Hi

Lumion requires use of a dedicated GPU.

Laptops can have both an integrated GPU - usually Intel such as an Intel HD 4000, and a dedicated GPU (NVIDIA or AMD/ATI).

Please see this topic (http://forum.lumion3d.com/f-a-q/crashdriver-crashblue-screen'not-the-same'-error-on-laptop-pcs/) to set the correct GPU.


The NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M only has a Passmark (http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/gpu_list.php) of 742.

Refer further:

2.  Lumion Web Site: Specifications (http://lumion3d.com/specs/).

3.  Passmark: Videocard Benchmarks (http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/high_end_gpus.html).

Which version of Lumion did you use to get the Benchmark result?
