Sounds like some good new pieces.
Patience is a virtue someone once said.
Did the ability for imported terrain mesh to behave like Lumion terrain make it?  For multiple dropping of plants? cars, peeps - or whatever?  Ability to "Place selected objects on imported Mesh" (button-whatever) -  big Time saver - helps with the floaters too.
most real world projects would want that data as the model set-good for the architects in the audience.

Still diggin my Lumion 1.0 4-ever!
I'm doin things in it I could never do without it.   :)
It is vast.

I want bugs to be fixed, not any new features until then. I want to be able to uninstall Lumion 1 from my computer.

How will you fix these bugs for users that will decide not to upgrade to "ultimate ultimate".

We also fixed many bugs. The new top version doesn't prevent us from fixing bugs.

But I will not get these fixes if I will not upgrade, am I right?

Please make this clear then. I read all three pages carefully and understood just the opposite. There are probably other people like me.

Good morning !

I don't like to complain but if I understand well:
If you have 5 plugins you have Ultimate already. If you have 4 your offer is the same as buying 1 plugin indeed.
So my offer is not an offer ? You can't call it "offer" if it change nothing to me,
mainly if people who buy less plugin than me will pay the same thing, it's not really fair...
So everybody saves money except people who bought 4 plugin ? Is that right ?
Don't misunderstand me, I am not angry, I just want to understand.

If you have Basic + 4 plugins just email Arthur and ask for a special price.

Dear Lumion staff, I hope you don't mind me remarking I find your ways of updating quite confusing. And probably not entirely fair as regards early adopters of new versions. Have you ever thought about a subscription model?

Will we be able to try the "Ultimate" ultimate version to help us decide if it's worth it before buying.

Yes,can you please clarify that? We have been told that Ultimate users will have to pay to get the version 2.2, good news if it's free!

Hi Michael.

Pricing a product is, perhaps, the next biggest thing after developing the product itself, and pricing a product that is a niche product that can be used by hugely different market areas, is near science.

Every price model has been considered and discussed, both internally and externally with chosen target groups. At the end of the day it is the decision of the leaders based on analysis and hopefully good sense of judge.

Still it is very interesting to read comments from user forums, and I wish that every one that comment on pricing and product would state more of your own background:

a) what line of business are you in
b) what part of your business is enhanced with Lumion
c) What is the option instead of Lumion and why (time, cost, quality, features, training)
d) What 3D modeling tool do you use, are you a Revit user, SU, ArchiCAD, 3DSMAX etc.

Thanks for your feedback, keep them coming.

After june 1st we will only sell Lumion and Lumion Pro on the website. Lumion Ultimate still exists for early adopters but you can't buy it anymore.

Lumion Pro is Lumion Ultimate + standalone viewer creator and a few more features. Ultimate users still get Lumion Ultimate 2.2 which also is a great update and it is free. But you can't create the viewer files with it for that you need Pro.

A made a small draft image in photoshop to show the timeline a bit.

As you can see Ultimate 2.1 to 2.2 is free.

We will have a really good offer for early adopters to go Pro.

Hi, I do architecture visualisiation, unfortunatly we are not paid for that, our clients take it for granded. They (as always) want the best possible result for nothing. So we are forced to use the newest and most advanced software, but get not paid for it.

I have no problem with spending something on improvements. I have no problem to pay for the upgrade, but you should find a upgrade modus like once a year, two times a year for e.g. Shure we will not pay 100€ each month.

Most software vendors we use, have something like upgrade insurance for about 10€ to 25€ per month, payable half a year.

We do not use autodesk products, we use a swiss program called Messerli EliteCAD.

Again everyone with Lumion Ultimate 2.x gets there Lumion Ultimate 2.2 FOR FREE.

We just have a new product in the range.

If a software company create a new product why should they give that for free to existing customers?

Also if you don't like our new version DON'T buy it.

I don't agree that Lumion Pro is needed else a client doesn't want your work. I wish that was the case though :P
