See the future with Lumion 2024

The new Lumion 2024 marks the beginning of a new era for 3D architectural visualization.

Firstly, in this latest release, the ray tracing effect has been expanded to work seamlessly with 2,200+ nature items, translucent materials, and glass (including tinted glass).
Secondly, the addition of new denoising technologies makes the experience of working within Lumion much smoother and more enjoyable. Gone are the days of navigating a noisy interface and waiting for previews to load.

Lumion 2024 also includes a significant content update including fine-detail nature, high-quality characters, and brand-new parallax interiors. On top of this, the new version brings multiple workflow, UI, and usability enhancements.

Take your clients for a journey in, through and around your model in 360 degrees.

Make your spaces come alive

With Lumion, you can transform any 3D model into an experience others can see and feel.

Easily add context, detail, and atmosphere to your visualizations. With one-touch controls and a diverse content library of materials, objects, characters, and nature items, Lumion gives you all you need to breathe life into your designs.

The best of both worlds

Lumion 2023 represents a complete foundational shift. With a redesigned render engine that blends both rasterization and ray tracing,
you can now achieve greater realism in your renderings with even less effort.
Rendering isn’t just another step in the design process – it’s the moment your vision comes to life. Lumion 2023 was designed to keep you in your creative flow, so
you can visualize the future exactly how you imagine it.

New high-quality materials

Lumion 2023 comes with 98 new materials that you can use to add realism to your buildings’ surfaces or landscape designs. These include wood, stone, brick, plaster, metal, concrete, asphalt, soil, and grass.

On top of these additions, Lumion 2023 now has an improved glass material that lets you fine-tune every last detail of your project’s windows and other glass surfaces. You can now add a custom texture like relief or frostiness and adjust the distortion to your liking. The new glass material is currently not compatible with ray tracing v0.9.

Unique features we know you’ll love

Full PBR material workflow

In Lumion 2023, the quality of existing PBR (physically based rendering) materials is higher than ever. With the brand-new ray tracing effect enabled, the interaction between light and each surface results in ultra-realistic textures. 

Improved Scene Editor

Building your scene is one of the most creative parts of the rendering process. With a redesigned interface, Lumion’s scene editor prioritizes simplicity and ease of use. Arrange and rotate your assets with precision using the new gizmo and instantly align objects with the improved Auto Snap feature.

Aspect Ratios

Control the composition for your visualizations by rendering directly in your preferred aspect ratio. Choose from a range of formats, including square and vertical aspect ratios, and save time cropping your photos and videos post-render.

New Camera Paths

New camera paths

Create animations faster and easier than ever with new camera paths that give you greater control and smoother camera movements

High speed, high quality renders

Work Anywhere With Your Team

FAQ’s

Does Lumion work on Mac?

Maybe, but seriously it isn’t worth the trouble, especially now that the M1 chipset is the norm in Mac machines. The M1 is not supported at all. Even if you have an Intel based CPU the graphics cards in Mac machines are generally not up to par.

Using Lumion on Macs is not officially supported. Act-3D B.V. and CAD International provide no warranties on any of the functionality in Lumion and do not accept any liability claims arising from the use of Lumion on Macs.

We recommend running Lumion on Windows PCs as they can be configured with more powerful hardware than Macs which will make editing and rendering significantly faster.

What's the difference between the Standard and PRO ?

The Pro version has many more features and a 3 x larger library than the Standard version.

See Feature Comparison Here

See Content Library Comparison Here

What’s New in Lumion 2023

What items are in the library?

The library is huge, but most items are only found in the Pro version. The standard version only has about 1/3rd of the content compared with the Pro version. 

See Content Library Here (The darker images are Pro only content)

Does Lumion work with my CAD software?

Lumion supports almost all modelling software such as ARCHLine.XP, Rhino3D, SketchUp, ArchiCAD, Revit, Vectorworks, BricsCAD, ARES, IronCAD, AutoCAD Architecture, IronCAD and many more. If you’re unsure, download the trial and check it out for yourself or ask us and we’ll check your model files for you.

Why is your price less than Lumion in Europe?

To encourage you to support Australian business we have made it a policy to offer the same product at a better price than if you were to purchase from Lumion in Europe – Guaranteed

Also, because we are in Australia and registered for GST, if you are too then you get to claim the GST back saving you a further 10%. You can’t claim it back if you buy from Europe.

What license options are available?

Subscription licenses that run for one year or three years and includes all upgrades.

You can install on more than one computer in your business and use it on any of those machines, but not at the same time.

You can add more users/’seats’ to your initial license to run multiple sessions at the same time. For example if you have 4 seats you can install on 10 machines but run on 4 machines at the same time.

You need to be connected to the internet to run the software as it checks your license online when you start the software, then releases the license when you close the software.

Does Lumion support remote desktop access?

Lumion 9.0 and later versions are supported on some virtual PC/remote desktop platforms. We’ve listed a few third party providers in the link below that offer virtual cloud desktop services.

Important: Not all virtual cloud desktop offerings can run Lumion; many of them do not meet Lumion’s hardware requirements. Always check if the virtual cloud desktop you are purchasing has hardware that matches Lumion’s System Requirements. Read more here

Our free PRO trial vs. the limited trial from Lumion.com

Only our free trial download is unrestricted.

  1. Ours lets you create files that you can later open in the commercial version. Lumion.com trial models can’t be opened later at all wasting all your evaluation modelling time! 
  2. Ours contains all the content. The other has only 15% of the content library. 
  3. Our trial includes Lumion Viewer, MyLumion, OpenStreetMap and Panorama Mode. The Lumion.com one does not!

Our FREE trial is the latest version of the full PRO version without limitations.

What happens to my old license when I upgrade to subscription?

Your perpetual license will remain valid even after you upgrade to a Lumion Subscription and you will retain the same number of seats. You can simply use either the Perpetual or Subscription license but not both at the same time. If you choose to stop subscription you can still continue to use your perpetual license.

Can you supply Lumion outside Australia?

Sorry we can’t. We are the exclusive sole Lumion distributor for Australia and its territories only. For other countries refer to the point of contact for your region.
