Title: Lumion 6.0.1 Released
Post by: Morten on January 08, 2016, 11:39:15 am
Dear Lumion users,

This is just to let you know that version 6.0.1 of Lumion, Lumion Pro and Lumion Viewer has been released.

We'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support, feedback, error reports and patience since Lumion 6.0 was released. Version 6.0.1 is primarily a maintenance update, and we hope the error fixes and changes will make Lumion even better and easier to use.

Best regards from all of us at Act-3D!

Please read the release notes below to see what has changed.

DOWNLOADING LUMION 6.0.1
Licensed customers will receive an email with download instructions within the next 24 hours (please check your Spam folder on your email account). Please note that the email will be sent to the email address that was used when Lumion 6 was purchased, so if you work for a large organisation you may have to ask the person who bought Lumion to forward the email to you.

If you haven't received the email within 24 hours, please forward your Lumion 6 license number and purchase receipt to [email protected], so they can send you another email.

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 4.x or earlier, you will have to remove and re-assign all materials and Movie/Photo effects in Lumion 6.0.1.

IMPORTANT: AUTOCAD & DWG IMPORT UPDATE
1) If you use AutoCAD or DWG files, please click here (http://lumion3d.com/dwg-to-lumion-bridge/) to download and install the latest version of the DWG to Lumion Bridge software.

2) Please download the attached file (DWG_Hotfix_for_6.0.1_Unzip_in_3rd_Folder.zip) and unzip it in the "3rd" folder in the Lumion 6.0.1 installation folder (Choose "Overwrite"). This fixes a couple of issues for two user-submitted DWG files.

LUMION 6.0.1: RELEASE NOTES

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

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 6.0.1, simply save the effects in Photo mode in Lumion 4.5.1 or Lumion 5.0 and load the effect file in 6.0.1 via the context menu button above the effect stack.

If you try to load scenes or imported model files made with Lumion 4.x or earlier, you will have to remove and re-assign all materials and Movie/Photo effects in Lumion 6.0.1.
