lighting software AGI32 vs. Dialux

I'm trying to find a lighting software to do photometric plans. Downloaded Dialux and the trial version of AGI32. It seems to me that Dialux can meet most of our needs, except that it can not import 3D faces build in LDD. However, when I tried to import a road surface build in LDD to AGI32 and put calculation grids on it, it crashes the software everytime I try. My question is how many people really using the accurate surface in lighting design? or they just build a simple one in the lighting software itself? or most people simply ignore the grade change throughout the site? I'm using the lighting software on mainly exterior lighting design. Any suggestions which software to choose?

I use AutoLux. I do all my lighting
calcs right from the comfort of the AutoCAD/LDT or C3D UI.

 

It's fast, cheap, reliable &
flexible.
