Exporting Video animation not working?

Hello there,

I setup my video to export on Friday and it originally said 4.5 hours left, however when I came in this morning it said 139,000 hours remaining!  Now it dropped back down to 4h43m left.

Any idea why this didn't export?

Thanks,
Lorne

Lumion can only render if the Lumion window is active, so perhaps your screensaver or the energy saving features in Windows paused the rendering process?

That could be it.  Perhaps that's why this morning it hasn't moved from 4h43m!

So should I just have my display go to sleep overnight and turn off screensaver and power saving mode?

Thanks Morten.

Yes, although there could of course be something else which interrupts the rendering process.

Yeah, it's probably best to stick around for a few minutes, until you're sure that it won't be interrupted by other Windows processes :)

Also make sure you turn off any Windows Updates (if you allow them), otherwise you could end up having the system rebooted during a render and loose everything (and think it was Lumion crashing  ::) ).
