However, we are hoping there is a way to setup some kind of workaround where we can send the render jobs to one or several computers to render. This would allow us to work on our other graphics without having to stop productivity.
It is currently not possible to send render jobs to another PC via the interface in Lumion, so you'd have to do this the old-fashioned way, ie, by copying the Scene and Library files from PC A to PC B, loading the scene on PC B and starting the rendering procedure. Note that you'd need 2 Lumion licenses, otherwise you'd have to de-activate the license on PC A before activating it on PC B.
The Scenes and Library folders are currently hard-coded to the C: drive:
C:\Users\[username]\Documents\Lumion 2\Scenes & Library
As a workaround, some of our customers who are using Lumion on multiple PCs within a local area network have installed network sync software to ensure that the latest Lumion scenes/library files are used on all PCs:http://lumion3d.com/forum/index.php?topic=861.msg5032#msg5032
However, Lumion does not automatically detect scene/library files that have been updated via the network, so you would have to restart Lumion and reload the scene after updating the scene/library files.
