Pardon me, but I couldnt find a topic about it. Not sure if its me or the search function that isnt working very well
anyway... lets say I want a red plastic material. So I create a red material at Sketchup and import the model to Lumion.
the red material imported from Sketchup had no reflections or anything, thus it doesnt look like plastic.
so I will edit the material. If I chose CUSTOM MATERIAL - COLOR, then I can chose any color but I cant chose reflections, nor emisiveness nor anything like that.
if I choose STANDART material, the Sketchup material turns WHITE. And I can´t assign a COLOR to it. Only a texture. Thus, for all color materials from Sketchup (to which textures arent assigned, I would need to create a texture with that same color...)
doesnt make much sense. Wouldnt it be more interesting to be able to assign a specific color in the STANDART material inside Lumion? Or to assign different effects to the COLOR material in Lumion?
