I think if people know the schedule for software release, they can budget it in for the year. Lets face it, Lumion is less expensive than most if not all rendering / animation packages. I know there are differences between the software...i think i saw a running list somewhere on the forum
, but overall it is one of the most cost effective solutions out there.
Maybe because the software is so young and there are advancements every week if not everyday, it would make sense for a 6 month release schedule. I think people will be happy if they have a stable version before upgrade, as they purchased it with the current specs at that time. If they want further features, they will need to upgrade...or maybe you allow for 15% savings if someone waits for 2 releases before upgrade and 30% if someone upgrades immediately. This would help all.
Have you thought of a subscription style upgrade opportunity? Autodesk has this type of system, it may be beneficial for Lumion as well. Just thought i would give my 2 cents.
