Lumion Student Version graphics on iMac

On behalf of an Educational User:

I just installed lumion 5.7.2 and it all went well until I opened it. The colors did not transfer right. It is all red, sometimes white or really dark. I tried to render and see if it turned out ok, but unfortunately not.

The computer is an iMac, with the intel iris pro graphics 5200
I installed a 64 bit windows 7 via bootcamp and have been using rhino, autocad, allplan and the complete adobe spectrum without problems. Is there anything we could do to fix this?

Hi Felicitas

Running Bootcamp for Windows for an IMac is the right thing to do.  However, Lumion requires a dedicated graphics card such as an NVIDIA GTX or Quadro, or ATI/AMD Radeon card in the system.

Does the iMac have a dedicated card?

Lumion will not run on integrated graphics such as the Intel Iris.

Refer further:
1.  LUMION 5: Minimum hardware requirements.

2.  Lumion Web Site: Specifications.

If you are not sure about the iMac specifications and card, then run the Lumion DXDiag Report (in Lumion: Files -> Chart Summary -> Run DXDiag and wait for the report to be produced, a Windows File Open dialogue will appear).

Attach to a post your DXDiag Report for us to review.
