Real-time visualization with Lumion

I have previously posted about the future of real-time visualization tools.  Lumion appears to be developing a bit of a following.  Have you used it?  How did you implement it?

If you haven’t seen what it does before, there is a set of videos at this link:
Revit Landscape – Urban Design: Lumion 3D

Promo video:

If you want to see a project go from Revit to Lumion (also this thread):

A free version for non-commercial use is available from this page.  The free version will apparently be updated to version 2 in January 2012 (only a few days of that month to go…)

The company line:
Lumion® is a real-time 3D visualization tool for architects, urban planners and designers.
It’s perfectly suited for creating videos, still renderings and live demonstrations with a quick turnaround.
Lumion offers excellent graphics in combination with a fast and efficient workflow, saving you time, effort and money.
It is in fact so easy to create awesome still renderings and videos with Lumion® that it almost feels like cheating.

I've downloaded and installed it – and the world editor is exceptional for speed and ease of use, but so farmy efforts to get Revit models imported in has been via the .fbx route – losing my materials as I do so – which is a bit of a pain. I've heard there's a plugin, but that doesn't appear to be readily available for trial – which is a shame since it's that functionality an architectural firm NEED to experiment with before we can consider buying it.
