Act-3D

Act-3D

Lumion simplifies the rendering process by taking the setup to completion phase from days to hours. The software is designed to allow for last minute changes and can update an existing render is just a few minutes.

Hardware Recommendations

Processor

As Act-3D does not use the CPU for rendering, a CPU with a high core count is not required. However, a fast multi-core CPU will significantly improve the scene loading speed. Therefore we recommend a processor with 4 to 6 cores.

Graphics

Lumion Act-3D is a GPU-centric rendering application and benefits from having a powerful graphics card.

For post production video editing, we recommend NVIDIA GeForce RTX graphics cards as they provide high performance at a great value compared to Quadro cards.

For lower budget systems, we recommend the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti.

For higher budget systems, we recommend the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti.

For ultimate performance, we recommend the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090.

Storage

We recommend a solid-state drive (SSD) for the operating system and software.

In addition, we recommend a 4TB or larger hard drive for storage of the pre-rendered assets or the rendered export files if storing these files locally. Hard drives work well for rendering since it is generally not read or write intensive.

Memory

In general, 3-6GB of RAM per CPU core is recommended. For example, if you select a single 12-core processor, 32GB will suffice for basic tasks or 64GB for more demanding workloads.
