Hi [email protected]
Thanks for your interest in Lumion.
The Benchmark Report shows the PC has an i7-4810MQ CPU. As I understand, that's a CPU for laptops. Lumion requires use of a dedicated GPU.
Laptops can have both an integrated GPU - usually Intel such as an Intel HD 4600, and a dedicated GPU (NVIDIA or AMD/ATI). Does your laptop have a dedicated GPU?
If so then please see LUMION 5: Read this if you are using a laptop PC
Some laptops are capable of running Lumion, however the specifications and especially the GPU tend to be lower performance as compared to desktop PC's. Design software generally uses the capabilities of the CPU, Lumion uses the GPU for a lot of it's work.
For computer specifications see:
1. LUMION 6: System requirements
2. Passmark: Videocard Benchmarks
Web site Guide: Hardware for Lumion
. This one also includes some comments on portables/laptops.
There are two 'trial' based versions:1) Lumion Demo 5.3:
A Demo version (available from the link in 'Try
' menu above this forum), which is Save Disabled
and without MyLumion
functionality, but there's no time limit.
This is the version you show as currently in use in the screencapture.2) Lumion Pro (current version) 7-day Trial:
A fully functional 7-day Trial version of Lumion Pro 6.0.1 with the full material and model libraries, available via resellers
(generally for those interested in evaluating for purchase decisions).
