How to Render a Beautiful Scene: Part 1 - Interior Living Room

Rendering interiors and exteriors isn’t always a linear process. Even with a well-designed, furnished and textured model, you may still face numerous rendering considerations, from the scene’s lighting strategy to its object arrangement and material customization.

In this first edition of our three-part series, “How to Render a Beautiful Scene,” we’re breaking down the rendering process and workflow for a stylish interior living room (below). The process outlined here is not meant to be definitive, but we hope it provides some insight into how you can render more beautiful, and effective, interiors.


Whether through your lighting strategy, an effects stack or customized material settings, making a true-to-life render has countless benefits. And although you may be focusing on showing the function and form of your designs, a beautiful render can affect your audience’s feelings of well-being, mood, comfort and motivation.

How to Speed Up Your Workflow With Lumion LiveSync® for Revit

When modeling in Revit, your project is like a piece of clay that’s as moldable and modifiable as you wish. You can raise the pitch of the roof, or give the exterior walls a little more length. Maybe the living room is too small, or that wall in the kitchen needs to be taken down.

However you want to alter your model, the free Lumion LiveSync plugin enables a high-quality, synchronized connection between Revit and Lumion. This way, you can see Revit changes in a photorealistic setting and gain insight about how your project will look and how its spaces will feel.


In this blog post, you can discover some helpful tips to speed up your workflow while using LiveSync. So, for that steeper roof, taller walls or expanded living room, you can make better, more informed Revit modeling decisions while visualizing your model in all its HD beauty.

3 Tips for Rendering Context for Landscape Architects and Urban Planners

One of the challenges in landscape architecture and urban planning is rendering the project’s context. From planting large amounts of trees to showing the bustle of traffic or people in a city, context creation is often seen as an essential, yet time-consuming task.

So, what’s the secret to complex, perhaps large-scale, exterior renders that look real and feel alive? Hint: it’s not excessive copy-pasting or time-consuming single object placement. Bridging efficiency with the intricacies of exterior settings requires a different approach.


Rendering a complete and beautiful exterior scene shouldn’t be a luxury. We think it should be easy, and accessible. In this post, you’ll find out how techniques such as context downloading with OpenStreetMapMass Placement and Mass Move can help you easily create an effective render packed with accurate and real-looking context.
