UI and performance improvements
Any collections of custom materials from previous versions of Lumion can now be converted to the new Lumion 2023 material system.
Saving and loading material sets
For imported models with multiple surfaces, the time required to save and load material sets has been significantly reduced.
New loading material sets window
The load material set window has been reintroduced to Lumion 2023. In this window, you’ll see all the materials in a saved set that can be assigned to surfaces of an imported model. You can also easily disable any surfaces that don't need to be overwritten by a material in the set.
Object property panel
The object property panel in build mode has been revamped for imported models. You’ll now find an information button that shows source models’ locations when hovered over.
Ray tracing improvements
Realistic reflections can help transform a rendering from a beautiful image into an experience you can feel. After all, it’s often the smallest details that have the largest impact.
While there are still limitations to how and where ray tracing can be utilized with these materials, these latest improvements provide much greater flexibility and allow for more creative freedom when rendering a scene.
All customers with an active Lumion Subscription can benefit from the latest release at no additional cost. If you are already using Lumion 2023, you can easily install the latest updates as soon as you open the software and download them in the background.
