Please note that scenes and LS5 files saved in 5.3 are NOT backwards compatible with earlier versions. If you try to load scenes or imported model files made with Lumion 1, 2, 3 or 4, you will have to re-apply all materials in Lumion 5.3.
MIGRATING SCENES FROM LUMION 4.5.1 AND 5.0
Lumion 5.3 now allows users to configure a different combination of effects for all individual photos in Photo mode. The inclusion of this new feature means that old projects load with an empty list of effects in Photo mode.
If you want to apply the same set of effects to photos in Lumion 5.3, simply save the effects in Photo mode in Lumion 4.5.1 or Lumion 5.0 and load the effect file in 5.3 via the context menu button above the effect stack.
