Are you asking how to reload a modified model in Lumion? If so, please search for "reload" in the following threads:

Do you mean soft shadows from interior lights, or soft shadows from the sun? Can you post links to images that show what kind of shadows you mean?

I speak about soft shadows, somethink like this:




And there is a way to separate objects by layers depending of texturing?...  I want to separate glass, stone, wood... depending of the model, or i have to import all the objects separatelly one by one... I need it separately to animate or how lumion works?...

Thanks for the answers... (Sorry my bad English im learning...)

If you're using Lumion 2, use the Shadowmap Range slider in the Weather section to change the resolution of the shadows. The more pixelated they look in Build mode, the blurrier they will be when you render them.

Lumion should already import materials as separate surfaces, but there's very few people here who use Cinema4D, so perhaps this isn't working as it should.

If Cinema4D materials aren't imported as separate surfaces in Lumion, please create a new post in the Importing section of the forum, and upload the Cinema4D file + the exported FBX file, so that Artur, our import/export guru, can take a look.
