Lumion Ultimate and Lumion Basic + 4 packs

I don't understand...
What's the difference between Lumion SP2 Basic + the purchase of 4 packs and Lumion Ultimate?

I think they are the same thing...or no?

Example1
I purchase a pack today, the next 3 packs next month, I pay a total of 150€ x 4 = 600€

Example2
I purchase today 4 packs all together for a total of 600€ and I get Lumion Ultimate

What's the difference?

If I buy 4 packs bundled I should receive a discount

I don't understand...

There is practically no difference. If you have one free pack and purchase 3 more (4 total), to upgrade to Ultimate, it will now only cost 1000 credits (price of the 5th pack).

So basically, if you do not have the money to upgrade to Ultimate at once, you can do it "gradually".

There is little difference NOW.
Don't forget the moment you have purchased Ultimate, you will get the rest of the plugins to be released for free as well. Obviously this makes a huge difference in the (slightly longer) run  ;)

Only 256? For starters  :D
But yes, once you have a Ultimate License,
the remainder of the plugins, to be released for Lumion1,  will be free.

Hi Gabrielefx, I think it's not fair for Aaron to answer this question for you. I don't think we want another dispute about about you didn't get what you pay for some months later.

The credit point system is very good, you don't have to buy all the plugins at once, just buy the ones that you need the most when you can each time. According to the qoute below, As you buy one particular plugin, 1000 credit will be deducted from total cost of the Lumion ultimate edition.

Also, 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).

Example
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.

So, you can wait for more plugins to be released later before you invest your money for an Ultimate edition. Besides, The maximum number of plugins you can buy is 4 anyway, after you have done that, other future plugin releases for Lumion 1 will be free.

Lumion officials, please do correct me if I am wrong.

Very Curious also.   :)

The whole Lumion world could be far from complete if desired.
The skill of the Lumion development team demonstrates that with jaw-dropping talents.
How far and how big does the Lumion world become?  Is this an added to world for 5 years?

Version 3 is called Lumion Infinite?   :D

There is still no official word about this. We have been told to sit and wait.

Ok, now I have understand....I'm distract but I don't like the credits philosophy...
If I buy an AE plugin (Trapcode) I will pay 100€ for each plugin (for example), if I want to purchase the bundle I will get a discount of 30% about, and I get all the plugins and upgrades too, why wait for the next plugins?
If I were crazy I could purchase 99.999.000 of credits...for what?...On Avangate works...are 17.849.821,50€...;)

Gabriele, have you read my post at the top of this thread yet?
http://lumion3d.com/forum/index.php?topic=1254.0

Ferry has previously mentioned that he does not want more than 10 plugin Packs in total. At the moment we offer 5 plugin Packs, but there are more to come. In the post I've just mentioned, you can read more about some of the proposed Packs (Model Pack, Sound Pack and Animation Pack).

If you have 5 plugins in total (1 free plugin Pack + 4 purchased plugin Packs) you will automatically become a Lumion Ultimate user, and any other plugin Packs that have been released at that point in time will be unlocked.

The plugin Packs will be updated with new functionality and assets, and if you have Lumion Ultimate you get those updates for free, provided that you keep upgrading Lumion (probably in December every year).

If you choose not to upgrade Lumion, you can of course still use everything you have (Lumion + plugins) for as long as you want. But in that case, you will not continue to receive the free service packs of the main Lumion program.

Does this make sense?

"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."

Thanks Morten, now I understood about credits, is a flexible way to collaborate with Lumion world.
