What do you get when you buy Lumion?

When you buy Lumion, you receive a Standard or Pro version that you can keep. A single license is usable on any number of computers, by any number of people. Simultaneous use (running Lumion on multiple computers at the same time) is limited by the number of seats you buy.

Every year, you can expect one major (paid) upgrade. Otherwise, you will remain on the previous version. There are also one or two minor upgrades per year, which are free for users of the most recent version of Lumion. E.g. You bought Lumion 8. The upgrade(s) to Lumion 8.x will be free, but Lumion 9.0 will be a paid upgrade.
