Dear Lumion users,
This is just to let you know that version 5.7.2 of Lumion
and Lumion Pro
has been released:Lumion 5.7.2: Release Notes
Here is a summary of the error fixes/optimisations in this update:
WARNING: If you have already saved a scene in 5.7 which contains clips with the Mass Move effect, all clips apart from clip 1 will unfortunately be removed when loading the scene in 5.7.2.
- Saving a user-submitted scene with hundreds of effects in Movie mode no longer fails to complete.
- Mass Move effect: The framerate no longer drops when adding this effect to a scene with thousands of models.
- Saving and loading scenes with hundreds of effects in Movie or Photo mode is up to 6 times faster. Scene and LS5 file sizes are also reduced significantly. The optimisations will be applied when a scene is saved for the first time in version 5.7.2.
To work around this problem we urge you to delete all Mass Move effects from your scene in 5.7, save the scene, load the scene in Lumion 5.7.2 and reconstruct the Mass Move effects. Also, do not copy/paste/save/load the Mass Move effect itself from a 5.7 scene as this may result in clips going missing when adding the 5.7 effect to later versions of Lumion. Apologies for the inconvenience this may cause.

Lumion 5.3 and 5.7.2 allow users to configure a different combination of effects for all individual photos in Photo
mode. The introduction of this feature in 5.3 means that older projects load with an empty list of effects in Photo
If you want to apply the same set of effects to photos in Lumion 5.7.2, simply save the effects in Photo
mode in Lumion 4.5.1 or Lumion 5.0 and load the effect file in 5.7.2 via the context menu button above the effect stack.[/color]
