The first part IMO is not Lumion but SU section cut animation (spiced up with some native SU fog). Look at the Lumion logo: it only appears when he changes to Lumion (after the "blackout" effect).
In fact, even if you cannot import SU cameras to make nice transition effects between SU linework and rendered Lumion, you can take the first frame into SU and make a PhotoMatch scene there. Then add something before and transit to a Lumion scene after. That way it could be even more exciting. (I have tested it and it works)
You'd need an external video editor however. For some reason, such a (seemingly "simple") movie effect as a transition, is not included in Lumion. Otherwise it would be enough to insert a static image before and render it for two seconds or so before the transition.
