Dropping models in scene

Is there a way to have a model imported or even from the Lumion gallery conform to a terrain?

I have tried and failed to drop or position a model to sit on a terrain that is not flat.

This is another fundamental issue that I hope I can overcome, especially with animation, I had a person walking through a hill and not conforming to the terrain before, hopefully this is being addressed or has been and I'm under a rock still.

See here "granted wishes"...

The orientation of all objects (with the exception of Trees/plants) can now be made to adapt to the inclination of the Lumion terrain ([CTRL]-select objects -> Move object button -> Hold down the F key (for Flatten), then left-click on the Rotate Bank or Rotate Pitch gizmos of one of the selected objects. If you hold down [F] while moving selected objects they will also adapt to the inclination of the terrain. You can also use [CTRL] + [F] while moving 1 object to align it with the inclination of the object below it (this only works with 1 object, not with a selection of objects).
