Free Lumion no budget- Need it badly

Hi ! Im a fifth year architecture student. I knew about your product from my professor since I am looking for an architectural animation software that could really help me explain my ideas in my thesis very well. I dont really have any budget to buy the professional version. And the trial version has a watermark which I think is no so nice to be seen bu the judges. I would like to ask if you guys give one year free trial ( without watermark version ) for architecture students?  I think its better to have lumion in this way rather than downloading some torrent cracks... thank you very much for your kindness.

Hi Pucca, I would very much advise you not to download an illegal version of Lumion, regardless of whether you are a student or not. We routinely ban pirates from accessing the Lumion website, and I can assure you that you will make things unnecessarily hard for yourself in the future if you want to use Lumion professionally after using an illegal version ;)

Anyway, to return to your original question, there are 2 Educational versions of Lumion:

Lumion Free Edu
This has the same features as Lumion (Normal) but you save almost €1,500 as it's completely free. It has a small Lumion logo and a small 'Not for commercial use' text in the top left corner. It's not as noticeable as in Lumion Free).

Lumion Pro Edu
€299 per license. This has the same features as Lumion Pro but you save almost €2,700. There's no logo on renderings in this version, just a very small 'Not for commercial use' text in the top left corner. You can see what it looks like in this video.

There's more information about the educational versions of Lumion on this page.

By the way, all versions of Lumion 3.1 will be released soon (Free/Normal/Pro/Educational).

I'm sure the judges would or should think otherwise.  In other words they know its student work, and they would appreciate your honesty in complying with Lumion requirements for a watermark on a freely provided version.

Some professors will give a student a hard time for such things.  It is architecture school...jus sayin.

A hard time for displaying a logo + 'not for commercial use' text on renderings? Why?

If they insist, please tell them that they can get rid of the logo for €299 per license ;)

You can only understand if you have stood in front of a jury of professors whose ego's surpass their own built work.  Typical at universities these days.

Tell them a product from Netherlands -a country with rich architecture- is sponsoring your project.

Extremely sweet deal. Take it, Pucca.

BTW, Morten, maybe that "not for commercial use" could be changed in the future to a more palatable "Lumion for students" or "Educational version", or even better "For architecture students only".

YES!  Good one.  The Architecture in the Netherlands is truly beautiful.
