guys, ive been wondering...
i have questions right now...

first..
im using
- CORE2duo processor
- 2Gb memory
- Geforce 8800GTS
- Windows XP 32bit

but i cant save to an image..when i export an image, the visualitation comes to a bright blue color...
 and finally the program closed by himself...

The GF8800 is a real minimum for using Lumion.
If you use the demo version, its normal not all materials are included.
If you are talking about the material editing, the panel changed over the 3 main releases

though it is minimum, but it still work for saving to an image right?

I'm not sure if your graphics card has enough ram, so you may also want to turn "Low memory mode" on in the "Settings" menu in Lumion.

finally i made it...
i was using the best quality (the F4 button), but when i changed to F3 button, i can finally save to an image...

but still, im so confused with my computer spesification...
i would like to change the entire spesification, or only some part....

if you guys have some better suggestion?

anyway my computer specs is:

-CORE2DUO E4600 @2.40GHz
-2Gb memory
-Geforce 8600GT (sorry i made some mistake, my spec is below minimum requierments)

Get 4 Gigs of Ram at least/ If you can go 8gb go 8gb / If you can go 16gb go 16gb  - you will use it as you get deeper into Lumion.
I use an GTX460 Card - wonderful so far.

64-bit is better so you can use all the extra ram.
