Explore the top features in Lumion Pro

With Lumion Pro, there is no limit to how you can show your exterior, interior, landscape or urban designs.

Volumetric spotlights

With Lumion 12 Pro, it’s easier than ever to illuminate the atmosphere of your designs and cast their most remarkable elements in their best light. The new volumetric light effect for spotlights lets you cast a visible beam of light throughout your scene, adding atmosphere and dimension for a beautiful, cinematic ambiance.

Volumetric omni lights

You can also give any omni lights across your scene that gorgeous, atmospheric glow of volumetric light. This is perfect when you want to show subtle rays coming from your fill flights or other non-directional sources of light. Aim for greater realism by easily modifying the volumetric omni light’s color, brightness, falloff, shadows and more.

Surface decals

Give your visualizations a touch of character with 142 new surface decals. In just a click, you’ll transform walls and other surfaces with imperfections and wall art, including watermarks, exposed brick, moss, chalk drawings, paint markings, road markings, potholes and much more.

Import custom decals

You can also import your own custom decals. Instantly feature a mural, graffiti or other artwork. Increase realism with subtle markings and changes in color. Incorporate local signage and pavement markings into your projects. The creative possibilities are endless. 

Animated phasing

Show the process behind your design’s development or construction through the power of animation.

Orthographic views

Embed life, color and texture into all of your technical renderings, and make  lively plans, sections, elevations and more.

Volumetric fire

Cast a feeling of coziness and warmth to your interior and exterior renders with volumetric fire objects.

Rain streaks

Make raindrops soothingly glide down glass surfaces, a gripping detail that would otherwise take hours to get right.

OpenStreetMaps (and height and satellite maps)

Add real-world terrain, rivers, farmland, and more in just a click.

Full content library


Tell the story of your design with over 6,900 items and over 1,350 materials in the library.
