The plugins are inside the SP2. When you have downloaded it you will have to login instead of using the dongle. This will activate your plugin through the login server process.

Ah okay. Nice. :)

PS: SOme more informations about the plugins itself would be nice so people know what they buy. Like the catalogue of the new plants, people or screenshots of effects.

This update is quite large. Maybe a bit to big for the time we had. This means most information and the website is not up to date at this release time. The coming few weeks there will be specific pages with information.

I am on holiday from tomorrow till the 27th. So lets hope there are not many critical errors in the new release :P

There are 120+ new trees in the tree plugin pack.

The 3d silhouettes have a special shader and there are many which you could see in the demo movie.

The movie pack has the Dof the painting effect the sharpen and the lensflare effect right now.

The special effects have the fire smoke fog and fountain.

The weather pack has the ocean and the waterfall shader.

Besides creating more packs we will keep filling the current plugins with new content.

Enjoy the big changes of the base release!

Does this mean that any purchased plug-in will be updated with added content for free?

BTW, you are not allowed to take vacation! :P

You asked what's new in "Lumion Basic" with Service Pack 2...

Well, apart from bug fixes and the new plug-ins, here's a brief list of changes/improvements:
__________________

BUILD SECTION

The selection and transform system have received a major overhaul so that it's a lot easier to select and move/rotate/scale objects, even if they're close together.

The water material (which you can apply to your imported objects) now also lets you adjust the foam amount near the edges/shores.

You can also use a colour picker to make the cars any colour you want (Modify object -> Options), and you can turn the 2D billboard people into silhouettes (Modify object -> Options).

The flare from the sun has been improved and there are also new tone mapping options in the Weather section which should help you achieve a more realistic/less-game-like look.
__________________

MOVIE SECTION

You can now animate some of the movie effects with keyframes which should make it straightforward to make more complex video sequences.

Ferry has also made sure you can load saved camera viewpoints in both the Photo and the Movie sections (CTRL + 1, 2, 3... to save them, and 1, 2, 3... to load them).

After animating objects with the "Move Item" effect, the objects will now move while you edit the camera animation for the clip, so that it's easier to synchronise the movement of the camera with the animated objects.

The ColorGrading effect in the Movie section has also been overhauled, so that it takes the new tonemapping into account.

I'm pretty sure there's stuff I've forgotten to add to this list - we'll see :)

Solid features. All I need now is a better download rate so I don't have 15kb/sec. ;)
I guess I will try again tomorrow morning.

This was mentioned elsewhere about increasing download speed.

Let me know if it is malware free   :+
