Hello,

I was testing Lumion 9 in depth to see if can be used in our pipeline for animation. But I notice a huge difference in terms of quality output exporting the movie using "image sequence" in maximum render quality 5 stars from doing a "current shot" still image! with the same render quality!!! Below is a render images to show what I mean we can feel a huge difference in movie the image shadows are all dark!

Render 1 frame in image sequence ( maximun quality output)



Render current shot still image ( maximun quality output)



Why the quality from both has a use difference! why we canĀ“t get the same quality when do the render animation like the quality in the current shot still image?

Hi smereces, please read the article below to see why there is a difference.

Knowledge Base: Why are Movies sometimes darker than Photos?

Let us know if there's anything else we can help with.

"If you are using the Hyperlight Effect, please note that Hyperlight is rendered with a shorter range for bouncing light rays in Movies and Image Sequences than on Photos.

For that reason, Hyperlight in Movies and Image Sequences will appear darker compared to Photos.

This is by design in order to keep render speeds high and noise low in Movies and Image Sequences."

Ok but this restricts the output quality that we can achieve in end for animation, unfortunately! that is the main reason to use lumion is for animation.

Why not the user can choose if what more quality having a final result as the render in the  current shot even if the time increase but that whay can get the same result?
