LUMION 7.3: RELEASE NOTES
Please note that scenes and models saved in 7.3 are not backwards compatible with earlier versions.
IMPORTING & EXPORTING
New Lumion® Plug-In for Revit® 2.0 update with LiveSync technology. This function establishes a live link between Revit and Lumion, so that model & material changes in Revit are transferred to a preview version of the model in Lumion in real-time. Full exports of Revit models now also include textures and colours from more Revit material types than ever before.
Print/Poster image renderings: .JPG format has now been added as an additional option in the 'Save File' dialogue window. This format is now also the default format instead of .BMP format.
