Even though this has been discussed plenty, I think it's good to bring the issue up to see how people are faring and in which direction development is headed. The latter, I guess, depends on the market Act3D is targeting.
For a one-girl/man-show who has a few hours left before being hit by a deadline, multitasking could be a life-saver. Once a model finally looks good, in most scenarios some stills are taken, maybe to be photoshopped where necessary, plans are finished, and layouts are to be made and printed. Now if a video could be rendered in the meantime that would just be great, and probably make a difference with the client. Having or not having a video sometimes constitutes the difference between a decent and a great presentation.
For teams, multitasking is a different story, more in a sense of being able to have multiple people working on the same model. Each could thus contribute a specific sub-set of the design, like green areas, placing stock objects and imported models.
I hope Lumion is going to feature solutions for both user-groups in the future.
Btw devs, are there any plans to offer Lumion functionality on OnLive desktop?
