I agree Erwin. With out included entourage, it would be too hefty a cost i believe.
The trees and grass are truly a god send for a balance between realism and speed.
it is also obviously optimised to run very smooth and quick. No 3rd party vegetation required.
You do however need a stable internet connection, as licencing is verified on line when you open it.
You do a nice design and have rubbish trees and grass, it just is a negative for me.
Your not selling plants or grass, but sometimes clients don't see that.
It elevates your renders without a doubt, for little effort.
There is just heaps to choose from. Not all entourage objects are the greatest,
but there is so much...still plenty to choose from that satisfies.
Plus it now has built-in HDRI skies for improved realistic lighting.
You can import sketchup models from the 3d warehouse in their native format and it retains
materials which can then be adjusted in lumion to your hearts content.
Big plus as you've just increased your entourage library...for free
**Depends on the quality of the authored sketchup model.
All this while your archicad working files remains lightweight and low poly.
Just as a side note, (not that this is the big selling point), but their online support is second to none.
This company is extremely focused on support. No waiting for hours or days for help.
I apologise if i sound biased, but i guess this indicates my level of satisfaction.
Twinmotion from what i understand has a somewhat of a simliar framework with Unreal Engine.
I've used the demo version about 9 months ago.
Is was a toss up between Lumion and Twinmotion (Abvent) for me. At the time i found the render quality a little higher in Lumion, but this may have changed or may do in the future.
this realtime rendering does make sense, and will only improve with time.
