I think if people know the schedule for software release, they can budget it in for the year. Â Lets face it, Lumion is less expensive than most if not all rendering / animation packages. Â I know there are differences between the software...i think i saw a running list somewhere on the forum
, but overall it is one of the most cost effective solutions out there. Â
Maybe because the software is so young and there are advancements every week if not everyday, it would makeÂ senseÂ for a 6Â monthÂ release schedule.Â I think people will be happy if they have a stable version before upgrade, as they purchased it with the current specs at that time. Â If they want further features, they will need to upgrade...or maybe you allow for 15% savings if someone waits for 2 releases before upgrade and 30% if someone upgradesÂ immediately. Â This would help all.
Have you thought of a subscription style upgradeÂ opportunity? Â Autodesk has this type of system, it may beÂ beneficialÂ for Lumion as well. Â Just thought i would give my 2 cents.
