Title: What's new in Service Pack 2
Post by: Arthur on June 17, 2011, 10:21:45 am
What's new in Lumion Basic 1 Service Pack 2

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





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

What's in the plugin packs so far?

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):

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.


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


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.


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


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

Stay tuned for some examples of what's in the new plugin Packs.

About the credit system, the plugin packs, upgrades, Lumion Basic 1 SP1 vs Lumion Ultimate 1 SP2 and Lumion 2 (Due in late 2011)

Here are some answers to all your questions about the credit system, upgrades, Lumion Basic versus Lumion Ultimate etc.

The first plugin Pack is free for Lumion Basic customers; if you go to the Customer Area there should be 1000 credits on your account.

We obviously want to keep adding new content and functionality to the existing plugin Packs to make them worth the investment.

Since you get the first plugin Pack for free (1000 credits) as a Lumion Basic customer, it will only cost 4000 credits to upgrade (minus the cost of any plugins you already own).

If you get 1 plugin for free, then purchase 3 plugin Packs at 1000 credits each, and finally decide to upgrade to Lumion Ultimate, you will only have to spend 1000 more credits. And once you have Lumion Ultimate, you will no longer be required to purchase plugin Packs.

We hope to have more plugin Packs ready later. Some of the proposed Packs are as follow (this is subject to change):

I should also mention that there will be a whole range of ways to earn credits in the future, for example by helping us sell Lumion, or by providing us with models for the object library. So upgrading should be a lot more affordable if you help us out.

In addition, you will also see an expansion of the base object library in Lumion Basic/Ultimate once version 2 is released in late 2011.

Upgrade cost to version 2.0 and plug-ins 2.0 will be announced later. Effectively it will be a percentage of the total price you payed for Lumion basic plus plug-ins or Lumion Ultimate. In the past Act-3D has always used a 30% upgrade fee.
