buggy reflection control ?

Hi Lumion community !

I have a problem with a scene that suddenly messed up when i was trying to "shoot" an image: all reflection turns to a very hi level even on pre-defined lumion materials and now i can't go back because in build mode those buggy reflection still on my screen. I have deleted all reflection control but it's still the same. Is it a bug ? How to be back to my previous settings ?

If someone know it help me a lot. Thanks in advance

I'm running with a GTX580 3Gb. I don't think it's a hardware problem...
The worst thing is that even if loading an old "good" saved" scene (before the bug happened) it still messing the reflections and i cannot remove it: only way i found is to begin an entirely new scene and importing back again my models but i loose all my materials work  ???

Any ideas people ?

Does it happen if you do some image shots using one of the Lumion example scenes?

It unfotuneately does sound a little like there's a hardware problem, despite having a wonderful 580 3GB.  You might need to check DX settings, do a FurMark test, check NVIDIA drivers.

Are you able to get some screen shots of the some of the culprit materials showing the settings.

To avoid changing your source models and their materials I would make a duplicate first then work on the duplicate.

Hi gonzohot,

As Peter already said, a few screenshots might help us diagnose the problem.

1) Which version of Lumion are you using? (Check in Settings) If you're using an older version, please install Lumion 2.5 and let us know if the glitch is still there.

2) Are you using a recent Nvidia graphics card driver? Please run "DXdiag" in the Windows Start menu -> Click on "Save All Information", and attach the dxdiag.txt document to your next post (Click on "+ Additional Options" below the text field).

3) Are the scenes with the reflection glitch particularly complex?

4) Does the reflection glitch also appear on final renderings?
