4. Rhino in the context of the real-world. Model your design in its future environment.
With the Lumion LiveSync for Rhino plug-in, you can view and change your Rhino model in real-time in Lumion.
You will need Lumion 9.0 (or above) and Rhino 6 (or above) to use the LiveSync functionality.
Lumion LiveSync for Rhino
Immediately set up a live, real-time visualization between Rhino and Lumion. Change the Rhino model’s shape and you’ll see these changes taking place, in real-time, in Lumion’s breathtaking, lifelike environment.
As you continue modeling in Rhino, you can simultaneously view your project in Lumion surrounded by an immersive, fully featured landscape (mountains, water, grass). Beautiful materials make the design 'pop', while photo-realistic lighting suddenly heightens your sense of environment, realism and depth.
Real-time materials synchronization
Instantly breathe life into your synced Rhino model by applying any of Lumion’s 1000+ high-definition materials in the Lumion editor. As you continue to develop the design, you can tweak the materials exactly to your liking and then save your material layouts for future rendering.
Live point-of-view synchronization
LiveSync now enables live point-of-view synchronization. Turn it on and immediately adopt the Rhino camera perspective, making your work easier, faster and more enjoyable.
Automatic model imports
When establishing the LiveSync connection, Lumion will automatically import your Rhino model. Continue working on and modifying your project even after you turn off LiveSync, and easily save the file as an .LS Project file for future rendering or development.
