I think that is because your graphic card is fully loaded when you are rendering a scene.

Other graphic work then have a slow reaction.

 

Now i'm thinking... @ Lumion staff: is it possible in the feature to select a card for lumion only when the system have more than one graffic card?

i'm now used the Quadro 4000 but there also coming two GTX 570's. So the system can highly effeciënt work when i'm not using all my video power for a heavy 3ds Max scene. Then i can render a Lumion scene continu and running other programs together.

If it is technical possible that could be a functional feature for users whit more GPU boards. They love that! Cool

When you rendering an image the GPU is also fully loaded. Multicore prosessors (CPU) are great in multitasking. But as they (all the cores) 100% loaded, they have also a hard job with more tasks.

You can not render with Lumion minimized.

Also, even if you would have 40 CPU cores, it doesn't matter a great deal (if you have a slow CPU it's of course a different story).

Lumion depends on the GPU for the largest part.

The problem is that if we enable rendering in minimized mode the entire OS is very unresponsive. This is probably caused by the massive amount of work that's done by the GPU.  We decided to stop rendering as soon as you minimize so you can still switch to other programs.
