Hi,

one of my projects I am currently working on is a swimbath. It looks already nice after my opinion and I have several pools with nice water in it. Now I have one thing, when I "jump into the water", the water effect is gone. How should the water object be build, that it works as underwaterscene when I am in the water. At the moment my model has boxes in the several pools, which are the water and the depth of water.But when I move into th water I can t see the water anymore, only the surrounding objects, like the pool ground and the wall of the pool. That is logic because the faces of the water box are facing outside. How can a underwaterscene be done? Only model the water surface and the rest is done by your software, or how?

I understand your problem. What you can try is to place one of our square water objects on the same hieght or under your own water. Then going under creates the underwater effect. Though what we probably need to do is create a movie effect taht just turns on underwater.

How can import your water square objects into my scene? Did not find them in the object library.

Under landscape you can paint water squares. Click the water icon.

Click: Landscape mode->Water->Place Object then click somewhere to add a water plane or drag to draw a plane.

Is it possible to get the same underwater fog effect with the Ocean feature? Placing a water element underneath the ocean kind of work, but in high seas the water element is showing through the ocean.

I'm trying out Lumion too see if it can be used to visualize huge oil ships as well as subsea structures and oil fields on the seafloor. :)

The underwaterview is not implemented yet but my guess is it will be added in the future...
