically creates a relief for imported images. This means, for example, that an imported wood image results in a material containing actual wood grain.
Easier eye level camera
Wlk through your design. Place the camera position at eye height and quickly orientate the camera for a perfect horizontal view angle. This feature makes it extremely simple to create films from the viewpoint of a person as they walk through an architectural design.
Flexible Object Movement
With Lumion 5.3 objects from different categories, such as people, trees and so on can now be simply selected and moved around together within your scene.
Lock movement to an axis
Lumion 5.3 makes it possible to restrict movement to one axis. Saves time in tweaking the placement and alignment of objects.
Content search function
The object library has become so large that it now contains thousands of objects. The new search function helps you quickly find items in the content library.
Render photo set
Instead of rendering each photo one by one you can now render many photos at once.
Individual effect stacks for each photo
This feature makes it possible to choose different effects for each photo. In combination with the new photo-set rendering function, it provides an excellent way to improve your photo rendering workflow efficiency.
Hyperlight® in print resolution
Lighting is crucial in making compelling images. Hyperlight® is a physically-based method of incorporating light reflections into a scene and greatly improves the lighting quality. This proprietary technology was specially developed for Lumion 5. In Lumion 5.3 you can now enable Hyperlight® when rendering images in Print & Poster resolution. Thanks to the new improvement you can now create print resolution images with amazing lighting.
Increased compatibility with 3D modelling software
You can import a 3Dmodel made with Revit, SketchUp, ArchiCAD, Rhino, 3D Studio Max, Allplan. Now there is also improved import possible from NemetcheckVectorworks and Revit LT to Lumion.
Lumion 5.3 is worldwide available from February 10, 2015. Lumion 5 customers get Lumion 5.3 for FREE
