Quote from Revit user:
I was initially blown away by Lumion since as a Revit user, actually being able to instantly see all of my materials (and now lighting) was a Godsend! Another thing is the Revit vegetation and entourage (people, cars, etc.) are not good. The plants and trees are poor. We would use photoshop to add trees and people after the Revit render was complete. Lumion has opened a whole new world to us in the form of animations. I have never actually considered making a Revit walkthrough since I knew how long it would take to get a somewhat decent result.
The Revit to Lumion Collada exporter is to my knowledge the only free Revit third-party exporter. With the exporter, I no longer have to use Max as an intermediate tool. All the complication is removed with Lumion.
As an architecture firm, in the end we need to produce drawings to give to a contractor. We use Revit to produce these drawings. Having a tool like Lumion allows us to use Revit for its intended purpose. Additionally, Lumion allows us to very quickly convey design ideas to clients and has dramatically enhanced our presentations, leading to even more work; a blessing in this economy.
