I think you should put this information somewhere, into your FAQ files or similar.

I tried to restore my Lumion window, while the animation creation process was still on, and when the process ended, running the created .mp4 file, shows that a sudden light flash (instant light increase) occurred at the moment when I restored the Lumion window. Everything went fine, when I got it back to full screen.

I think you should put this warning somewhere into your FAQ files: Not to restore the Lumion window, during the animation creation process, as it will result to ligh flashes, in the scene.

You're right - the exposure will be reset if you move or resize the Lumion window - or change the resolution of your monitor while Lumion is rendering.

Thank you for the reply Morten.

So by restoring the Lumion window during the animation creation process, the resolution of the animation changes, due to window shrinking?

No, the white flash is the exposure in Lumion which re-adjusts after you resize the Lumion window. The resolution of the window while you're rendering doesn't matter though; Lumion does not need a 1920x1080 window when rendering a 1080p HD video.

Understood. So restoring or maximizing the window during rendering the video, is not allowed.

Thank you for the replies.
