We would be grateful for some feedback from those of you who are able to render image sequences and MP4 videos in Lumion without flickering or other strange artifacts such as pink/green frames or black "holes" in the sky.

The goal is to identify graphics cards and driver combinations that work, so please only add your posts below if your image sequences and MP4 videos are without artifacts.

We will need the following details:

1) Lumion version
2) Graphics card brand/version and memory capacity
3) Graphics card driver version number
Type in dxdiag in the Windows start menu -> Display tab -> Version

Hi Hamed, thanks for posting some of your details. Could you also add the other information, so that we know which Lumion version(s), graphics card version(s) and driver version(s) work flawlessly?

*Bump* :)

The competition videos show that 99% of you were able to render your videos without artifacts - would some of you like to share your specs in order to help out a fellow Lumion user?

The reason I ask is that Stucki who participated in the competition is having a lot of problems with his Palit 580 GTX 3gb card (every 3rd video has got flickering frames), and he wants to replace it with a card that works.

We would be very grateful if you could spare a few moments to let everyone know which cards and drivers you guys are using to render your videos without glitches and artifacts.

By glitches and artifacts, I mean pink/green frames, black holes in the sky, warped polygons and flickering frames.

Thanks in advance :)

Thanks Nicolás! This is very helpful - I'll make sure Stucki sees this. If you know the manufacturer of your card, please edit your post with this information as well (eg, Gainward, Gigabyte etc).

Anyone else with cards/drivers that work fine?

Hmmm the 590 with 3gb is known to generate artifacts maybe you have found the right driver which fixes this issue.

1) Lumion version:
   SP2.B8

2) Graphics card brand/version and memory capacity:
   Single 3GB GDDR5 Nvidia GeForce GTX 580
 
3) Graphics card driver version number:
   8.17.12.8562

I have not experienced some of the problems mentioned, but have had a few quirks... like a sudden flash of black screen while moving around a model. sporadic, so far

Also, i have that flickering frame problem between animation scenes. it is visible at the end of the first sequence here right after fading to black:

BTW, i was supposed to review my origin PC experience a long time ago from this thread but never got to it. It has been excellent and i highly recommend them. The testing, the packaging and shipping, customer service and performance have been top notch.
