HI
Ive got Lumion free installed on my laptop (with windows 7, nvidia GEforce GT 630M). Once I open up the program, when trying to select my initial starting scene the laptop goes nuts, and says that the system graphics drivers crashed and then recovered.

Is this a problem with the conflicting graphics drivers? Help would be groovy..

-i am looking to buy lumion.... but i would like to know whether i can put background music in my walkthroughs in lumion itself or not?? and what difference does having "Output for post-processor and compositing software" make .... as i am interested in buying lumion standard which costs 1499 euros. and lumion standard does not have that feature.
does that mean that with this feature i will get an uncompressed output which i can compose and compress later in other software???
-what if i buy the standard version which does not have the above mentioned feature and i open the clip into another compositing software for adding credentials and background music.... will it affect the resolution or the quality of my clip??  
- can i get a tga. sequence in lumion standard???
- if i buy lumion standard and if i look to upgrade my standard version of lumion which costs 1499 euros. like with in a month or anytime this year.... is it possible? if yes!! how much will it cost me?
- I use a 64 bit system windows 7 ultimate is it fine?

Hi Rohn, no, currently there is no option to add background music (or any sound) inside Lumion. Something like that has been mentioned as a possible (future) feature but also was mentioned that some licensing issues had to be solved first.

As for "Output for post-processor and compositing software": it is output of alpha masks, depth masks and similar (I cannot show as I do not have pro) which are usually used in image editing software for layers and similar. Mostly not for video output but probably they could also be used for that.

Any editing and re-saving usually affects quality a bit. But if you do not keep resaving and then using that material for editing again and resaving again (i.e only use the first, raw output), most modern video editors (around the $99 range) will do a decent job and you will not lose quality visibly.

Yes, you can export movies as image sequences (among others, tga is also available) so if you are in doubt of quality loss of already encoded videos when editing, use this method.

Upgrading is possible (although I certainly cannot advise on the price any time now or in the future).

And yes, Win 7 64 bit is fine. The more important factor is your video card as Lumion is GPU based. Here is a comparison chart of them listed by performance: http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/high_end_gpus.html

Your card does not support the software, upgrade your graphics card driver.Or update to the professional graphics card

Hi mikeymike, have you checked if your laptop uses Optimus technology?

Just installed Lumion 2.2.1 really like the way the trees are grouped in different size categories. The terrain brushes are still no smaller that 3m, which is great for creating vast landscapes for gaming, but not much good for architecture, making paths with soft edges etc. Great selection of objects, but they really should come as a group, for example not separate Knife, Fork Spoon Plate, glass, but as a complete dining group, you try setting a table for 8 with this method.
Also need for a group of table and chairs, not separate elements. It would be even better if Lumion could group objects. Apart for a few niggles Lumion remains for me a product that is way ahead of the field in terms of speed and usability.

You can use photos or clips, or any part of the timeline, or the photos of a clip to jump to anywhere in a scene.

Shift key for fast navigation as well as the Fast Editor Camera in settings to speed navigaiton.

tnx bro
