Explore how this 3D interior animation render was made

Making videos in Lumion can be challenging. In this post, we’ll open up the hood and see what’s beneath this 3D animation of a Scandinavian living room.

Interiors are one of the most personal forms of architecture, and for good reason too. These are the spaces where people spend most of their time, and it makes sense that the design of the interior is reflective of the character and lifestyle of the inhabitant. 

When preparing to meet with a client over a 3D interior design, architects and designers can use animations to capture the space’s personality in a very intimate, dynamic manner.

The Power of Lumion for Small Landscape Architecture and Design Firms

Owner of DuChene Design Solutions, landscape designer and entrepreneur Patrick DuChene describes how he uses Lumion’s fast 3D rendering to captivate audiences and thrill clients with compelling visualizations.

DuChene Design Solutions created this powerful, animated tour of what’s possible when rendering a small backyard space.

About a year ago, Patrick DuChene was attending the NALP National Collegiate Landscape Competition when he was asked to help prepare a 3D model and renders for a presentation.

And he had less than 12 hours to do everything.

In architectural 3D rendering, context can be king.

Sure, clients want to see the building before it’s built, but some clients also want to see the building in the context of its immediate neighborhood. Others want to know what the real view from the building is like.
