New LiveSync for SketchUp
Supercharge your SketchUp model by designing it simultaneously in Lumion’s real-time, breathtaking environment. The new Lumion LiveSync for SketchUp immediately sets up a live connection between these two programs. You’ll receive immediate, high-quality feedback in Lumion as you interact with your model in SketchUp, solve design problems or present your work in the context of the real world.
Improved LiveSync for Revit
LiveSync for Revit helps you get into the creative “flow” of design development and provide unique, beautiful presentations. With the improved LiveSync in Lumion 8.3, you can breathe life into the synced model by simultaneously modeling in Revit and dressing it with the textured, high-definition materials in Lumion. And you can ease the design and presentation process by syncing the same viewing angle with the LiveSync camera synchronization.
Real-time materials synchronization
LiveSync in Lumion 8.3 now synchronizes your material assignments in SketchUp or Revit. But don’t rely on the CAD materials for amazing visual quality. You can instantly breathe life into the design by applying any of Lumion’s 1000+ high-definition materials in the Lumion editor. As you continue to develop the design, you can tweak the materials exactly to your liking and then save your material layouts for future rendering.
Live point-of-view synchronization
Rotate the view of your building in SketchUp, the point-of-view rotates in Lumion. Get that perfect viewing angle in Revit, keep the same angle in Lumion. In Lumion 8.3, LiveSync enables live point-of-view synchronization. Turn it on and immediately adopt the Revit or SketchUp camera perspective, making your work easier, faster, and more enjoyable.
Automatic model imports
When establishing the LiveSync connection, Lumion will automatically import your Revit or SketchUp model. Continue working on and modifying your project even after you turn off LiveSync, and easily save the file as an .LS8 for future rendering or development.
