I hope we will have the full PRO features for lumion 3.0 for September.

30% offer is good but it should have all the options that will bring lumion 3.0

The list of objects in images or videos, different settings.

I trust lumion team to provide us with all these elements in September.

Before Christmas time ..... :-P

Please don't punish people who are not budgeted for September, why don't you -at least- offer a fixed upgrading price until Jan 2013?

What is the offer if you have two licences or more?
Is there a subscription offer?
When do we have to pay if we do order before the end of September?
Thanks.

This is a hefty price. Even my 3dsmax subscription is not that expensive and I really need to know what ground-breaking features I get for this money. I'm really happy with Lumion and only some really Reflections and GI would make me buy I think. Otherwise it has all most I need.


PS: If I buy in Sept. but win the Bekerman contest which end in Oct. will I get a refund then? :D ;)

We have people who want to upgrade anyways even if they do not know the feature set yet. That's what the early bird discount is for.

From this point on we will be releasing more and more features about Lumion 3.0 in the form of stories, movies and images. This way you will be able to see if the upgrade price is worth it.

By the time the early bird offer ends you should have a good picture of the new features and changes. You'll probably find the upgrade is totally worth it. We have done a lot of hard work.

Hi,
will it gives perhaps also a discount price, for the people who buy in this month the new version of Lumion 2.5 (3.0) or only for the upgrades?
Title: Re: Lumion 3.0 upgrade prices and discounts
Post by: Michael Betke on September 07, 2012, 02:17:08 pm
So if I understand properly I have to spent 699€ blindly and get the full feature list only after Sept.?

If I dont want to spent my money with a shot into the blue I wont be able to get the early bird discount?

Sounds very strange to me..
Title: Re: Lumion 3.0 upgrade prices and discounts
Post by: IP_jeanlo on September 07, 2012, 02:25:25 pm
If I understand correctly, you must wait for the price of 799 € to see the 3.0 update

I do not really understand the process lumion team.

For me, when I buy a washing machine ... I look at the various functions. I do not buy eyes closed.

In this time of crisis, I can not afford an upgrade eyes closed and I think I'm not the only one.

I want to know how many people will buy the license without having any information about the update.

Title: Re: Lumion 3.0 upgrade prices and discounts
Post by: thecravatman on September 09, 2012, 10:31:03 am
This is an interesting thread and made me think about how I really want to fund Lumion. I have bought into Lumion and want to keep using it for the foreseeable future, with the investment so far I would have to use it for say 3 years at least before writing it off financially or maybe I could sell the licences if something else came along that was even greater. This is a possibility but Act selling it and it going to the dogs is probably the bigger danger for me.

Whatever the future brings, at the moment I am wedded to Lumion, even if I am underwhelmed by the feature set of version 3.0, which I very much doubt based on the efforts that the team have put in to date, I surely would have to pay significantly more if I wanted to upgrade to the features found in version 4.0. Should I run this risk or should I ask for a less painful way of keeping up to date?

This brings me inexorably to the subscription system that the likes of Autodesk and Adobe have moved to. I thing that a monthly sub or an annual one, together with a discount for paying three years in advance, as Autodesk offer, is an option that I would welcome. When one has a challenging year we could pay monthly, if we had a bumper year we could pay three years up front.

What do you make of that? It this financially savvy or just a fan boy waiting for the latest tweaks the team throws to us?

Post by: SEVERINO on September 09, 2012, 11:47:01 am
Hi Lumion team, I hope the version 3, meets expectations, the team's hard work, but like fellow forum should anticipate a scheme with new features, improvements and innovations.
In our case, I hope some progress in the field of terrain modeling. We are faithful followers of Lumion, with great effort my organization has updated the software, as queeste advances and tools have always demanded more accurate terrain modeling with current (brushes with smaller sizes varied and detailed), similar to zbrush , or at least some of its main tools. As before, I have to congratulate you on the achievements so far, but I am quite sure that with advances in Lumion terrain modeling would expand its market in other fields. Lumion, in its new version 3, and has a cost high enough to cover other needs, different architecture.

Our interest and desire is constructive criticism, to get the best of Lumion. Therefore, we hope not to disturb anyone.

Best regards,
Severino

Hi all

When you are on a boat that sails, or you jump from the boat or you continuous the navigation. The rest you can tell it to the seagulls.

Therefore I make a summary

699 € in September,  799 € in December,   999 € in January

It is merely an operation of profitability

If I buy with closed eyes, I save 300 € but If I buy with opened eyes I am going to be very badly in January.

All that to say that I remain on the boat because the seagulls listened  nothing at all your commentaries.

And if you jump a journey, the next journey  will be  even more expensive. That follows the curve of oil.

Confess  that it’s like a drug and you are already tear.  To delay the new injection It’s going to be hard.

Don't be afraid if you close your  eyes , because I am not the driver, I am only a passenger with a poor English level.

The upgrade page shows major version 2 to major version 3.
In 2.5, the major version is 2. Minor upgrades are free (2.0 to 2.5 for instance), major versions (2.5 to 3.0) require an upgrade fee.

ok, but then i really would like to know, if any of those wishes and ideas, we write down, are already implemented, since this may be an important factor for the decision.

there is , for example, the definitive wishlist section  and lots of re wishes in the forum.

could you not simply make a table and say : yes, no yes yes yes......i mean, 3 month before official release a software company normaly knows all features already....

This is something they never do until they are certain that they can squeeze into a new version. Lesson learned: in the past, there were hints of (possible) future feature and when users' expectations weren't met, they were pissed off. So no, they cannot reveal everything they are planning. If everything would already be certain (developed, tested and correctly working), they could release the new version today.

Now for instance clouds casting shadows and the ability to fly through them has been requested (even "faked" workarounds posted on the forums) so this is something users have wished. The same with saving/reapplying custom materials (now already in 2.5) which was a MAJOR step IMO.

Well, my hope is a better / more integrated / precise / etc. terrain import. I need a terrain (I have modelled) to be imported and so accurately (no 200m grey-scale) that I can run a creek in there. And still behave as Lumion terrain (maybe even sculptable but definitely not plants falling below). Etc... etc...

Hopefully one day...

If I understand correctly, the Pro upgrade would be:

Until october 31st: € 699

so far i only have used lumion free and i'm planning to buy lumion 3.0. will the full price (not the update price) be the same as for 2.5? or should i buy 2.5 with the included 3.0 update??
Title: Re: Lumion 3.0 upgrade prices and discounts
Post by: Morten on September 26, 2012, 11:35:30 am
Hi Carloh, I don't know if the price of Lumion and Lumion Pro will remain the same after 3.0 is launched, and I am not aware of any plans to change the price. As with any other business, I guess the developers of Lumion will raise or lower the price as they see fit, depending on how things go after the launch.

Getting 2.5 now with a free 3.0 upgrade (as opposed to waiting for a few months) will give you more time to use Lumion, so the question is whether you already have projects lined up that would benefit from using Lumion?

I am very disappointed to have logged in tonight to buy the upgrade, only to see that the price went up. I literally missed it by 5 minutes. I was under the assumption that the deadline worked on the users local time.

The deadline's timezone was not noted on the website anywhere.

Here I am in NY on at 7:15PM EST, and I missed the upgrade deadline by 5 minutes and I pay $388.23 more?

Unhappy.

The early bird discount is not over yet. It lasts until the release of Lumion 3.0. On the website you can also see that the price will raise in november, not october. I'm not sure what order you tried to place, but as far as I can see the discount on Pro 2 to Pro 3 upgrades is still being applied. If you are not sure about it contact sales [at] act-3d.com to help you with your purchase.

Arthur

Keep in mind the price on the website is in Euro's...not dollars...and there is a a conversion rate.  For instance today one US dollar is .7772 Euro's.  This means the software here in the US (as of today's rate) is $1800.09...which translates to 1399 Euros.  This might be where the confusion lies...

Lumion pricing has become too hefty. Lumion started at an attractive price of 799Euros complete with all functionality. Lumion now costs 3499Euros for first time users. A person upgrading from lumion ultimate (once top of the range) now has to pay 1799 Euros if you do not catch an early bird at 1399 Euros. The price has risen by 400% in the last 2 years. I think Lumion team should just reveal what version 3.0 contains all at once. This one item per week revelation is not helping at all. Reveal everything so people can decide on whether to catch an early bird or not. Catch a bird with fewer wings or not. My apology for sounding hard. |:( :-D

I think these are just the problems that a small group of talented programmers face when trying to manage a successful program. They need to be steered by us the users as they are great at creating software but maybe could do better with the whole business of delivering the product. They are trying to be innovative and rather than us be combative if we could be a bit more accommodating and suggest what we do want, that would get us all further forward.

I too struggle with the price and have asked for a subscription option, I have no doubt the team will consider this and address it once the pressure of getting 3.0 out is over. I want a quality product rather than a quick response to every point I raise.

The key point is that I run my business on Lumion and have to upgrade as I want any improvements and have no doubt Act-3D will deliver as well as they have in the last versions. Business is tough at the moment Lumion is a deal maker for us week in week out. We have great products and Lumion shows our customers how they fit into their worlds.

The problem with letting out all the details early is that if any problems occur and not everything makes the cut they are letting people down.

So I want to be positive and ask the team how can I pay over a period of time, is subscription a potential option? Also I want version three and the opportunity to shape what that is and the way the Act-3D moves forward. So how can we help?

3dk has finally been banned after yet another troll post which we have deleted (his reputation had also reached -8 which I think is the lowest somone ever got, so he wasn't exactly contributing to the community).

This time he accused Act-3D of stealing money from customers and advised people to use other software.

I should mention that 3dk has never paid for a license, and to put it mildly, he does not have a great track record in terms of respecting copyrights.

Among other things, he is using a Lumion rendering created by one of our customers to promote and sell his own visualisation services (no credit to the customer is given).

We have forwarded this information to the affected customer so that they can take action if they wish.

With all respect, it does not change the fact that, this early bird thing, without knowing what we get for our money, is unprofessional.

Please accept your customers as professional workers in professional firms, that have to argue for spending money. The customers are not hobby people, using lumoin for fun. Hack, Lumion is becoming one of the most expensive software in our company.  Your moved up a liga.

Welcome to monopoly where one rules certain areas of the market. ;)

At first I was not amused about this too but then I realized that I just had choosen two years of additional 3dsmax subscription and I will not know what features will be in there. Another egg-spline or something more amazing?! Okay I'm in Beta for 3dsmax so I at least know what I will get next year...want to be in lumion beta too. :D
Title: Re: Lumion 3.0 upgrade prices and discounts
Post by: jorgensen on October 11, 2012, 09:44:47 am
I think Act-3D should consider splitting up Lumion in two or products.

PRODUCT A
The core Lumion engine.

PRODUCT B
Different model packeges, e.g. north europa (I don't need palms :-) ), south europa, asia, america and others

PRODUCT C
Special filters

Then one can combine the featueres that fits one best.

This way act3d can prevent users from feeling that they buy an expensive modelviewer, as someone allready mentioned, but can select the feateures that gives one most value for money - we all have different needs.

Title: Re: Lumion 3.0 upgrade prices and discounts
Post by: Michael Betke on October 11, 2012, 11:01:05 am
I like the analogy with the model-viewer. But this applies for most tools where you use models. But this is the business game with software. lets take Adobe for example. You pay same price in EUR as in USD. Or get 80% discount if you work on a institution. Licensing costs are very hard to estimate. All in all its question of personal value. I guess I will update this year too because next year it would be even more expensive like it is mostly if you skip one version. On the other hand I don't have much paying projects at the moment using Lumion.

I was a fan of the plugin system they did. If you need something just buy it. But maybe it didn't pay off for Act-3D. If most people dont buy the heavy price then they will rethink. Its that simple. :)
It is even not a smart move if they would release GI and reflections now with Lum3 because most innovation for next years won't be away and sales could go down.

Lumion 3.0 new features looked very promising with the introduction of cloud cameras, and cloud shadows. The news was very exciting. I am however, beginning to get disappointed that the momentum seems to have been lost. The new features seem to be focused on content, rather than functionality and trickling in at a very slow pace. Please lumion team, give us at least one or two wow! features to keep the fire burning! We all would like to hear that Lumion can now import complex animations! or the movie editor now has sound editing capabilities! or terrain tools now have smaller brushes! road tools, reflections! or transparencies are now possible in all materials. If any of the above mentioned items were given, I do not think anyone would complain much about Lumion's current pricing. Furthermore, I think you should take people serious when they complain about cost. Telling them not to buy or buy alternatives is not a solution. We are all here with lumion because we believed lumion had something different to offer. :-D

I never needed to visit One. Now Act3d forces their clients to go for broke minimum 699,- - sink or swim.
This is alarming. And alarming is that I do not have the feeling that you take all the freaks and fans of Lumion3d seriously. You do not give feed back. Pity.
TF

Some people freak out because the full specs of 3.0 are not know yet. There's not enough information yet for them to decide to upgrade or not.

For those I would just like to say: Relax and wait until the release date. By that time you'll have a nice overview of everything and it will be easy to decide.

I'm sure Lumion 3.0 will be a huge improvement so I'm confident event the most skeptical people will love it. However, as long as Lumion 3.0 is not completely finished, Act-3D can not provide a complete list of features and specifications yet. The early bird discount is for those who are willing to take a leap of faith and trust Act 3D will deliver a top notch update.

Hello everybody,
First I didn't want to take part of the two threads related to the 3.0 update...but I will...
Let them work... they do what they want, isn't it ? (of course people say also what they want here...)
If someone think he would drive Act-3d better than Act-3d's team, i have an advice:
Create your start-up in architectural visualisation or visualisation or whatever and become rich...this is the worst I wish you.
I will not buy the "3.0" the eyes closed, and they have some functions to add if they want that I buy it. But this is business. It's very simple, they sell a product, we buy it ... or not !  :D

Good evening to everybody...

Regards  ;)

Thanks :-(

Post by: Brian Hengelsberg on October 15, 2012, 02:46:46 pm
Then wait for the release...is more money, but you will know what you are getting then.  For me, i  purchase the software yearly as i know that since the beginning they have added functionality with each update and release.  People shell out thousands of dollars on subscriptions or version updates for AutoCAD or others and have no idea what they are pre-paying for, but they do it anyway because it is the software they use/ need.

There will never be a list until release day for the upgrade... because it seems they are working up until release day to implement features.  I roll the dice, and so far have not lost as each version has been better than the last by leaps and bounds.

Hi Lumion team,

What would be the upgrade price for Lumion 2.5 pro to lumion 3.0 basic and from Lumion 2.0
ultimate to lumion 3.0 basic. Currently the pricing is only showing upward upgrade and none on downward upgrade i.e pro 2.0 to basic 3.0.

You cannot load Lumion 3 projects in Lumion 2. If you want to use Lumion 2 and Lumion 3 on one machine that is possible. If you have a Lumion 3 license, you can activate Lumion 2 as well with that license.

As far as I know, Truls will be sending a newsletter tomorrow which will announce the full line-up of features.

Hopefully the wait will have been worth it :)

Bear in mind that an upgrade to version 3.0 will include free updates until Lumion 4.0 is released in late 2013, so you're paying for more than just the announced 3.0 features.

As we've seen in previous years, those updates often include major new functionality and improvements.

Announcing the full feature list after the early bird has passed doesn't sound like you really care for your customers who have been asking for this information for a long time, so they can make informed decisions.

While I feel your distress, I come to a different conclusion. The fact that Lumion is being offered at all at an early bird price point is going above and beyond what they need to do for their loyal customers. Do you receive a discounted price for buying Windows 8 early? The reality is these guys (and gals?) are in business and need to be paid for their efforts in creating this software. In just about every other product out there you'd pay full price the day it comes out with no option for an early purchase discount. If you are willing and able to put your money up without having all of the information you may get a better deal, if not then you can still buy it at the regular price just as you would if you wanted to upgrade to a new OS or a new car or any other product. I am grateful for the opportunity to purchase this software early, I may not be after it comes out if it doesn't live up to my desires but, understanding the rules as they have been laid out for all to play by, I am glad to have a choice. I worry that they won't give us the choice to buy at an early bird discount in the future because of all the hassle. Do you like having a choice? (rhetorical)

@ 3D Bard...i agree 100%.  They probably would have been better off just saying early bird release of the next version is X cost, and never give an update.  You ether believe in the software, and want to have the latest and greatest updates...or you don't. 

So many criticisms of the update blog, the pace in which update posts were released, and this and that favorite wanted feature not shown.  In all honesty, i hated even reading the posts in this section of the forum as it seemed like it was never enough.  I have never been disappointed in an update/ upgrade, as new functionality has grown so quickly.  I do not personally think that Act3d would raise the price of the software update, and not deliver.  I pay for my licence personally as an individual...so i know shelling out the cash hurts.  But the software makes me money...really all that matters.

Post by: thecravatman on October 31, 2012, 08:10:32 pm
My view on the early bird option is that if you intend to stick with Lumion for a number of versions you might as well take the discount Act offer for your loyalty.

If you want to move over to something else be grateful that Act let you sell your license without the fuss of some major players.

It has been said many times but Act will not promote features that may not make it to the final version, how pissed off would you be if you were sold an upgrade on features that didn't appear.

I'm looking forward to the release in November and feel I have got a bargain too.

I think the real issue here is the high cost of the upgrade price. Granted the guys and gals need to be paid for their efforts, but most people will probably have appreciated a full disclosure of what the new features are for lumion 3.0. The upgrade price alone from ultimate to L3.0 pro can actually buy you a full application of Cinema 4D with some change left.http://3d-animation-software-review.toptenreviews.com/ (http://3d-animation-software-review.toptenreviews.com/)

With all due respect, I am not asking act 3d to provide features that will not make into L3.0, all I am saying is that it would have been beneficial to customers if the list of the undisclosed features that will be given tomorrow, after the early bird, were given before. We all would like to save some cash.

Thanks for pointing that out. Good to know that reflections made the cut.
I wonder what they mean by "accurate reflections"... Will they be just for planar surfaces? That would be enough for most projects, but still... one can always dream with full-blown raytraced reflections in the style of the serenity engine.  :-9

BTW, I wonder why I got the "buy now" button even though I already purchased the upgrade.  ???

I was a bit shocked as I just upgraded some mintes ago and the image doesnt show me the 699e discount. I clicked and on avengate i got it for early bird price.

I think this was last time I upgraded. They have to pull out a big rabbit next year and I don't have that much work for realtime at the moment. Adding two new GTX cards to my render cluster and cutting rendertimes more will have more benefit for me.

But all in all its a solid update for lumion 3. So i think its okay. :)

I'm sure they will find ways to amaze us again with the Spring Update in may 2013 and with Lumion 4.0 in November 2013. The wishlist is still long, and Lumion is still very young. And a complete overhaul to DirectX 11 (or maybe 12) is long overdue.

Ditto re respect, surely if they waited until all the features were revealed then it would be the upgrade offer not the early bird offer.
Anyway three hours and its all in the past.

It is a lot of money especially when compared to Sketchup renderers, but it is best of breed. I wonder if it will command such a premium this time next year.

I keep asking for a subscription option, ideally payable monthly. That's how I would prefer to pay.

Hi Proso, I am faced with the same problem. Apparently lumion does not have a "down grade price". The best alternative is to buy a new license at 399 euros, which is the cost of lumion 3.0 basic. See page http://lumion3d.com/upgrade. (http://lumion3d.com/upgrade.) What we don't know at the moment is the content of lumion 3.0 basic.

If you quit now, what options are there on the market that can deliver reasonable quality animations within the shortest possible time with lots and lots of plants? The answer is none that I know of. My advice is don't quit yet.
PS/
My apology Proso, the cost of lumion basic is not 399 euros. That is the price for current lumion 2.0 basic holders. We need more clarity on this issue. A lumion 2.0 holder has better options of easing into lumion 3.0 than anyone holding higher licences. This doesn't make sense, we should be given options to downgrade. |:( |:( |:( |:(

Hi Prose, in an earlier post, Arthur said that it is not possible to "downgrade" from Lumion Ultimate 2 to Lumion 3.

You lose a significant part of the content when going from Lumion 2 ultimate to Lumion 3 normal. That's why we don't provide the upgrade. Morten provided the sales e-mail address to see if we can arrange something.

There is no longer a Lumion Ultimate. In 3.0, you only have 2 options: "Lumion" or "Lumion Pro". As far as I know, "Lumion" will have about 1/3 of the library content of "Lumion Pro", and some features (to be determined) will be available only in "Lumion Pro". You can't go from Lumion 2.5 Ultimate to Lumion 3.0 (regular version), because you would lose lots of library content.

I wanted to know how much it will cost me to upgrade from 2.5 to 3.0 for educational license. Also, I still come across the same issue when I render in Lumion. Reflection. Whenever I apply reflection to any surface, it reflects the horizon line, and clouds, even when u r on the 1st flr inside a building. is there any trick to having the reflection done differently??? Also, I am assuming that Lumion will be coming at the end of this month?

Hi Fahad, Arthur says that it will cost €99 (ex VAT) to upgrade from Lumion Pro Educational 2.x to Lumion Pro Educational 3.

Also, I still come across the same issue when I render in Lumion. Reflection. Whenever I apply reflection to any surface, it reflects the horizon line, and clouds, even when u r on the 1st flr inside a building. is there any trick to having the reflection done differently???

Place the Reflection Control object (Lights & Special Objects -> Utilities) inside the building, preferably near the camera.

Also, I am assuming that Lumion will be coming at the end of this month?

We're working very hard on finishing Lumion 3 at the moment.

The solution with the animated reflection control works very well. About 90% fine. I used in the last contst with the large glass facades.

Just place a basic animation movie effect near the cam (or the best spot the cam looks to), adjust the height and move it with the path.
