Lumion viewer

I've stumbled on many topic that request output .exe file to sent to client. Just have some idea that now we could have workaround for .exe file output because there's Lumion free already ;) .

We can make Lumion portable, with some specialized software, and install on flashdrive with the file and hand to client without any installation.

Edited: Stucki concerns are very reasonable.
Wish Act-3d could make an official viewer or portable version. So client don't have to install software, they just need to download and run it. With some UI/functions disabled, it should already be a viewer version which don't need .exe output (even better, author could set Lumion file permission/password to edit, seem not too hard to implement).

If we could find the easy solution to share works. Maybe oneday we could even have Lumion online model library like Google's 3dwarehouse, where our community could share models and a lot of manufacturer build components and upload to promote their products ;)

Thanks,
Ming

i would prefer the lumion basic/ultimate version with all features but no images or movie rendering.
this would be very good for viewing projects and you dont have to worry about your client doing movies themself sometime ...

I remember that Remko ( maybe, not sure ) tried to use Lumion as a viewer, but the main problem was mainly that was quite large to download and plugins stuff ( trees, effects ) were not applied...

So for me the best solution could be to do a self installer that has a very simple UI that allows you to change the sun position and maybe change the shaders...
Basically you can simply use it to look around...no mesh placing, no import, very few options to tweak

That will be enough for me  ;)

Yes, that and Renderlights, both with exe capability...but I must say that Lumion is far better, even if LumenRT is a nice piece of software....too bad that is Sketchup only...
