Question regarding Movie settings 2.5 Pro

The final output of my Lumion Movies so far have been quick and dirty.  I never got into setting any custom like settings so not that I have a few months or month before I will be asked again to do some interior movies I wanted to see what these new 2.5 Pro setting will do.

I get the Frames per second but would 30 to 60 do anything besides increase my file size and rendering time to make the movie?  What and Why would I use 200 fps?

Background Rendering = Could I use Revit 2013 and other programs while it renders in background or will my CPU crash and slow way down?  Have super computer here so just checking what it would do to slow it down too much.

New Additonal Exports?  I think you spelled it wrong Additional is the word and you are missing an i after the t....but could you explain all these exports and what they do?

Frame Range = Off or On what does that do for me?

Thanks
Billy

Hey Billy,

The TV standard framerates are PAL = 25fps and NTSC = 30fps (well, 29.97fps strictly speaking).

If you render a movie at 60 or 200fps, and add it to a 25/30fps project in Premiere, you can make a slow motion effect. You can also use a 60fps movie as a basis for an interlaced NTSC movie in a 3rd party video editor.

Background Rendering = Could I use Revit 2013 and other programs while it renders in background or will my CPU crash and slow way down?

You can use other (3D) programs while Lumion is rendering in the background but the performance obviously won't be great since Lumion tries to use 100% of the GPU 100% of the time. The best way is to test it on your own rig.

Could you explain all these exports and what they do?

Here are the G-buffer output types:

These output types are for compositing/post-processing purposes in Photoshop/AfterFX.

Frame Range = Off or On what does that do for me?

Instead of rendering a full clip, you can now just render a short segment. Which is handy if you change something in your scene, and you don't want to render the entire clip again.
