Discover Lumion 2023

See your vision come to life

Rendering isn’t just another step in the design process - it’s the moment your vision comes to life. Lumion 2023 was designed to keep you in your creative flow, so you can visualize the future exactly how you imagine it.

The best of both worlds

Lumion 2023 represents a complete foundational shift. With a redesigned render engine that blends both rasterization and ray tracing, you can now achieve greater realism in your renderings with even less effort.

Introducing ray tracing v0.9

Add realistic light, shadows, and reflections to your renderings at the touch of a button. The new ray tracing effect in Lumion lets you control the number of samples and bounces, giving you more control over the final result. With ray tracing switched on, your renderings will automatically show realistic indirect lighting, non-screen space reflections, contact shadows, and much more.

The scope of the new ray tracing effect will continue to be expanded and new additions will be easily made available thanks to the new software updater included in Lumion 2023. To learn more about how ray tracing works and its current limitations, please check the release notes.

Full PBR material workflow

In Lumion 2023, the quality of existing PBR (physically-based rendering) materials is higher than ever. With the brand-new ray tracing effect enabled, the interaction between light and each surface results in ultra-realistic textures. You can also import your own textures or combine different maps to create the exact look you want.

New high-quality materials

Lumion 2023 comes with 98 new materials that you can use to add realism to your buildings' surfaces or landscape designs. These include wood, stone, brick, plaster, metal, concrete, asphalt, soil, and grass.

On top of these additions, Lumion 2023 now has an improved glass material that lets you fine-tune every last detail of your project’s windows and other glass surfaces. You can now add a custom texture like relief or frostiness and adjust the distortion to your liking. The new glass material is currently not compatible with ray tracing v0.9.


Expanded content library

Help your clients imagine themselves in your design, with Lumion’s extensive library of lifelike people. Set the scene and show the life in any project, by instantly adding your choice of realistic objects and furniture, whether it’s a plant in the corner of a room, the cars passing by a building, or the wooden finish of a chair.

The new additions to the Lumion content library include: fine-detail nature, 3D static characters, cars, vehicles, and furniture items.


Office chairs


Interior objects

51 new assets including office chairs, couches, decorative plant pots, and more


100 new 3D static characters

We’ve put in the work, so you can deliver yours

Build mode

Improved scene editor

Building your scene is one of the most creative parts of the rendering process. It’s the moment you watch your design take shape and decide how it should look and feel.

With a redesigned interface, Lumion's scene editor prioritizes simplicity and ease of use. Arrange and rotate your assets with precision using the new gizmo and instantly align objects with the improved AutoSnap feature.

Lumion's scene editor now features AMD FidelityFX™ Super Resolution 2 (FSR 2) upscaling technology, for a sharper and smoother scene building experience.

Camera editor

New camera paths

Create animations faster and easier than ever with new camera paths that give you greater control and smoother camera movements:

Follow object - let the camera follow an animated object or character.

Dolly shot - move the camera in any straight line by setting the start and end points.

Orbit path - create a perfectly smooth camera path by simply setting the camera target, sphere radius, camera height, and start/end point.


Improved color correction

Balance the colors in your scene with greater precision with the new histogram.


Refined depth of field

Draw attention to a specific part of your scene by placing objects in or out of focus with the improved depth of field effect.

Rendering output

Aspect ratios

Control the composition for your visualizations by rendering directly in your preferred aspect ratio. Choose from a range of formats, including square and vertical aspect ratios, and save time cropping your photos and videos post-render.

More to come

Staying up to date is now simple and stress-free. Lumion 2023 introduces a brand-new updater tool, which automatically detects any new available features and content and gives you the option to run updates in the background. As we continue to improve our implementation of ray tracing technology, we're also working on making our development roadmap more transparent.
