Anyone can create architectural movies in minutes., EXCEPT ME!

Anyone
else have this problem which is driving me crazy, I can not even take a
picture more than the email without the screen off giving the error
"display driver stopped respoder ..." From Lumion Staff said that is possibly that the first updated salventar, but I have no access to it as because I am with the non-commercial version.
If someone had occurred and was resolved, please post how to do it.

I have the Nvidia GeForce 9600 GT, windows 7 64 bit.

I attached 2 images, the first one is in 1280 x 720 px and has no problem, but as much size after shut down the screen the image resoults is the 02.jpg.

Thank you very much.

The reason is that your 3d card has 512 mb of memory. The update we created and will release later will reduce the memory need but for large scenes a 1GB card is still needed!

Thank you, thank you.

I'm going to buy it now, please recommend one.
I have an Intel Core Duo 2.93 Ghz

It depends on your amount to spend of course. 

 

Starting with the best you can get:

 

580 GTX  +- 500 euro 1.5 gb    rating 1.0

480 GTX +- 400 euro 1.2 gb     rating 0.9

470 GTX +- 200 euro 1 gb        rating 0.75

460 GTX +- 180 euro 1 gb        rating 0.6

 

This is not actual Lumion figures for all different scenes you can create but just a rough estimate. I am only showing NVIDIA cards here but of course a similiar statistic can be made for radeon cards.

 

Remember that for models with loads of materials/surfaces a fast CPU helps a lot!

MADRE MIA!!

First of all, Thank you!

I have the wrong idea that the Geforce 9600 are best that Lumion recommended GF 8800.

But it seems that Nvidia is the world upside down.

I think about it.

One more time Ferry, thank you.

My video card is Geforce GT 9400 … It gives a lot of trouble.

 I'm looking to buy "Radeon ATI HD 5870 1024 MB DDR5" or  "GeForce GTX460 1GB DDR5" … What works best in Lumion?

Well the GTX 460 seems to be much cheaper. And I think the GTX 460 is not that much worse.

 

There are always situations where the ATI might win but in most computers at work we have a NVIDIA. I developed Lumion on a 260 GTX. The system we created the movies on was a 5970. But I think our 480 GTX worked a bit better with Lumion.

 

We didn't test the latest ATI cards yet but for now price performance I would say pick a 470 or 460 GTX.

 

If you want to have the fastest card possible get a 580 GTX with a fast i7 processor. This is also faster then a Quadro card!

Here in Rio de Janeiro the difference in price of GTX460 and ATI HD 5870 is too little. (R$ 220,00 – about € 95,00)

The video cards (GTX 580 and GTX 480)

Are slightly more expensive than I could afford. Almost twice the price of ATI 5870.

And the 470 GTX? Still if the 460 GTX is 100 euro less I would go for that one.

The GTX 470 costs 45 euros more than the ATI 5870.

It makes little difference. I could buy.

 The GTX 470 is better than the ATI 5870?

http://www.alternate.es/html/p.....eForce+GTX

 

This link show the Palit GeForce GTX460 Sonic of 2048 Mb (187,90 €), please tell me if this one could be good for Lumion.

What
surprises me is that being 460 has installed more memory capacity than a
 580, sure I'm wrong, but compare the same list with the Point of View
GeForce GTX 580 BEAST
(829 €). If anyone understands this, and can explain in detail would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Much cheaper than in Brazil hehehe.

 A friend just told me that the amount of memory doesn't mean that the board is better. The real capacity is measured by "Memory Bandwidth" … The bigger the better.

 He explained that the ATI 5870 is better than the GTX 470.

 ATI 5870> Memory Bandwidth: 153.6 GB / s

 GTX 470> Memory Bandwidth: 134GB / s

-----

GTX 580 > Memory Bandwidth: 192 GB / s 

GTX 460 Sonic 2048MB > Memory Bandwidth: 115.2GB/sec

 

I just have to confirm it with other people to see if it is correct.

It is not only memory bandwidth. Also texture fillrate and vertex pushing. We notice smoother Lumion on our nvidia cards.

 

I would really like the 2 gb version of the 460 gtx. the reason is that in Lumion you can KEEP adding content! So while a normal game limits its content to 512 mb or 1 gb in Lumion you are free to keep adding textures and vertexes. So that 2 gb is going to help you a lot in rendering out a massive scene. 

 

460 GTX texture fillrate : 37.8

480 GTX texture fillrate : 42

580 GTX texture fillrate : 49.4

 

460 GTX cores : 336

480 GTX cores : 480

580 GTX cores : 512

 

Those cores are going to help a lot in pushing a 25.000.000 vertex scene. We tried that last week. It will render the shadow also so it needs to render 50.000.000 vertexes! On our 480 GTX that was still 40 fps. The memory on the 580 GTX is probably faster and more expensive. Which is the reason for less memory.

 

Of course the 580 GTX is the best but a 460 GTX with 2 gb of memory is also really great for Lumion.

Of course the Quadro 6000 is great.
