setting up a single "render farm" machine for Lumion

I am looking for a way to be able to work on a project in Lumion software on my main workstation, then once I am ready to run the animation, close the software, open it on a seperate machine, move the licence dongle if needed, open the project on a seperate workstation and render.  This way I can then use my main work station to get other work done in 3ds max or photoshop while my movie is rendering on a sepereate machine with a good grahics card.   Is this possible? Sorry if this has already been discussed. I could not find any info in past threads.

thanks.

yes the dongle works over the network. So when you close your Lumion on your main machine you can start Lumion on your second machine and render. Make sure your second machine has a good 3d card.

What about the project file, do I just copy the .sva and.spr file into my documents/lumion/scenes on that render farm machine?
