A simple question. If Lumion works with the GPU RAM and current GPU RAM is limited to 3GB (Aaron's GPU... Most of us have far less  ::)), what's the advantage of using the 64 bit version of Lumion?

Bigger models - more polygons - more textures - longer movies - more effects

Your RAM is used when loading models and as a sort of "paging file" by your GPU.  64-bit allows you to use greater than the 3 gig limit imposed by the 32-bit program. 

Someone please correct me if I am mistaken.
