Just wanted to thank all the hard work on Version 8 of Lumion. I had the chance to get a demo of the latest software and load up one of the largest models I have worked on. The LS6 file was 1.8 gigs and would cripple Version 6. To my surprise V8 loaded the file in under 5 min vs the 2 hour wait in V6.... That's a fantastic update just by itself. I have had little time to go thru any material changes and I know I am missing a ton of features with the new materials vs what was already mapped out in Lumion 6. These images just keep getting better, great shadows and in the near future looking forward to getting our company to update.

This is a finished design and will be open to the public in March. Model was created 3 years ago in Sketchup. My CPU is a older Dell with a PSU upgrade and a Titan Video card.

Thanks for the great software - its worth every cent.

Hi Chris

Thanks for the submission to Finish Projects, and the feedback.

Was your V6 a version prior to V6.5?  If so then that would explain in part the slower load times, as prior versions worked with DirectX 9 and under a different memory management system.  V6.5 to V8 should be about the same for loading, so although we would like to take the credit, there was no change (at least in V8) that would have affected those times  :-D.

It was the latest 6.5xxx and something defiantly changed.

Hmmm, OK.  Thanks for noting the change.

ps: please don't forget to add your V8 license to your Support Center Account.
