WHAT'S NEW IN LUMION 11?
With Lumion 11, rendering is an integrated part of the design process, an activity that emboldens your craft and inspires your vision for the final result.
New Features – Express The Flavour Of Your Designs
At each stage of the design process, the new orthographic view feature in Lumion 11 lets you embed life, colour and texture into all of your technical renderings. Make exciting, lively plans, sections, elevations and isometric views in just a few clicks, and maintain continuity with your other renderings without having to rely on other software.
ANIMATED PHASING (LUMION PRO ONLY)
With the new animated phasing effect, you can show the process behind your project’s development or construction through the power of animation. Apply different transitions, make parts of your building appear and disappear and highlight what makes your building creative and unique.
Breathe The Nuances of Life Into Your Designs
There is something about life you just can’t design in CAD. Maybe it’s the unpredictability. The energy. Beauty. Whatever it is, one thing is for certain — life is full of feeling.
With Lumion, you can render the beauty of life into your work. It’s simple to render the mood of a rainy day. Render lazy Sunday mornings. Render a New York minute or the peace of the countryside.
Rain streaks (Pro only)
In Lumion 11 Pro, the new rain streaks option, as part of the Precipitation effect, captures the peaceful atmosphere of sitting inside and watching the rain. With only a slight movement of the slider, dozens of dynamic, intelligent raindrops move down glass surfaces, a gripping detail that would otherwise take hours to get right.
Volumetric fire (Pro only)
The soft glow of fire tends to draw people together, and in Lumion 11 Pro, you can tap into the warm and welcoming atmosphere of fire with the new volumetric fire object. Simply add the new fire to cast a feeling of coziness and warmth to your interior and exterior renders, creating an uplifting mood that naturally attracts your audience into the space.
Metallic car shader (Pro only)
With the new metallic car shader in Lumion 11 Pro, the cars in your renders take on an impressive realistic quality, making them barely distinguishable from the real thing.
401 new objects (some Lumion Pro only)
Rendering life into your designs means more than visualizing four walls and roof. It means revealing the real-life experiences that people will have when interacting with your design. It means showing how a room’s furniture imparts a certain mood, how trees and nature can communicate an emotion.
There are 401 new objects available in Lumion 11 Pro, including:
- 61 fine-detail nature models
- 177 interior models
- 49 people and animals (some animated)
All of the new objects are HD quality, and the new additions bring the total number of items in the Lumion 11 Pro content library to 6,224.
63 new materials
With 63 new materials in Lumion 11, you can immerse your clients into a sensory experience, igniting memories of touch, smell, sound and sight.
The new high-quality materials in Lumion 11 include:
- 17 wood floors and sidings
- 5 carpets, 5 bricks
- 3 slate panels, 3 sandstone tiles
- 2 asphalts and 2 snow
Many of the materials in Lumion are of the highest quality, and they can be altered via weathering, soft edges (Pro only) and more. With the new additions, the total number of materials in Lumion 11 is 1,292.
Enjoy a simpler rendering workflow
Lumion fits right into your current architecture workflows and practices, from the very first sketches of form and shape to the final creation of your design documentation. Lumion is easy to learn and easy to use, making the process of rendering a satisfying, enjoyable experience.
