Crab Museum Renderings

Hello all,

I am currently working on a really fun project which is a Crab Museum for a city in China.  I cannot disclose too much information about the project or client but thought these were turning out REALLY awesome!!  I started rendering them in my typical still rendering program (SU Podium for Sketchup) but quickly turned to lumion as the renderings were taking 6-8 hours a piece to render.  Thankfully Lumion still renderings have come A LOOOOOOONG way since the beginning and I am now able to provide high quality, higher priced, renderings while taking a fraction of the time.  Anyway, not my design just rendering the space for a competition entry, hopefully my client wins because of the renderings! :)

Ill submit a "Finished Project" thread once I finish, I am still waiting for their comments but thought I would post on here just in case anyone has any good suggestions.

This is mostly lumion I only did a little bit of levels and "glow" in photoshop, Ill follow with a raw render

Thanks  :)   :-D

2) Lumion pro 7.0.1
3) Modeled in Sketchup
4) Setup in lumion maybe 30 minutes to an hour per scene
5) each scene renders in a few seconds still on desktop resolution for now - GeForce GTX 980 ti
6) PC used - Alienware Area 51 platform / 32GB RAM / NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti with 6GB GDDR5 / Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-5960X Overclocked up to 4.0 GHz w/ Turbo Boost.

Very nice job!
How many times did you spend to have such a huge 2D people library?
I tried to have 2D billboard people by importing in lumion a .Skp with only a .png image file set at the right size, but in a Lumion render, billboards are overexposed, not the same result as yours wich is really nice!

Thank you I appreciate that! 

Most of the 2d people are just face me components in skp that I leave in the model.  So before I reload the model in lumion I set my skp camera to the right camera angle that I want to render in lumion, save it, and then when I find the right angle in lumion the people are all facing the camera properly.  The limitation is that I would have to use different people for an animation I think, but I will not be getting paid for that on this one.  So I went this route, it is the most successful I have found for still renderings.  I inserted a few lumion people here and there to fill in the voids (ie in the aerial).  Also I have learned the shadows from the 2d SKP people are not accurate if the sun is coming across them as they are just a flat plane in space, so they dont cast shadows unless the sun is more directly in front or behind the people....   Hope that helps    :-D

Great Job!

I really liked interior view 1 - your extensive use of your 2D SketchUp people really add life to the space! Your clients must be thrilled!!

Well done!

Chuck

Hi Archi & Partners / Bertrand

...I tried to have 2D billboard people by importing in lumion a .Skp with only a .png image file set at the right size, but in a Lumion render, billboards are overexposed, ...

Can you please raise a topic in the General Questions Board so we can follow up on that.

Thanks Chuck!!   :-D :-D     So far they are very happy, but you know, like good architects, they are not completely happy, so there will be a few more rounds of edits I imagine.  But that usually makes for a better image so I will continue to post progress as it happens!    8)
