right on...i have lightened the scene a bit. thanks.
How many lights?
about 87 right now
- some spot, some omni
performance has been fine. it does seem to take a bit longer to produce the highest quality animations that i like to do but i have been doing 1280x720 tests of those short clips around an hour or so i wanna say??? i should have paid attention.
i am using this ORIGIN PC:
taken from this discussion:http://lumion3d.com/forum/index.php?topic=1479.0
Researched custom build shops like ava, alienware, falcon northwest, cyberpower, etc.
ended up choosing ORIGIN PC based on the reviews i found. They are a newer company that formed from 3 ex-Alienware execs.
We were getting down to crunch time and none of us here are hardware gurus but i think this will meet our needs for LUMION.
very good sales experience with ORIGIN PC. very helpful. sounds good so far...
i went with the 3gb gtx 580 graphics card because it is the most powerful single core card right now and LUMION only uses one core...or something like that as mentioned above
let me know if u know anything different though. please feel free to scrutinize. i really enjoy learning the details when i can.
8-10 days to build, 4 days to ship from florida.
