No commands on lumion

Hi all,
I'm new to lumion and I've just downloaded the free version. I am using a 32 bit PC which I know isn't ideal. I have changed the Editor Quality to medium and the Editor Resolution to 50% to make it faster. But when I open a scene I have no commands so I can't import a model or even insert any objects. All I can do is move the camera around the scene.
Does anyone know how I can get these commands?

Thanks

Hi

Sounds possibly like a problem with the Windows desktop resolution.

What is your Windows Screen Resolution?  Is Windows running in 24 bit color or better?

The changes in Editor settings should still let you see the GUI menus on the right side. And, on the left should be the four main tools for weather etc.

Can you provide a screencapture of what you are seeing.

What you have is the Lumion Viewer which does not have any commands, as it's for clients to view scenes in walk-through or fly-through mode just using the mouse and navigation keys, and Enter key for pre-made animations.

So its not the Free version.  Not quite sure I understand how you came to download it, as it's provided only by Pro users to their clients.  Please PM me the source of the download.

The Free version is found at the link top of forum page menu's, ie http://lumion3d.com/free/

I've got a fiber connection at 20 Mbps download, which puts a 4 gig download just over 20 minutes. And I live in the middle of nowhere. With a more substantial fiber connection, I don't think downloading the 4 gigs would be a problem. Installing it might be another issue though. I've never timed the Lumion installer.

Try changing your screen resolution down a level or two.

The GUI should be there. What version of Windows?

It may be possible that your PC specs are causing GUI problems, but generally not aware of such until larger scenes are built, not from scratch in running Lumion.

What are your PC specs?

Refer further:
1.  LUMION 3: Minimum hardware requirements

2.  Lumion Web Site: Specifications

3.  Passmark: Videocard Benchmarks.

Would still be interested to know where the Viewer version is from (no tell tales), just want to check as it's a matter of version control and trying to support things out there in cyberland.  ;)
