About This Version

Version 1.8, 4/19/2017
Upgrading? We’ve made some great updates - but you will no longer be able to view previous Live files after upgrading to the new version. If that’s okay, go ahead and update. Otherwise, you can continue using the current version and update your app later. The choice is yours. Live now offers more control over your experience, by offering the option to choose between optimizing your scene for appearance or performance. Live also suggests a recommended optimization setting based on your hardware.

    This has been a very disappointing experience - reminding me of how it was 10-15 years ago, waiting for the software to respond for minutes - being in doubt about whether the software has stopped or it is working on something (of which we don't know). Bad - really bad.

  • Easy to use, great results!

  • Impossible to launch
    Patrick Pelletier | June 01, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    After installing the viewer, i never managed to launch it. It says it can't start correctly (0xc000007b).

  • Doesn't work!
    Michał Gaweł | February 19, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I installed it on 7 different computers with windows 8.1 and it works properly only on one of them. Instalation goes right, I am able to open LIVE Viewer but it's impossible to open any sample scene. It stays forever on "importing" or "one moment please" loading scren. Those 7 computers belongs to different people. There are no common features exept OS. This supposed to be universal and compatible tool. I don't understand why it doesn't return any informations about origin of problem

    Giuseppe Schiralli | February 22, 2017

    Hi Michal! Autodesk LIVE can take few minutes up to few hours to launch the first time, depending on how many scenes are already present. Please check in the forum for more info.

    Marcus Isacsson | May 23, 2017

    I also had this problem after updating Autodesk LIVE. As I understand it LIVE reads all the recent scenes you've had and updates them(?). There is a solution though, you have to delete temporary files from LIVE-folders on your computer before starting the program. Google which folders to wipe.

  • Great Tool
    Tobias Wiesendanger | February 08, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I use it almost every day and it is a great tool to showoff revit project. Especialy to customers that have no idea how to read a 2D drawing.

  • Just Fantastic!
    Alexis Villanueva | October 06, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I had a few problems, base of the poor instructions to make it work, but after investigating for a few days, just got it working perfectly and its really amazing, im really going for the subscription its a game changer. And works with oculus just fine!

  • Issues
    Paul Mcgeachy | September 26, 2016

    Luckily I opted for the trial before subscription. Serious performance issues and crashes. Fails to publish presentation. What is the point if this does not function?

  • Performance is woeful
    Chris Swinkels | September 12, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    After testing this software ( with a relatively small project (128MB LVMD / 206MB LIVE) with a reasonable PC, it was very disappointing to find that both the editor and viewer apps struggled to function. The idea of LIVE seems great, however the reality of its performance is evidence that there is a lot of room for improvement!
