What is your computer?
When you start a render, it tkas few seconds to calculate the render time -> at the begginning, lumion show a wrong time, wait few second/minutes to see the right time it'll take

Seems your graphics card that you mention as Nvidia 9400 GT is only 213 which is generally way, way below minimum benchmark (http://lumion3d.com/forum/f-a-q/lumion-2-minimum-hardware-requirements/) required of 1500 to run Lumion.

You may be able to build and render but it would then heavily depend on the scene contents and settings for image or video render.

See FAQ tips LUMION 2: How to reduce render times (http://lumion3d.com/forum/f-a-q/how-to-reduce-render-times-in-lumion/) for some possible ideas to assist, however you would need to look to upgradng your GPU even though your CPU is an i7.

Seems slightly unusual to have what could be considered quite an old GPU make for a modern i7 CPU, as the 9400 has been around since probably before 2008.

Of course if lordbibo renders it for you then problem solved, at least for your current render requirement.

You should know that Lumion is a GPU based software...

So, a lot of the effort of the render is taken by the Graphic Card... Your card is a quite old one...
I think this is why...

At your disposal if you need more clarifications..
