Hi my name is Andres, i am from Paraguay. I wonder if lumion can run in my Macbook Pro 2.4 Ghz Core i5 4 gb ddr3 and has a nvidia GT 330M.

I am using Parallels Descktop with Windows 7. 

I installed with no problems but when i run it the colors looks very rare and some parts of the terrain doesnt appear.

The only thing I can think of is the drivers. But as far as we know the GT 330M should support Lumion. The fact that you are using a macbook pro shouldn't influence the use of Lumion.

The 330M is a bit slow for Lumion. I love the Mac hardware but I can't see why they always have really slow GPU's.

Hi!

I'm a new user of lumion and new in this forum so excuse me for posting as reply but I can't find the "start a new topic" link. However, I downloaded lumion 2.5 free version on my mac book air with parallels. Everything went fine with installing and opening it but when I chose a scenario for example sunny day and look around the screen is all black and in some positions it dissapears and you can see the scenario. How can I solve this?

Welcome, Kata22.

No, the AMD Radeon HD 6750M graphics card is too old to run Lumion 8. :-\

You need a graphics card with at least 2,000 PassMark points, and the AMD Radeon HD 6750M only gets 939 points.

If you try to start Lumion anyway, you will experience crashes, glitches and errors.
