With LumenRT you pay an extra $200 when you buy the software and you get a great maintenance package that includes free upgrades of full versions. Plus the cost of the software is about 1/4 the cost of Lumion, depending on what version you buy. With that kind of pricing it is at least worth it to download and try it.  I have used Vue6 before though and didn't really like how the UI worked.

 :)  Soon be the 20th  :-D

Not forgetting of course that it was not that long ago (May/June) when the major update for v4 was released as v4.5/v4.5.1.

Just having a look at their web site and price list. 

From what I can tell a new (basic product - Studio) license is $795 and an upgrade from prior version license (previously known as Review) is $595.  So although the $200($159) covers for updates during the version, their actual upgrade pricing is set at 75% of previous version.  So almost the cost of buying a new license each year.

Well maybe I am reading it wrong. It says one year free upgrades to full releases. I just tried to figure out what exatly that meant and couldn't figure it out. I would assume any new releases within the year you would get. But I guess that doesn't mean LumenRT 5 if it came out within the year?

I downloaded the the trial version. It isn't bad from what I can see but nothing compared to Lumion in terms of easy of use and powerful settings and objects at your disposal. I may be an idiot but I can't figure out what is included in the program and what is an add-in. The website really sucks.

It is good to look at the other programs, even if it just confirms the choice you already made.

I wouldn't draw this conclusion based on upgrade pricing from v3 (review) to v4(Studio). Review was a completely different and more simple application than Studio. It was also a lot cheaper: don't know exactly, but I thought it was $295. LumentRT 4 Studio is far more advanced, although not as advanced as Lumion of course ;)

Damn ! This is pretty scary    :o

Hope that this doesn't mean " Hey guys don't expect too much from this upgrade !"

Cheers !

Additions to the library are always awesome.  That's what makes the program so great in my opinion.
