Would be very helpful if VW would start working with LUMION.

 

Sketch up, Archicad and Revit have already a model sync in LUMION - VW should work with them to get one as well.  This would open up a lot of opportunities.

 

Thank you in advance!

How does Lumion compare with Twinmotion?

I haven't tried Twinmotion yet, but it is on my radar too. From what I can tell they are very similar. The biggest differences I am considering Twinmotion over Lumion for are:

  • Twinmotion is available on MacOS
  • Twinmotion supports BIM Motion and VR path rendering while Lumion only supports point based 3d panoramas/VR.

 

There are several YouTube comparison up now to view as well...

Thanks for the links guys.  Lots of pros and cons.  One thing Lumion seems to have going for it from an initial observation is better rendering.  But Twinmotion seems to have better intuitive user interaction and is cheaper to purchase.

What I found out in the meantime is the following:

Twinmotion is possible with Windows and Mac. Lumion only with Windows but on a Mac with Bootcamp as well.

Grafik Card must be even better with Twinmotion compared to Lumion.

Price for Twinmotion is compared to Lumion cheaper, but much less 3D objects and additional charge for e.g. flowting license etc.

Twinmotion uses unreal engine, Lumion has its own engine and therefor independent in further development

...

My personal opinion is that I am very happy with Lumion and it is my first real "intuitiv" program (just watch some youtube tutorials). Would be even better if we get a live sync with Vectorworks.

Nevertheless it depends on your personal needs and your own workstyle...

 

Hope this helps!

Almost makes me want to ditch the Mac OS and go back to the dark side.

@NikF We are looking to add a more direct way of doing this and pull terrain data into Vectorworks! This is definitely a cool video, and it reminded me of a workflow I messed around with a few months back. I will post my workflow shortly!
