    This is working version of Lumion 8...But, and a big But....it uses an emergency code for activation that lasts one session only. However, you can use this code for ever.

    Here is a complete step by step :
    1. Prevent Lumion from connecting to Internet (Firewall is the best method as you'll need Lumion to stay this way for ever with this method)
    2. Launch Lumion
    3. Launch the generator
    4. Click on the bottom right button in the generator and paste the Lumion code in it (Lumion code is the code showing in the first box of the Lumion activation windows)
    5. Save the txt file as the generator ask you to do
    6. Open the txt file and copy everything from the second line (included) until the last line before "SerialNumber" is written
    7. Paste this in the activation box of Lumion and the benchmark then the program will launch

    I've just rendered a scene and everything works fine for now.

    But there are two caveats with this method :
    You will need to force close the program in order to exit it (with the task manager)
    You will always need to paste the code at every start of the software (the benchmark run only once)

    Anyone who has problems loading in DWG mode just install the plugin from h**ps://lumion.com/dwg-loader.html

    Thanks to Glaude for step by step & pokoon & nikit75 for links :~}

    Needless to say.....Block Lumion 8 in your Firewall.

    Torrent is fine here with a shitty connection, just check your client config or update the tracker.

    Awesome thanks !
    Working for me at one strange behavior exception: cursor and scene start automaticly to look down until it reach bottom. I can "move" with mouse+right click but as soon as i release that do it again.
    Any ideas ?

    here it is, but before you judge plz note am just a hobbyist i render for fun thats all and i have a very old pc.
    this scene i converted from UE4 to lumion8. PS: i only know lumion8 since yesterday and its very easy to use, you can have the same qaulity in realtime just like UE4

    Oh nice! The same quality as UE4!
    I haven't tried both, but anyway I think UE4 is absolutely hard to use and more avdanced and gives you tons of options for your visuals.
    But on Lumion 8 trailers and teasers on YT, it looks really cool and professional, I will give a try as soon as possible.
    But "why not both?" :D
    Thanks man

    UE4 is indeed hard for archviz rendering as you need to make some tricks with lighting to have such area shadows etc! while in lumion 8 you just need to play with FX like skylight and global illumination and baam you are good to go.

    Now i may use UE4 just to steal some made project and send them to lumion 8.

    Unbelievable results after my post production on the scenes that came up with Lumion.

    those indirect area shadows are looking sexy :p
    its really hard to have them in ue4 or unity 3D.

    UE4 or Unreal Engine 4
    https://www.unrealengine.com/en-US/what-is-unreal-engine-4

    Unity 5
    https://unity3d.com/unity

    They are not render engine, they are games engines, that quite a few Architectural companies / studios / Freelancers have been using for Arch Viz. Not sure what formats Archicad can export but if you can export a format Unreal or Unity can read, then you can use them, but as I way they are not render engines. Lumion 8 was designed for Archviz but uses a real time game type engine, very much like the not so capable (YET) Twinmotion (which uses the unreal engine)

    A bonus for Lumion, is it's ability to import MAX files, however textures would need to be standard ones, which is a shame.. Would be fantastic if it could read and convert Vray materials :)

    Hopefully that clears up your confusion
