How to get the pro features?

Hi,
We recently bought the Ultimate version.
I am really surprised regarding the PRO feature and that it would cost extra to upgrade.
I have not followed the discussions here, and would therefor love to get some information.

1. We bought the ultimate version, so that we would NOT get asked to pay extra throughout the year. How come you now have a new version..above Ultimate...

2. How much would it be to add the pro features...even thought I am really not ok with having to pay more after spending alot of money just a few months back.

Thanks for a quick reply.

Tryed new version 2.2 and its working very well, congrats to developer-team!
But how to get that fab pro features? When do you release Pro?
And, as said above, how much is it to an old Ultimate-user?

I've read that some 66% discount will be available for current Ultimate users? (Or just imagining...)

Given that I have seen a € 2,999 price tag somewhere, 1/3 of that would be around €500 - but do not lynch me (either "party") if this is some mistaken speculation only...

I think 1/3 of 2.999€ is about 1.000€... ;)
And nobody will lynch you. But its possible that your math-teacher will give you extra homework... :-D

Well, if you have ultimate, it's € 1.999 already. I meant "upgrading" - which should probably be the  difference between the two.

Last time I went to maths classes was around 30 years ago so my maths can indeed be a bit rusty however. :D

OK, Ok. :-X
By now its like reading the crystal-sphere til the release of pro.
So you think if i have ultimate, this means 2.999 - 1.999 = 1000€ and then adding the discount of -66%?? (To have another look into the sphere...)

Cannot believe that Lumion Pro will cost 2999. That's double the cost of the normal edition. Just to get export function and a few additions? No way. I'm guessing 1999

Wow...I must say I am now more confused regarding the cost of the PRO version than before posting my question initially...:)

Team Lumion, how about an official statement regarding the costs...you have added the features in the new version (with a buy button) but there is no information.

I seriously hope you are not charging Ultimate users 500+ Euro for just adding the so called PRO features...we have already spent substantial amount of money to be "Ultimates"...

Yes the price is 500 euro to upgrade to Pro.

And if you look at the comparison table you can see the new Lumion costs 1500 euro but it is the old Ultimate with less content.

So new future users of Lumion going Pro actually is giving you a lot.

Our beta team consists of 11 people from this forum and the prices have been debated for a long time this was the eventual vote.

Remember that with the old Lumion Ultimate to get a client seeing your projects in realtime you needed to buy a Lumion Basic license. With Pro this cost is gone.

We will send out the Ultimate offer to Pro in the next 30 minutes. You can already see the buy button in the user section.

As for it not being worth it. DON'T BUY IT if you don't think it is worth it!

The name and products that are here now are also all debated for a long time and voted on.

So the professionals in this forum think this is the best strategy lets hope we are all right.

I'm sorry, but this price seems excessive compared to some additional features and not necessarily essential
I hope to see some videos examples some plugins in action
I know this is hard work for you but you also know that all Europe is in crisis.
I spent 1700€ for ultimate version in late 2011, so i'm not sure i could spend € 500 after five months
