Dear Lumion users,

Many months of hard work is now over for us, and it's time for you to reap the rewards.

We would like to thank all of you for your support, feedback, error reports and patience since Lumion 5.0, 5.3, 5.7, 5.7.1 and 5.7.2 were released over the last year.   

Lumion 6 brings the quality of your presentations to the next level with new glass, enhanced reflections, shadows & lighting and many more new features.

LUMION VIEWER 6.0
Lumion Viewer 6.0 has not yet been released. This post will be updated as soon as it's ready.

COMPATIBILITY
Please note that scenes and LS6 files saved in 6.x are NOT backwards compatible with earlier versions. 

If you try to load scenes or imported model files made with an earlier version of Lumion, you will have to re-apply all materials in Lumion 6.0. For that reason, we recommend that you finish any Lumion 4.x, 5.0 and 5.3 scenes, and only start up new scenes in 6.0. Scenes commenced in 5.7 or above can be opened and worked on with Lumion 6.0.

LUMION 6.0: RELEASE NOTES

COMPATIBILITY
Please note that scenes and LS6 files saved in 6.x are NOT backwards compatible with earlier versions. If you try to load scenes or imported model files made with Lumion 1.x, 2.x, 3.x or 4.x, you will have to remove and re-assign all materials and Movie/Photo effects in Lumion 6.0.

MIGRATING SCENES FROM LUMION 4.5.1 AND 5.0
Lumion 5.3 and newer allow users to configure a different combination of effects for each photo in Photo mode. The introduction of this feature in 5.3 means that older projects load with an empty list of effects in Photo mode.
If you want to apply the same set of effects to photos in Lumion 6.0, simply save the effects in Photo mode in Lumion 4.5.1 or Lumion 5.0 and load the effect file in 6.0 via the context menu button above the effect stack.
