Hi

I wonder if it's possible to create axonometric views?
This would be very usefull to illustrate plan functions.

I have tried to use the camera zoom function, but that disables the shadows and general create a bad result.

Hi jorgensen, this is not yet possible.

Your only option is to use a high camera zoom value and a high Shadowmap Range value. As you already found out, the shadows will unfortunately disappear if you move the camera very far away.

The developers are keenly aware of the fact that it isn't possible to create proper axonometric views + elevations and cross sections in Lumion.

Ferry actually carried out tests last week but was discouraged by the initial results.

Anything that relies on "projection" will not function correctly if you try to use an orthogonal camera, so the shadows and the ocean were no longer visible. There were other problems too but I can't remember the details.
