[Answered] BEST MONITOR FOR LUMION

Hi Morton,

The thing is i have recently assembled a system with specs. as follows
 1. Intel i7 8700k
 2. 16 GB DDR 4
 3. SSD 512 GB M2
 4. GRAPHIC CARD : YET TO BE PURCHASED)(MOST PROBABLY NVIDIA QUADRO P2000)

My question to you is, which type of refresh rate is most suited for Lumion 8 in monitors should I go for 60Hz refresh rate monitor or 120Hz refresh rate monitor and frankly speaking, monitors with refresh rate of 120Hz are quite expensive as compared to 60Hz refresh rate monitors and i dont really have much budget left for monitor, so if 60Hz refresh rate monitors will perform well for Lumion 8 it would be a big relief,  please help me out on this A.S.A.P.

Respectfully,

RONAK MOONDRA

Hi Ronak, theoretically speaking, 60Hz would require a minimum framerate of 60 frames per second while editing scenes in Lumion, whereas 120Hz would require a minimum framerate of 120 frames per second.

In practice, the framerate in Lumion is significantly lower than that once you start to add models to your scenes, so the Hz parameter is irrelevant for Lumion.

Which version of Lumion are you using?

Either is fine and won't affect your work in Lumion.

You should only buy a 120 Hz monitor if you regularly use other applications (or 3D games) that run at a minimum of 120 frames per second.

Hello Morten,

I have one more question for you....is Lumion8 4k monitor compatible?
If yes, should i go for a normal HD monitor or a 4k monitor, if your answer is 4k monitor then how much of a difference will i see in viewing as well a presentation experience while using a 4k monitor while comparing it with a normal HD(1080p) monitor?

Respectfully

Lumion is compatible with 4K monitors.

However, the monitor resolution (i.e. the number of pixels) has a significant impact on performance. For example, on a 3840x2160 monitor, the graphics card has to render four times as many pixels as on a 1920x1080 monitor, so even a GTX 1080 Ti graphics card can sometimes struggle when running 3D games, flight simulators etc at max settings in 4K resolution.

In other words: the rule of thumb is that the lower the resolution is, the better the performance will be in 3D applications such as Lumion.

If you do buy a 4K resolution monitor,  it's not the end of the world though.

You can either lower the resolution, e.g. from 4K (3860x2160) to 1929x1080.

Or you can 'simulate' a lower resolution without having to change your monitor resolution by using the 'Editor Resolution' toggle buttons on the Settings screen in Lumion.

Both options will result in better performance while editing scenes in Lumion.

Dear Morten,

I am new to this forum, but i would appreciate a help.
Got a question. I want to buy my sister a good monitor. She has been using Lumion for a long time.
Concidering this post, i see that 4K monitors are a bit inconvenient to use with Lumion, so i will go with Full HD 1920x1080p. Can You please, from Your experience, propose me some good monitors that are generally going well for 3D rendering and Lumion itself (including the inches, refresh rate, brand and technology)?
If anyone else see this post, i would like to know Your experience too.
The price should go up to 400-450 €.

I have a DELL S2415H, and it is a very nice monitor, to be honest. Concidering price/quality (i also adore that it has glossy screen, it is so classy :) ).
The monitor that i was thinking to buy her is for example:
DELL LED 23.8" UltraSharp U2414H IPS Full HD 23.8, IPS, 1920 x 1080 Full HD, 8ms.

I am looking forward to Your reply, and thanks in advance! :P

Kind regards,
Vladimir

Hi Vladimir, the Dell U2414H is quite old.

Did you mean the U2417H?

Either way, both monitors are fine, both for Lumion and for general use.

Dear Morten,

Thank You very much. I will concider the one You proposed to me. I am from Serbia, and the new monitors here are too expensive, so we wait for the new monitors to come, because they are lowering the price of the older monitors. :/
Thanks again!

Kind regards,
Vladimir

You're welcome (on behalf of Morten).  :)

Note that any good quality monitor will do.  Lumion does not have any specification or requirement for any specific brand, model or type of monitor. 

But we obviously suggest one that has good color, suits the size for the work environment and good quality parts.  And, supports 1080p screen resolution but can go higher up to 4K.  Except we recommend not using 4K for Lumion (use 1080p for optimal FPS), but only for other applications or playing photos or videos that need those higher resolutions.

You should only buy a 120 Hz monitor if you regularly use other applications (or 3D games) that run at a minimum of 120 frames per second.

120Hz are quite expensive as compared to 60Hz refresh rate monitors but its good.You should go for it/
