Hi everyone! Maybe my question is a bit silly.. Im planning to acquire the last version of the program, but first I want to run the benchmark test of Lumion in my computer to know exactly which is the performance I can reach... the problem is that I don't find the link to download the little program in the official site because the website is empty (https://www.lumion.es/lumion-benchmark). |:(
Can somebody please bring me some link to download it or a way to get it?
Thanks in advance!!  :D

Hi Steffasd, welcome to the Lumion Support Center! :)

The benchmark application is outdated and was removed a long time ago.

Please install either Lumion 5.3 Demo or the 7-day trial version of Lumion 7.0.1 Pro (instructions here).

Hi Morten! Thank you so much for the quick answer! what a pity that the  application is disabled  :-\ . I'll do what you say but first let me ask you what do you think about my computer to run the Lumion, it is an Intel i7 4790, with a GTX 970 4gb, a SSD (125gb) and a 2TB hard disk.
Is that enough to run the program or I'll be a bit complicated?

Again...thanks!

Hello again, the GTX 970 is a good graphics card for Lumion, and the SSD and harddrive are fine (assuming they're not full :)).

1) How much system memory does your PC have? 16 GB?

2) What's the CPU speed?

Yup, that should be fine - the graphics card will let you work on moderately complex scenes in Lumion.

Hello,

We are having an issue with the speed at which Lumion creates a fly-through and it crashes sometimes. I attached an image of our benchmark and I believe that we need to get a better graphics card. What has worked best with Lumion?

Hi TPP CADguy, welcome to the Lumion Support Center.

The Nvidia Quadro K4000 graphics card gets 2,841 PassMark points.

The minimum requirement for simple Lumion scenes is 2,000 points. The next step up is 6,000 points for moderately complex Lumion scenes. Click here to see the full list.

As you've found out the hard way, a slow graphics card will have a significant impact on render times.

We provide recommendations on which graphics cards to pick (based on the complexity of the scenes you expect to be working on), as well as recommendations on other PC components in these Knowledge Base articles.

Please note that it is not always simply a matter of buying a new graphics card.

If the PC has a slow CPU and/or an inadequate power supply, you may experience subpar performance in Lumion and the power supply might not be suitable for the graphics card you picked.

For that reason, I'd recommend that you have a look at the Knowledge Base articles above, and let us know what you have in mind (based on your budget, your project requirements and any other constraints).

Now, regarding the crashes you're experiencing, I'm guessing you're running Lumion 5.3 Demo on Windows 10?

If so, please note that this version is 2 years old and cannot use more than 4 GB memory (regardless of how much is available) on Windows 10. Exceeding 4 GB memory will make Lumion crash. This limitation does not apply to Lumion 6.5 (and newer versions of Lumion).

For that reason, I would recommend that you click here and follow the instructions to get access to our 7-day fully functional trial version of Lumion 7.0.1 Pro. Please note that this version requires that the latest graphics card driver and all available Windows updates are installed.

Let us know if we can assist with anything else.
