With Lumion 12 Pro, it’s easier than ever to illuminate the atmosphere of your designs and cast their most remarkable elements in their best light. The new volumetric spotlight effect lets you cast a visible beam of light throughout your scene, adding atmosphere and dimension for a beautiful, cinematic ambiance.
You can add volumetric effects to any omni lights across your scene for a gorgeous, atmospheric glow. This is perfect when you want to show subtle rays coming from your fill flights or other non-directional sources of light. Aim for greater realism by easily modifying the volumetric omni light’s color, brightness, falloff, shadows and more.
Give your visualizations a touch of character with 142 new surface decals. In just a click, you’ll transform walls and other surfaces with imperfections and wall art, including watermarks, exposed brick, moss, chalk drawings, paint markings, road markings, potholes and much more.
You can also import your own custom decals. Instantly feature a mural, graffiti or other artwork. Increase realism with subtle markings and changes in color. Incorporate local signage and pavement markings into your projects. The creative possibilities are endless.

The idea behind Lumion is widespread compatibility to ensure that simple and fast architectural visualization is available to every architect and designer, no matter the 3D or CAD modeling software they use. Everything is designed to save you time.
With LiveSync, Lumion’s real-time rendering feature, you can create a live connection between Lumion and the major CAD programs. Even if LiveSync isn’t available for your CAD software, you should still be able to enjoy seamless import, model reimport and compatibility.
Lumion makes it easy to show how your projects will translate into real-life experiences and emotions.
When you order a Lumion Pro license, you can take advantage of all the features on this page and much more.
