Title: ERROR RENDERING DrawIndexedPrimitive
Post by: cl-apps on January 23, 2013, 04:28:47 pm
I'm not sure if i'm on my own with this one as I have just purchased 3.0.2 of Lumion and running it inside Parallels on the Mac but on the scene with the palms trees and beach I get a random box pop up with "ERROR RENDERING DrawIndexedPrimitive" which if you press OK goes away but then comes back. The other scenes don't suffer from this.

Is this a Parallels issue? In which case I'll try running in bootcamp or is there something I can do if someone has seen the error before?

Just like to say this is not a crash but an error box which wont go away once it pops up.

Other than that everything is working fine :)

Thanks!

Hi Chris, I already mentioned that you shouldn't try to run Lumion in OSX Parallels ;)

Hi Chris, please use Boot Camp and a dedicated Windows installation if you want to use Lumion. We are unable to provide support if you're using Parallels (or any other virtual machine software for OSX) as it is notorious for messing up the functionality in Lumion.

I know, i know... I like to disobey :)

I guess this is just an error with Parallels. Not to worry as long as I know.

Cheers!

Hehe fair enough :-D

Maybe I should read this (http://www.amazon.co.uk/product-reviews/0230712215/ref=dp_top_cm_cr_acr_txt?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1) and not worry about OSX experiments going horribly wrong (http://ramblelust.files.wordpress.com/2011/04/121809_rg_brokenscreen_01.jpg).

Haha! Looks like it got a good star rating :)

Just did a bootcamp install and I have to say I was impressed before but now i'm blown away by Lumion 3!! Amazing! The viewport is now max everything and with a mouse attached to the MacBook Pro the viewport just glides around like butter!

The silly error has gone too so no problems here at all!

For others viewing the specs are:

15-inch with Retina display
2.6GHz quad-core Intel Core i7
Turbo Boost up to 3.6GHz
16GB 1600MHz memory
NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M with 1GB of GDDR5 memory

Sounds great, I'm tempted to upgrade my own MacBook Pro too! :P
