Hello!

I recently bought a laptop, hoping to learn how to use Lumion, i love it.
Here my specifications:

LAPTOP MSI GT60 20k Workstation
Processor - Intel Core i7 4700QM
RAM - 16GB 1600MHz
Integrated Graphics - Intel HD Graphics 4600
Dedicated Graphics - nVidia Quadro k3100 4GB GDDR5
OS - Windows 7 Pro x64

and after stating Lumion, here is the result:

GFX Score: Intel HD 4600 (4140) - Orang
GFX Memory: 4100 MB - Full Green
CPU Score: 1640 - Red
CPU Memory: 16272 - Full Red

i test it to render mp4 file for 20 second it takes 1 hr. and 32 min.
i guess there is something not correct..... |:(

Hi

Please check that the Quadro card is being used for Lumion.  Set in the NVIDIA Control Panel, Manage 3D Settings.

re: Laptop PC's - Integrated Intel Graphics:

Note: even though the Benchmark reports the integrated Intel graphics, that's due to a DX limitation.  So long as Lumion is being assigned for use with the Quadro, it will be using the Quadro.

Next thing is the performance rating for the Quadro, een though it's a K series, it is also for mobile, so not the same power as for desktop.  Passmark for the Quadro K3100M is 2083, so the complexity of scenes and speed in rendering is not going to be that good, please refer:

1.  LUMION 4: Minimum hardware requirements

2.  Lumion Web Site: Specifications

3.  Passmark: Videocard Benchmarks.

Lastly:
1.  What version of Lumion are you using?
2.  What are the MP4 render quality settings?

1. i used Lumion 4
2. video render quality it was 720p.

First, thanks so much for you time.
- i assigned the Quadro K3100 to run the Lumion.. in the nvidia 3d setting as high performance.
- i did a passmark software test and result as shown:


so, is the result from lumion test ok or it should be better?
the result from passmark rating software is 3818....

or i have to adjust my setting ???

thanks for your answers !!!!!!!!

Regarding to your email and information required from me... i asked my IT man to give this information about Lumion and he refused to give me any information about Lumion or any software in the laptop...

this laptop bought to me by my company just 3 days ago..

So, if you will not support me,, please just say that....

That's very unsual for IT.  ???

Please send me an email with his contact details so I can make contact, or forward my email to your IT man.  I'm sure as a corporate employee he will understand what to do.
