Sky Light

Sky Light is an advanced, daylight simulator for softening and dispersing the scene’s environmental lighting. Used in combination with Soft Shadows and Fine Detail Shadows, it strengthens the real-life interplay of these elements. Watch as the foliage and trees become photorealistic, and discover as people, buildings and landscapes suddenly look like they belong where they are.

Soft and fine shadows

Inject realism into your render by turning on the Soft Shadows and the Fine Detail Shadows as part of the Shadow effect. Instantly, the shadows become softer, the penumbras grow. Hundreds of fine detail shadows are enriched and a realistic sense of depth permeates the image.

Hyperlight® 2 for images and animations

Hyperlight was originally a Lumion 5 technology, but with the improved Hyperlight 2 in Lumion 8, this tool became a power-boost for catapulting your scene’s lighting quality and accuracy. You can also apply the Hyperlight effect when rendering videos, giving your animation a strikingly realistic balance of environmental and artificial lighting.

Weathering

Want to make your building’s materials look weathered or aged? By upgrading to Lumion 8, you can instantly create imperfections, impart authenticity and age materials with a simple click of the mouse.

Remove the look and feel of computer graphics by adding rust to steel, wear and tear on wood, or dirt and moss on stones. The materials will look as if they’ve always been there, adding a depth of authenticity that won’t go unnoticed.

Foliage

With the foliage material option in Lumion 8, you can add creeping ivy (and other climbing plants) along entire surfaces like walls or statues. Or add a simple touch of green on the ground. Whether you need to cover whole walls with one of the nine climbing plant presets, or you’re adding a dash of leafiness to existing materials, you’ll breathe new life into your design.

Edges (Pro Only)

The Edges feature gives your model a more natural and weathered look, one better representing the real qualities of physical homes and buildings. Impart age and realism by smoothening the edges of adjacent faces. Soften the corners of brick, concrete, wood and other materials. A simple slider movement, a more realistic building. Easy. Effective.
