Exchangeing Project files?

I tried to sent my Lumion projects to another guy who also has lumion so he can work on it.
I sent him the complete content of the Lumion subfolder in "MyDocuments\Lumion".

He saved it also there on his harddrive but can't open the scene. He doesn't even see the saved scenes I saved here on my computer.


How can I exchange a complete project so others can use it and work on it too?

Hi,

that should work!

I am using Lumion on two PCs in my office, depending which one is at use at the moment. The way you did seems to be correct. I am always copying the library and the scenes directories in the lumion directory of "my documents". That is all... Did you choose the correct user? You must now automatically see the saved lumion files and all the object stuff you have imported. The only thing you should not do is to push the reload button (edit materials) because then you also have to send your friend the imported file (dae or whatever format you used). I am using a sync software to keep these directories alwways uptodate on the two pcs and the server.

Restart Lumion on the computer where you copied the files?

Mischa, nice idea to use the sync software, I am going to set mine up that way.
thanks!
