Animation pack allows you to import animated contend from Max for example for rigid animations. It also allows you to import vertex animations trough the PointOven format.

We also intend to expand the animation features with things like more key frames and better timing but this is not certain yet.

We will show some pictures here when we have them. We do have the technology ready it is just that we need to change the lumion engine to work with it. There are always some pitfalls there.

Looks good, Lumion-Team!!! Hope, you saw the real sun sometimes in the last weeks. I´m curious like my kids on Easter-Morning for playing around with it.
Welldone!

I hope all those plugin features are not too expensive althought I could understand if they are and I'm a big plugin based tool fan.

Hi everyone;

I want to ask a question to you:
I want to buy this product (699 Euro) now. But the question is when I send you the money what will happen?
You will give me the Lumion now and update it in Spring term later??

Simple: When you buy now you get Lumion 1.0 SP1 and when SP2 is available you will be able to download this version free. Please note that some of the new features will be available as plug-ins so you'll have to buy the plug-in separately. Our plan is to keep plug-in prices low though and make sure they add a lot of functionality and content. We do not want to get a situation where you have to buy millions of small plug-ins.

Looks awesome!

I'm specially intersted in the animations.
Is it possible than to match camera's from 3ds max and lumion?
(Camera position and movings to 3ds Max)

I'm thinking of compositing.
When camera position and settings are the same in both programs you can compositing more complex animations.
When also basic geometry goes from lumion to max, you can match shadows, reflection with the matte/shadow/reflection material. and composite all stuff together.

Its just a idea...

I'm looking forward to the new water!!!!
If the plug-ins are all this effective....millions would be good. :-9

Can you give me a timeframe on the water....I have a few customers with mouths open.
Will it come with 2 and if so, when....or did I miss something?

Cheers!
