...How could get the best result using Lumion and reduce time rendering ..
Getting the best and fastest system and GPU will always help of course but not ncessarily get massive gains.
If the company can afford it, there is of course another way to massively reduce your rendering time, in half or more. It's still a work around to having a batch master-slave rendering system and of course costs but that depends on what upgrade route you need to take with existing equipment and reosurces.
Get a second or more PC (start your own little render farm
). Once the final version is ready, copy the files across to the other PC, render half the clips in one and the other half in the other. Has to be by clip although I guess it could also be feasible to actually split the render scene into clip sequences for each machine. A bit of mucking around. Would be nice in Lumion to have a clip rendering sequence specifier so you can say render me just clips x to y.
Of course you will also need further Lumion licenses but if render time is money then perhaps this somewhat silly
option is viable. One or two jobs could pay for the additionals, maybe.
