Dear All,

I would like to announce that I am currently making good progress on an ebook that I have been working on for sometime, aimed to assist those seeking to make the most of Lumion.  

Up till now, I have kept this a secret,  :D (other than notifying Act-3D) but feel it is the right time to let you know about this.  Note also:  I would very interested to know your wish-list of topics.  I can't promise I can fullfill all, but I will certainly aim to encompass as much as possible.  ;)

I hope to have this finalised in a matter of months.  Still too early to announce the publication date quite yet.

Best regards,

blendman

My wish: Explain basics of Blender animation and importing it to Lumion.
For example:
-Animating a Ferris Wheel (Something like the London Eye)
-Animating an escalator (Very needed for commercial interiors)

Awseome....Can't wait for it.

My suggestion would be hit the basics with a broad brush and aim it for the intemediate users.

We will try to update the current animation system a bit for 2.3 so that it is much easier to work with.

Good effort Blendman, could you let us know the format or authoring system you intend to use and also the cost? Will you do a website too?
Good luck.

The ebook will be available in ePub and PDF formats.  Price has yet to be determined but should be modest. It will be available sometime this Euro summer.  More details be be made later.

Maybe you can make it available on iTunes so I can read it on my iPod while using Lumion on my PC.
