Lumion Free 2 should be able to load projects from Lumion Free 1, but the sky has been overhauled, so you might need to adjust the Weather settings.

However, you won't be able to load Lumion Free projects in Lumion Basic/Ultimate, regardless of the version number.
___________________________

Library file contents

Model.lib: The original imported model data including all materials and textures (so that you can always revert to the original by deleting any materials that you may have applied in Lumion).

Model.lib.inn: The thumbnail image for the object in the model browser window. To update a thumbnail image, select the object in the model browser window, place it in the scene, adjust the camera and select the object using CTRL + left-mouse button + rectangular selection. Then press CTRL and left-click on the thumbnail image to update it.

Model.lib.mtt: This slider values etc for the Lumion materials that you have applied to your model.

Model.lib.txx: Any textures that you may have applied to your Custom/Lightmap materials.

This file structure ensures that each model won't require any external files.

Lumion Basic/Ultimate will crash (on purpose) if you try to load a scene made with Lumion Free.

The reason they have implemented this is to avoid situations where a company can use multiple Lumion Free installations to create projects, and then render the final movies/images with a single (legit) Lumion Basic/Ultimate license.

You're obviously not in that category, so if this issue is holding you back from purchasing Lumion Basic/Ultimate, please contact Arthur via email (info [at] act-3d.com).

Transfer of projects from Lumion Free to Lumion Commercial is not possible.

In case of emergency we can do that manually for Eur. 100.-- per project.

Yes, Lumion Free 2 should be similar to Lumion Free 1 in this regard.

The buildings were only used for promotional purposes, and are currently not included in any version of Lumion.
