The distance number was hidden by a black box. - Fixed visual issue with 2 decals: "Mossy dirt 1" and "Leaking rust 2". - Export improvement: export only LOD 0 in the video. - 30+ other minimal improvements and fixes.
About Twinmotion. Originally created by French arch viz studio KA-RA, Twinmotion is now developed in partnership with Artlantis creator Abvent. Intended as an easy way for architectural professionals to create photorealistic visualisations of buildings, the software imports models in a standard range of 3D file formats, including FBX, DWG and DAE. Users can create background environments from a library of stock models and textures, and assign lights. Atmospheric properties - including clouds, rain and snow, and ambient lighting based on geographical location and time of day - can be adjusted via slider-based controls. There are also brush-based systems for editing topography or adding animatiable vegetation to a scene, and a Bezier-based system for pathing animated crowds or traffic. The software also includes a basic camera editor and a set of standard post-process effects.
