NVIDIA provides graphics card drivers with two options:
- Studio drivers.
So what driver should you use?
For Lumion, you only need to make sure the graphics card drivers as provided by NVIDIA are installed and up-to-date.
We also recommend installing GeForce Experience so that it provides you with an auto-update feature.
The Studio drivers should work fine with Lumion. The only difference between Studio drivers and regular Game-Ready drivers is that the Studio drivers have been optimized and tested with certain applications (certain versions and newer of Blender, Maya, 3ds Max, Arnold, DaVinci Resolve, Daz 3D Studio, and some others).
Here's the main details from NVIDIA:
"... If you are a gamer who prioritizes day of launch support for the latest games, patches, and DLCs, choose Game Ready Drivers. If you are a content creator who prioritizes reliability for creative workflows including video editing, animation, photography, graphic design, and livestreaming, choose Studio Drivers. Do a little bit of both? No worries, either can support running the best games and creative apps."

"Studio Drivers can either be downloaded directly from NVIDIA.com, or automatically downloaded using GeForce Experience. Switching your driver preference between Game Ready and Studio Drivers is a quick and simple process...."
