I created a small video (about 30 seconds) and when I save to 720p mp4 video, it sits at the first frame and says it'll be done in an hour. It says it took 3 seconds for the first frame, but does not advance to the next.... or if it does, it doesn't show it. The mouse pointer also moves very slowly. I went away from Lumion and came back about twn minutes later to see it was still sitting on the first frame. It said 0 hours and minutes remaining with 0 seconds, so I clicked and it jumped ahead a few frames. (I just clicked on the white bar under the picture.) When it went ahead, it then said 83 seconds and remaing time was 34 hours... WHAT!? That CAN'T be right. I think that was a miscalculation as it jumped ahead a few minutes later, but while rendering, the program seems somewhat unstable as it makes things very jerky. Are we not suppose to do anything else on the computer while it is rendering?
Has anyone else had this happen?
What other things is it doing if it's all in realtime anyway?
win7 Home 64 bit
Intel Q6600 2.4 GHz
4 gigs of Ram
NVidia GTX 260
If anyone could help, that'd be great.
EDIT: Just tabbed back over and now it says 75 hours of time remaing with 162 seconds...
I remember using the old demo of version 1 and although the mouse pointer would hang, it never did anything like this... I hope this finishes by morning.
