See your vision come to life
Rendering isn’t just another step in the design process - it’s the moment your vision comes to life. Lumion 2023 was designed to keep you in your creative flow, so you can visualize the future exactly how you imagine it.
The best of
Lumion 2023 represents a complete foundational shift. With a
redesigned render engine that blends both rasterization and ray tracing, you can now achieve greater realism in your renderings with even less effort.
Introducing ray tracing v0.9
Add realistic light, shadows, and reflections to your renderings at the touch of a button. The new ray tracing effect in Lumion lets you control the number of samples and bounces, giving you more control over the final result. With ray tracing switched on, your renderings will automatically show realistic indirect lighting, non-screen space reflections, contact shadows, and much more.
The scope of the new ray tracing effect will continue to be expanded and new additions will be easily made available thanks to the new software updater included in Lumion 2023. To learn more about how ray tracing works and its current limitations, please check the release notes.
Full PBR material workflow
In Lumion 2023, the quality of existing PBR (physically-based rendering) materials is higher than ever. With the brand-new ray tracing effect enabled, the interaction between light and each surface results in ultra-realistic textures. You can also import your own textures or combine different maps to create the exact look you want.
New high-quality materials
Lumion 2023 comes with 98 new materials that you can use to add realism to your buildings' surfaces or landscape designs. These include wood, stone, brick, plaster, metal, concrete, asphalt, soil, and grass.
On top of these additions, Lumion 2023 now has an improved glass material that lets you fine-tune every last detail of your project’s windows and other glass surfaces. You can now add a custom texture like relief or frostiness and adjust the distortion to your liking. The new glass material is currently not compatible with ray tracing v0.9.
