- The upgrade scheme is the same (buy 4.0, get free updates until 5.0)
- Prices are no subject to change
- For prices check: lumion3d.com/lumion-4-0-update
- For hardware recommendations check: lumion3d.com/faq and the FAQ in this forum

3) is the space in Lumion 4.0 Pro bigger than in Lumion 3.2?

If you mean the part of the terrain that you can edit: No, it's the same in Lumion 4.0.

If you are referring to file size on harddisk, Lumion 4 is larger as there is more content included.  The exact size for download and when installed on a harddrive will not be known until final packaging and release.

As Morten mentioned, the editable terrain is the same.  Note however that where you need more than that, you can import your own terrain from 3d modelling applications as a mesh.  You do this in the same way to import a building.

Lumion world size is 42 km radius.  The editable terrain is 2048mx2048m.

Correct, your graphics card only has 1664 PassMark points. 1500 points are required for very simple scenes. There's more information in this FAQ post.

and maby for the staff does Lumion 4 take advantage from a multi GPU?
No, Lumion 4 is unchanged in this regard. There's more information in the FAQ post above.

You can only type in a position in Build mode, not when animating models. Thus applies to both Lumion 3.2.1 and 4.0.
