Hello everyone!

We have a shiny new update waiting for you!

Go here to download:
http://lumion3d.com/credits/Userboard/Dashboard.aspx

Many issues fixed, some improvements here and there and now the installer works for both 64 and 32 bit systems. Overall stability is improved and we fixed all the issues we could find. Some people had issues with the activation which should also be resolved with this update. We advise everyone to start using this version.

One big change is the removal of the speed effect and begin/end effect. These have been replaced by a speed control inside the camera path editor.

There are many changes all over to improve usability, stability and output quality. We also made some minor changes to the user interface to make Lumion easier to understand.

If you are looking for a 64 bit version then look no further because starting with this version we automatically install the 64 bit version whenever possible.

For full details check the changes.txt file in the installation folder.

-The Lumion Team

Hi Lumion team,

Thanks for the great news about Lumion SP2, build 4. However, I have two questions.
1.Where can I get the detailed .txt document without downloading the entire 2.2Gig file?
2.Is it not possible in future to provide only new increamental changes instead of having
to download the entire programe again?

Regards,

AlickN

Do they appear correctly when you export an image or movie?
The real time engine (I guess also depending on your system) is more "forgiving" with displaying things.

i think it is the lod system of the realtime viewport. stills and movies should be okay.
i have some bushes and trees fading partwise out in the distance too. i think it is intentional, so the framerate stays fluid.
