Lumion doesn't work in the background

Hi,


How come Lumion freezes when its operation window is not selected? For example, when I am exporting a movie or a still image, I will switch my window to other program to do other tasks and leave Lumion running in the background, but turn out that Lumion will just stop running unless its operation winodow is active. Is this a bug?

Thanks

That is how we eventually made it. Apparently your 3d card doesn't like it if we keep Lumion active in the background. We had it on at first but had to disable it.

 

In this post I also commented on this issue:

This is by design. One reason is the nature of the graphics cards drivers, which are generally not designed for multi-process GPU rendering in the background.
