Realistic Environments, Real Beauty, Rendered Faster than ever
When materials feel real, designs become lively experiences in the mind. Just seeing smooth hardwood floors can trigger memories of sliding across the living room in your socks. Soft gravel paths can bring up the sounds of small pebbles and sticks crunching underfoot. Coarse brick textures take you back to the stately houses you’d pass on your way home from school.
Vivid materials can tell a vivid story about your design, and in Lumion 10.3, you can now make materials feel real with the new displacement map import feature.
In this Lumion 10.3 render, a displacement map was imported and added to a rock material.
By importing your own displacement maps, you can give any material a natural and realistic appearance that makes it look as if you could reach out and touch it. Simply create or download your own displacement map (from wherever you prefer to get your materials), and, in an instant, you can enhance the texture and detail of your project’s materials to show exactly how they will feel.
