Yep, you are all invited... Truls will probably make the announcement here soon, but go ahead visit the blog post and forum thread and get your ideas running.

This will be very intresting ;)

I'm definitly in. Took a look at the models yesterday (nneds a good amount of fix ups beause of inverted faces and z-fighting) and its a fine piece of architecture with a challenge to get a great presentation out of it. I think custom content and materials is king this time. :)

Is this in any way as the second Lumion Competition?
Or we can wait another initiative with free theme for the year-end as happened in 2011?
Good idea by the way, also like Mies, but I´m sorry that, have of comparison all the renderings that have been made with Maxwell. I don´t know if this contrast will benefit much to Lumion.
This is like when you make a render that looks great and then the architect sends a shot of the finished work taken by professional photographer and you realize that yours was just a cartoon very unrealistic. :D

You could choose a theme which is not realistic at all. So it would not suffer in a direct compairson with Maxwell.
I personally dont care about the previous Maxwell contest (I care in terms the great ideas and work done there of course), because Maxwell and Lumion are just two different tools. :)

It is not, so do not mistake it.

It is hosted and arranged from A-Z by RonenBekerman.com challenge nr 4 "The Museum".

And its video/animation rendering that counts towards the end. Comparing still images vs Vray and Maxwell cant be done in 2.5. But render a spectacular animation, that you can do the Lumion way in the time frame given, probably you can even make 10 entries in the time frame :p

Hope to see your work in the competition :D

That is the right approach!

It is true I set these up on rather opposite sides. Maxwell Render being on the flank of the usual rendering stream in any case with its unbiased approach and there for long render times vs. VRay for example.

But Lumion is a different animal all together!

Render times do not play a role here, and we have motion to think about too this time with much more creative freedom and time to explore.

I think you can all let Lumion SHINE on this one ;)
