LUMION VERSION v4.5 Update:

Improved:- New Shadow System:

A New Method To Improve Shadow Quality, Range and User Options

The shadow effect now includes an option for three quality levels. This allows you to create ultra sharp shadow edges up to a level where you can see the individual leaves of a tree.

The shadow routines are completely rewritten to extend their range further in the distance while providing excellent sharpness at close ranges.   The new enhancements particularly improve the quality of aerial shots and sun studies.

Merge Scene Objects to Other Scenes - Build Scenes Faster:



Workflow Enhancement:
  
Pro users can now load their .ls4 file into an existing scene. After selecting a file the options is presented to import light, models, imports or any combination of them.
Create Favourites in the Library:

Workflow Enhancement:
  
The content browser allows you to add models to your favourites list so you can quickly find them later. When you have assigned one or more favourites, a new tab will appear listing all your favorite models.
New Load/Save Cpy/Paste Effects:


Workflow Enhancement:

In Photo and Movie modes.
   * Easily transfer effects from one clip to another, or one project to another.
   * Easily transfer a single effect from one clip to another.
Automated Lights:
 

Lights now have an extra setting which makes them turn on automatically at night. They can be randomized so they do not turn on all at once.

With this feature enabled, all you have to do is animate the sun position to create a nice effect for night scenes.
New Character Models And Animations:
Lumion 4.5 Pro includes 24 new character models. The models increase ethnic diversity of the character library and also provide several new animations and poses.

The new models include several business people, people involved in sporting activities, people sunbathing and even some people swimming. With these new models it’s easier than ever to bring your visualizations to life.
