Dear Lumion user,

Lumion Service Pack 2 Build 8 is now available for download in the Customer Area.
Download and unpack the .ZIP file in a temporary directory, and run the setup file.

You can keep older versions of Lumion installed without problems.

We recommend that you create a backup of your Library and Scene files before using the new build (they are located in the Documents/Lumion/Scenes & Library folders).

About Service Pack 2 Build 8

This is a maintenance release which includes a number of bug fixes and a couple of new features:

  • If you turn on Settings -> "Show Frames per Second", you can now see the position of objects that you are moving in the upper right corner.
  • The world origin (0,0,0) is now displayed as red/green/blue lines when Settings -> "Show Frames per Second" is turned on.

The attached "ChangeList.txt" contains the full list of changes and bug fixes.

All the best,

The Lumion Team

Wow, too very important, new features!!!

(Also, I must be lucky to have seen among one of the first as it is downloading at 1.1-1.2 Mb/s now but well timed for the week-end!)

We also introduced Torrent downloading. Faster downloads when there is a run on new releases!

The biggest benefit for people with a slow or instable connection is that torrent clients use a verification mechanism to make sure the download is ok. Another benefit is that the file is downloaded in multiple parts simultaneiously so your transfer speed is better.

We seed the file from our server using http so even if you are the only one using a torrent client and no others can connect to your computer it's still possible to get a 1MB/s tranfer rate.

No, not yet. We usually release Lumion Free a little later.

Now a (really) snowy terrain (with additional snow patches maybe "dropped" on each non-vertical surface) would indeed be very cool.

I do not expect it however.
