Title: Plugin Previews?
Post by: Brian Hengelsberg on June 09, 2011, 06:18:59 pm
Is there any way to upload a screen shot of the elements available in the plugins.  Saw the movie, just want to be able to see trees, people, etc?  Hard decision to make for the 1000cr...hhhmmmm what to choose ;)

Here's some info on what's in the Packs so far (this will change in the future as we upgrade the Packs with more content):
___________________________

TREES & PLANTS
The Trees & Plants Pack is great value for um... credits as it contains a whopping:

I think it's fair to say that there's something for everyone in this pack, for example 12 new willow species/variants, 12 types of bamboo, many flowering trees/plants for Spring scenes, autumnal leaves on trees for Autumn scenes and loads of new evergreens and broadleaf trees in general.
___________________________

PEOPLE AND ANIMAL PACK

You've probably already seen the new 3D silhouettes in the video on the frontpage :)
___________________________

MOVIE EFFECTS PACK

I could waste a thousand words on explaining how cool these effects are, but we'll have some renderings/videos ready soon, so you can see for yourself.
___________________________

SPECIAL EFFECTS PACK

The effects can be customized with various parameters to fit a multitude of situations.
___________________________

ENVIRONMENT AND WEATHER PACK

I'm sure you've already seen those in the videos on the frontpage.

Where's the sound plugin?

Post by: Morten on June 09, 2011, 09:02:01 pm
This is not available yet, so you'll need to add sounds in a 3rd party video editor for now.

Hi Morten

After read the news in web lumion There is a situation a little rare. I mean:
 
If "Lumion Ultimate 5000 cost credits and this included Completely SP2 version all plugins, Then this will cost 150 * 5 = 750 €

In Other Hand, For Those Who Have Bought users Lumion the SP1 version and Need to buy 4000 credits for get all new plugins, the cost for us Will Be € 799 + 4 * 150 = 1,399 € and in less Than one year of use.

This Would Not Be really fair for Existing users. Are Indeed this situation?

Also, do not understand what happens with downloading SP2 version it takes approximately "35 hours" to download

Lumion ultimate costs YOU 5000 credits; however, if you are not an existing user, Lumion ultimate costs 10,000 credits, or so I've read.  So existing users pay 150 euro less than new customers due to 1000 credit voucher.

That's right, ultimate cost for ME 4000 CREDITS, when I can download :D

Hi everyone,

My question is: what are the new features for SP2? In other words; apart of the plugins, what extra and new  features are offered to the the users at the moment of installation of the service pack 2 (not including the plug - ins)?

Other than that , i will like to see the previews for the packages, can't wait!!!

Great work Lumion staff ;)

I really want to know when they will release version 2 and how much it will cost. If I spent another 750€ for ultimate and version2 comes in around 6 months whats teh benefit?

I would get ultimate for version 2 plus the option for free plugins which are not even released at the moment.
Taking the current SP releases into account there wont be another SP now until V2. Maybe one which fixes bugs only but not new features.

Ultimate is in the same download. If your account is upgraded and you start Lumion again it will automatically enable all ultimate functions.

I'm looking at all the issues that are appearing in the forum and honestly I'm getting scared Lumion install SP2, as well as the plugin package that we install. Therefore I'd like to answer some of the following questions:
  1 .- We can install SP2 Lumion or have to resolve a question that requires us to desistalar and reinstall.
2 .- You can download the plugin that we can buy, although we have no Lumion INTAL SP2 and install it.
3 .- We would like to know if buying the rest of the plugin, ie the remaining four have some type of offer, because as I have read each plugin package worth 150 €.

We sincerely believe that your program is fascinating, but the price of the plugin out to be a bit excessive.

Best regards

Hi Severino,

To my best knowledge,

1) you need not uninstall Version 1 SP1 in order to install SP2.

2) All plugins are included into the single download of SP2(32 or 64 bit - although currently 64 bit is being recompiled but maybe by the time you are reading this, it is there again). It is the purchase/selection (and the resulting software key) that activates the plugin on your computer (but you download it anyway).
This also means that they are not available for SP1 separately.

3) Maybe best would be to read this post about pricing and general business strategy:

Gaieus thank you very much, but I must have explained wrong.
When I said what I install and uninstall SP2 Lumion concerned solely
ie as there are problems with the Nueces SP2, I am worried about installing it
and then pull out a corrected version without the errors that seem to present the current SP2.
By the way, Gaieus, I see that you have installed Ultimate Lumion:
Is the 64-bit version?, since my system is 64 bits.
Can you tell me has cost you € this version?. I am very interested.
and finally: Have you tested and will work fine?.

Thank you for your attention, Regards

Well, in the meanwhile (since my last post) I installed SP2 (32 bit as I still have a 32 machine).

64 bit is still not available (as I have just checked). However what I found is that it installs in a different directory and I can still launch SP1 separately. So if you have concerns, you can just go ahead and install SP2 (when available for 64bit) and if you experience any issues, go back and work in SP1.

I am DLing the 32 bit and run it on my 64 bit machine to "play" with.  Make sure before you do ANY upgrade you copy your Scenes and Library folders....just in case something goes wrong, u can restor a copy.
