Quick question.  Are there to be two catagories, one for Standard and one for Pro?  Having only standard and only being able to use Lumion, I am at a disadvantage to the Pro users, since I have limited features compared to them, like no sound effects, less special effects and library items, etc.
Just a thought on the judging aspect of this.
Thanks  ;)

I know extraneous programs are not allowed, but I took the liberty to use PS to create this gif as a preview hint of possibly more to come in animation form.

Can we use a 3rd party program to add music at least?

Given the specified length, you should have no problems using the Sound feature to overlay your audio within Lumion.

That was point on my first post.  In Standard version (Non Pro) all effects listed under sounds request the Pro version.  So I cant add sound with out using an outside program (or upgrading Lumion which isn't up to me at this point).

Hi Truls,

I send you a file but didn't get a download mail from wetransfer. I send you a new one rendered with 4.0.2.

Merry Christmas, Mark

This competition sounds great, I have just started using Lumion at work and would love to have a go at this competition.

I have a question.

I currently only have access to the lumion software at work under their licence, therefore does this mean I will need to submit a video under their name? I have full permission from my workplace and their encouragement, which is great! This is why I do not have any software registered to my account. However I am hoping by doing these competitions I can try and win a license and start using the software under my own terms.

Any help in this would be very appreciated.

Thank you

Hi mbaker

If you are working for a company, you can use 1 license key for multiple staff members, as a way to get full access to the forum including the Commercial Users Forum section.

All that you need to do is to ask the person who manages the license keys at your company to go to your Account settings and enter one of the license keys.

Thanks
