Features

Bentley MicroStation Integration

LumenRT 4 contains a fully integrated Bentley MicroStation interface that includes the complete LumenRT Immersive Nature content library. MicroStation users can now create stunning Immersive Nature scenery at the press of a single button using models from the world’s leading AEC infrastructure design system.

IES Point and spot lights

In addition to natural sunlight, LumenRT 4 now includes point lights, spot lights and luminous materials. IES lighting profiles can be assigned to any light. The LumenRT lighting tools create brilliant night-lit scenes with street lighting and window illumination.

Large Scale Scenery Handling

LumenRT 4 contains numerous enhancements for handling large scenes (e.g. greater than 1KM square). In addition, scenes can contain much higher polycount models and larger instance populations while maintaining impressive interactive performance.

Night skies and moonlight

At the press of a button, the LumenRT 4 LiveCube time of day can be flipped from day to night. Night skies are fully moonlit and filled with stars.

LiveCube Animation Editor

Animation paths can now be created directly inside the LumenRT 4 LiveCube. Built for speed and ease of use with a fully graphical interface, animation path creation is incredibly simple yet powerful. The editor also allows you composite external videos and images together for professional looking results.

Autodesk Revit Integration

LumenRT 4 contains an Autodesk Revit plug-in that allows Revit models to be exported directly into LumenRT. A compatible RPC version of the LumenRT Immersive Nature content library is also included.

Import 3D content from all sources

LumenRT allows users to create LiveCubes from many popular 3D file formats including Wavefront (.obj), AutoDesk FBX (.fbx), Autodesk 3DS (.3ds), and Collada (.dae). In addition, Vue users can create LiveCubes directly from Vue scenes or Vue object files.

Moving Vehicles

A matching set of stationary and moving vehicles are now available to add more life and dynamic motion to your scenes.

Enhanced and Expanded Plant Library

The LumenRT Plant Library has been greatly enhanced with the addition of new shrubs and trees and totals 40 different plants. Plants now have a much more life-like appearance and behavior and leverages e-on’s recently announced Plant Factory solution.

LiveCube Settings Menu

All LiveCube scene settings such as lighting, exposure, gamma, blur and depth of field are now fully adjustable providing much more detailed control over the appearance.

 

Light

Physical Simulation of Light

Thanks to e-on software's patented Physical Lighting technologies, LumenRT accurately simulates the way light interacts with volume. LumenRT is the only solution capable of reproducing all the subtleties of direct and indirect lighting in real-time!

Physically Accurate Reflections

LumenRT generates accurate reflections in real-time. Reflections are automatically enabled for any material that contains transparency or translucency such as glass and water.

Adjustable Time of Day

Light and shadow studies can be performed using LumenRT adjustable sun. Sun location is a accurately set using NREL (National Renewable Energy Lab) qualified solar positioning algorithms.

Soft Shadows with Varying Softness

Shadows produced in LumenRT are very realistic with soft edges. Shadows become more blurry as the shadowing object is further away, like in reality.

IES Point and Spot Lights

LumenRT includes point lights and spot lights which are fully adjustable. IES lighting profiles can be assigned to any light.

HDR Rendering and Luminous Materials

LumenRT luminous materials can be applied to give the appearance of light. Luminous materials are useful for things like building windows, fires and tv screens.



Life

People and Animals

Dozens of fully animated characters and animals sitting, standing, walking, and talking will help bring your scenes alive. Characters are arranged individually, in pairs, and small groups.

Moving Vehicles

A matching set of stationary and moving vehicles including cars, trucks, and buses are available to add more life and dynamic feeling to your scenes.



Nature

Breeze Animated Vegetation

Based on e-on’s new Plant Factory technology, fully breeze animated trees and shrubs add a realistic visual context. Choose from dozens of species. Plants are added as low poly models into the scene but are automatically transformed into their high resolution, full-motion counterparts in the LumenRT LiveCube.

Water and Underwater Effects

Water materials with moving waves and caustics are available with a variety of appearances and wave agitations including open seas, lakes, ponds, and pools.

Photo-realistic Skies

Based on the award winning e-on atmosphere technology, LumenRT contains high-resolution sky maps and atmospheric effects that produce stunning levels of realism.

Night Skies and Moonlight

At the press of a button, the LumenRT LiveCube time of day can be flipped from day to night. Night skies are fully moonlit and filled with stars.

System Requirements

 

LumenRT is a 32 & 64 bits application, designed for the Windows® platforms.

A Shader model 4 compliant video board is required (i.e. reasonably modern). The better the video board, the better the experience, especially during playback of the LiveCube. A minimum of 1GB of Video RAM (VRAM) is recommended (Video RAM should not be confused with system RAM. Video RAM resides solely on your video board).

A 64 bit system is highly recommended for authoring LiveCubes (32 bit systems are fine for playback). LumenRT is either CPU or GPU intensive depending on the task being performed. The pre-processing phase is CPU intensive while the navigation/viewing process is GPU intensive.

Performance of the software is directly related to the power of the system running it. LumenRT is optimized to make the best of all the processors/cores on your system. The power of your video board directly impacts the frame-rate during real-time 3D play-back. Pre-processing times are directly related to the power of your system and the complexity of the scenes being processed.

LumenRT 2015 can run as a stand-alone application, or as a plug-in for the following CAD/BIM/GIS systems:

  • MicroStation V8i (SELECTseries 4) or CONNECT Edition
  • ArchiCAD 17/18 (Windows)
  • CityEngine 2012/2013/2014/2015 (Windows only)
  • Revit 2012/2013/2014/2015/2016
  • SketchUp 7/8/2013/2014/2015 (make or Pro versions, Windows )
  • V8i and CONNECT Edition versions of:
    • AECOsim Building Designer
    • Power GEOPAK
    • GEOPAK Civil Engineering Suite
    • Power InRoads
    • InRoads
    • MXROAD
    • OpenPlant
    • SiteOps
