Render in Background?

Is there a setting i can select, that allows me to work on other things while Lumion renders video in background or on another screen?  Everytime i divert away from or click off of the Lumion screen to... Autocad, Sketchup, Outlook etc. The rendering stops.  Once i click back onto Lumion the rendering starts again.  It would be great if i could utalize the 8+ hours a day that i am working on other things to have Lumion working in the background.

thanks,

Unfortunately not, Lumion uses the graphics card to such an extent that if they enabled background rendering everything else in Windows would grind to a halt.

I personally render quick 640x360 videos in the daytime to test that everything is ok and then let it render the final full HD 3-star video after work.

Thanks Morten, that makes sense.
