I would like to know the following in order to make the best purchasing decision:

What is the approximate relative total cost to upgrade in the following paths?

1. Lumion Ultimate 2.2 to Lumion Pro 2.2 to Lumion Pro 3.0

vs.

2. Lumion Ultimate 2.2 to Lumion Pro 3.0

I'm not expecting exact costs; I just want the answer to this basic question: Presupposing I will be upgrading to Lumion Pro 3.0, which of the two upgrade paths above will cost less? I can live with Ultimate 2.2 until Pro 3.0 is released, so this is purely a cost-driven (not a needs-driven) question.

I'm ready and willing to upgrade immediately, but I just need to know that it's in my best interest upgrading to Lumion Pro 3 from a total-cost standpoint.

Lumion Ultimate 2.2 to Pro 3.0 is cheaper then going for Pro now in 2.0

The reasoning behind this is that you are working with pro already from now instead of in 6-8 months time from now.

I don't know how much cheaper in the end.

About the basic users having a cheaper upgrade path to pro then Ultimate users is also this reason. Ultimate users had long access to all our features and content.

Also we are canceling basic and we feel we should therefore come with a really good offer for that group.

It was hard technically for us to have a price per person which is based on the number of plugins already bought. Therefore we choose the amount of 150 euro. We decided that users with Basic + 4 will get Ultimate 2.2 for less.

With this amount the average basic user gets a good deal. But of course a basic user with 0 plugins has the best deal of all.

I hope you understand that we can't plan ahead who gets the best deal of all.

So yes a basic user who used only basic with no plugins untill now has the cheapest method to go Pro now.

But I hope you understand that this is only 1 or 2 people who where that lucky.

Thanks Ferry I can understand and totally appreciate where you're coming from. I'll go ahead and order my upgrade to Pro. For the record, I'm concerned by the escalating cost to use the latest and greatest version of Lumion, but for now I'm OK. Thanks for advising and assisting me with my upgrade question! :)

The Pro version really does offer a lot; the ability to give my clients and coworkers an interactive experience is absolutely awesome!  8)
