for small projects, I have no problem.

but when I work on large surfaces and I integrate many objects in lumion, my pc works in slow motion.

Then when I put the camera high in the sky to see all of my project, I can not see the trees, water and more objets.

Hi, we have all graphic cards related above and after tested hardly, GTX 580 is the best one for lumion, we use a Gainward GTX 580 Phantom 3Gb.

For Acad and Sketchup Quadro cards are more accurate, we use Quadro 4000 2Gb and Quadro 5000N 2Gb.

I have some projects on sketchup with a weight of 450mo

is that the gtx 580 will cause problems in sketchup for this type of file?  :-\

The Quadro 4000 card is a bit slow if you're working with very detailed scenes in Lumion. Compare the PassMark score with the GTX 580 to see what you're missing out on :)
http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/gpu.php?gpu=Quadro+4000

There's more information about graphics card requirements in this thread:
http://lumion3d.com/forum/index.php?topic=2548.0

If you want to keep your Quadro 4000, there's a number of things you can do to get achieve better performance in Lumion:

1) Use Layers: Familiarise yourself with the Layer functionality in Lumion, so that you can show/hide models. There's more information about this in the Tips, Tricks and Shortcuts thread:
http://lumion3d.com/forum/index.php?topic=2548.0

2) Editor quality: Set the Editor quality to 1 star while you're editing scenes. This function is available in the Settings menu, or you can press F1/F2/F3/F4 for 1/2/3/4 star quality.

3) Editor resolution: Use a smaller window for Lumion or change the resolution in Settings -> 75%/50%/25%.

About the disappearing objects you mentioned, trees and plants will disappear in the distance in Build mode, but this is on purpose to reduce their performance impact. You can however display all trees/plants in your scene at their highest level of detail if you press F9. This is also explained in the Tips, Tricks and Shortcuts thread:
http://lumion3d.com/forum/index.php?topic=2759.0

To prevent the other objects from flickering/disappearing when you move the camera far away, add Scene Effects -> Camera Clip Planes effect to the clip, and adjust the Near plane slider until the flickering is gone. You can also animate the Near plane if necessary by clicking on the small circular button to the right of the slider to set a keyframe.

Thank you for the information Morten  ;)

I already use layers on large projects.

I will test the resolution editor ...... and the effect of camera

Change the graphics card is not a problem for me but I would really like to know if the gtx580 1.5GB runs well on sketchup (file 350/450mo) and that I can not find on google.

Yes, it's definitely best to test it beforehand.

Perhaps one of the guys with a GTX 580 could test your scene in SketchUp (bearing in mind that differences in system RAM/CPU etc will influence the result)?
