QUESTION
How do you create a walkthrough video at eye level?

ANSWER
Import your model in Lumion and use the Mark as terrain function (even if the model includes buildings). This ensures that the "Set Eye Level at 1.60" function further below will work:

Context Menu -> Click on the imported model object icon -> Extra -> Mark as terrain -> On



In Movie mode, create a new clip and click on the "Set Eye Level at 1.60" button before you add new camera keyframes. This will place the camera 1.60m above the native Lumion terrain or imported models that are marked as terrains:



Please note that if the camera changes height a lot in your clip, you may need to add extra camera keyframes and click on the "Set Eye Level at 1.60" button for each camera keyframe in order to ensure that the camera height stays close to 1.60m at all times.
