theater mode with effects AND animations ?

Hi Everybody !
When editing a scene in the movie editor I can "explore" my project in theater mode with all effects active (depth of field, god rays...) and this is just COOL !
when editing a clip the window is smaller but i can have BOTH effects and animated characters displaying at the same time on screen...

So my question is: Is there's a way to have best of the two worlds, I mean effect and animation in a fullscreen theater mode ?

Sure, click on the Play button in Movie mode before clicking on the Theatre mode button.

Hi Morten and thanks for the tip and very fast answer as always !
Lumion Team always do a great job and support... congrats again to all of you!

I really want to buy Lumion now with the last improvements but i need to have one serious client command to justify the price of the license. I also wanted to participate to the "we need still images" contest but is it open again and Can I send pictures made with the free version ?

About the tip you gave me it plays the animation in full screen wich is great but what i wanted to do is "navigate" the scene with full effects AND people and trees moving (not nessecerily walking people and running cars). Can I do that please ?

Absolutely :)

Ah, I know exactly what you mean but that's currently not possible.

Here's a thought experiment on how the theatre mode navigation could be improved:

Ah yes, the Wish List section is for license-holders only.

In any case, I know what you mean :)
