Effects

New custom HDRI Skies

Real skies make for more than just a visually pleasing, photorealistic backdrop to your designs. They can alter the natural light and shadows, impact the overall mood, and can even add geographical accuracy.

Improved effects

Improved color correction

Balance the colors in your scene with greater precision with the new histogram, now part of the color correction effect.

You can also use 12 new LUT presets, from golden hour to vintage wash, or load a custom one of your own. These act as color grading presets for image, movie, and panorama modes, enabling you to convey a distinctive mood in your designs.

Animated phasing effect

Animate the different parts of your design with the improved phasing effect.

This now allows you to scroll vertically through the different phasing tracks with a crisper, more intuitive interface.

More to come

Staying up to date is now simple and stress-free. Lumion 2023 includes a brand-new updater tool, which automatically detects any new available features and content and gives you the option to run updates in the background.

As we continue to improve our implementation of ray tracing technology, you can have a look at our development roadmap for more information on what's to come.

Enhanced rendering output

Aspect ratios

Control the composition for your visualizations by rendering directly in your preferred aspect ratio. Choose from a range of formats, including square and vertical aspect ratios, and save time cropping your photos and videos post-render.

Plus, you can now render multiple camera clips in one go.

New camera paths

Create animations faster and easier than ever with new camera paths that give you greater control and smoother camera movements:

  • Follow object - let the camera follow an animated object or character.

  • Dolly shot - move the camera in any straight line by setting the start and end points.

  • Orbit path - create a perfectly smooth camera path by simply setting the camera target, sphere radius, camera height, and start/end point.
