Long render times

Hello, I'm sorry for my English im latin from Panama. Well I made an animation in Lumion version 2.5, the animation lasts four minutes, I want to render it in 1920x1080 full HD, but the program tells me that lasted 118 hours, delayed not understand why so much? Please help me if I have to change something in the settings (final output quality?, Frame per seconds?, Estereoscopic 2D or 3D?, Background rendering?, Extra frame edge?) For the animation lasts less time.

I have an Asus Laptop, 6GB RAM, IntelCore I7, 2GB Nvidia Geforce 610m

Hi Eivan,

Unfortunately, our graphics card is not powerful enough to run Lumion. It only has 29 PassMark points and we recommend a minimum of 1,500 for simple scenes:

There's more information here:

If you used lights then use the chache option for them. it may help. but a better graphic card will help too.

Hello,

He talks about the Nvidia Geforce 610m, not the nforce 610m (which is an older chipset)

The Geforce 610m is not so bad (it's my graphic card) and has the minimal requirements : 2Gb.

Renders are a bit long but it works fine. For a long video, it may crash, so I recommand you to make several clips so you can compile them with an external video software.

The real problem is not the render time, but the Kernel mode that crashes when I try to render a better than 720p picture. I haven't found the solution yet but I hope Lumion 3 will be more compatible...or even a nvidia update (Hope makes me live !)

Eivan, Lumion funciona mejor con una tarjeta gráfica de escritorio de alto nivel, como la GTX 670 o 680.

También puedes hacer esto: Activa el caché en las luces y el "modo de baja memoria" para mejorar tus tiempos de render.

Could I change the video card in my laptop?

Podre cambiar la tarjeta de video de mi laptop?

not on the ASUS X53 which is yours I think.
Can only change graphic cards on MXM compatible laptops (which are very expensive)

like me unfortunatly... So you can hope like me that lumion will use the powerfull i7-2670QM processor...  ;)

Hi morgenstein, thanks for clarifying what he meant.

I can't find the 610M on the PassMark site, but there's a non-Mobile version of it (which usually is more powerful), and even this card only gets 350 PassMark points - which is way below the minimum requirement of 1,500 PassMark points that we recommend for simple scenes in Lumion:
http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/gpu.php?gpu=GeForce+GT+610&id=33

In other words, yours and Eivan's 610Ms unfortunately don't meet the minimum requirement for Lumion, despite the 2GB onboard memory. This is why you're experiencing kernel errors when you try to render higher resolution images/videos.

It's a pity... Lumion can't run on any laptop (despite it's recent) and I like to practise on my sofa  :-P. The i7 core is not so usefull. Bad choice !

Well, the most important component for Lumion (and any other GPU renderer) is the graphics card.

If you pick a laptop that has a graphics card with a decent PassMark score, you will be able to use it for Lumion.
