By the way Cpercer, how do you know so much about what the development team is thinking and doing?
Don't really know what you're on about here, but if you took a look through the forum, you would see that there is much information to be had. For example, this is a recent post by Truls, the new marketing guy:
My name is Truls Olufsen-Mehus. I am honored to start in Act 3D as PR and marketing executive with Lumion as my main responsibility.
I have studied Lumion and competitors for some weeks, looked up Google searches and Youtube videos of tutorials to compare products. The nice guys behind Lumion have been eager explaining what makes Lumion special, so it is hard to take it all in from the guys actually created the software.
That is why I thought I should ask the forum, hoping to get some answers to increase my understanding of what Lumion means to the actual users of the software. I wish those interested in sharing, please take a few minutes to think about and answer in any way you want. Thanks in advance for your valuable time, broadening my understanding of what Lumion can do for people:
5 Questions about Lumion and you:
1) How did you get to know about Lumion? (word of mouth, video, forums, other?)
2) Why did you eventually download and start to use Lumion? (what triggered you initially?)
3) Why do you still use Lumion, what makes it valuable to you? (specifics are interesting)
4) What would you say, if you had tried Lumion Free and your boss/board was reluctant to buy it, what would be your argument to convince them to buy?
5) Are you a free user, Basic or Ultimate user?
Please add any other comment or info and feel free to send me a personal message if you prefer that to forum post
Thanks a lot, looking forward to read your points of view on Lumion!
In answer to your question, I know a lot about what the developers are thinking and doing because I read the forums. I've been a Lumion customer since the beginning and I have been on these boards since the beginning. Anyone can ask the developers a question. There is no "socialist" plot to rip you off. But I do have another question:
For the last time, NO ONE HAS OFFERED THE UPGRADE TO ME FOR FREE. They said if I had asked nicely and was able to show some hardship (or some socialist sentiment) (please don't tell me I've offended some socialist leaning person on here now) they would have given a free upgrade. If they had, there would be no point to this thread.
If you had gotten the upgrade for free, would you still call shenanigans?
