It’s now been five days since Lumion 8 was released, and since then, the reaction from architects, designers and Lumion users around the world has been positively amazing.
We’ve also started seeing numerous images and videos coming out, showing Lumion 8 in action. There’s some truly incredible work by talented artists and architects, and in the spirit of sharing, on Fridays for the next few weeks, we’ll be posting our pick of five recent renders from Lumion users.
Avid forum user Frank from CYCOT GmbH created this bathroom image with a model created in Allplan 2017 and rendered in Lumion 8.
Using a GTX 1070 graphics card, Frank was able to render this image in 35 seconds. No post-processing.

Showing off a country home with seven of the new Styles, forum user Joe LM was able to produce stunningly realistic renders showing this home at different times of the day. For this post, we chose the country home with the interior style.
For the modeling, Joe used SketchUp Pro and his computer hardware settings included:
- Intel Core I7-4930k @ 3.40 GHz 3.70
- ASUS ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080 Memory 8 GDDR5
- Windows 10 Pro 64 bits

Gui Felix created this home exterior, titled “Residence 49,” by modeling in SketchUp and then rendering in Lumion 8.
Using a GTX 1080 graphics card, Gui was able to render a 1920x1080 image in 41 seconds.

The following landscape was rendered in Lumion 8 by architect and filmmaker Ahmed Abdulrahman.
Including a full, lively scene with everything from a kid’s park to a modern-style water feature with overhanging benches, Ahmed said that this shot is “part of a bigger landscape design project in Turkey.”
Ahmed’s computer specs for rendering this image include a GTX 1070, 32 GB of RAM, and an i7 6700HQ 2.6 GHz. Rendering time was about 18 seconds.

While rendering one of his first interiors in Lumion 8, Gui Giovanoni said in the Lumion forum that he was “amazed by the professional look of the resulting images.”
For the interior below, Gui modeled in SketchUp and rendered in Lumion 8. Using a GTX 1070 graphics card, the render time was a little less than a minute. Like all of the renders in this post, there was no post-processing.
