Exporting? Can we?

Hello! I can't seem to find an answer to this: How do you export a scene out of Lumion for use in something else - is it even possible?
Thanks in advance!

Not possible, at all.  Not made to do so and doubt developers would ever want it to be and you can't for all sorts of reasons such as licence reasons in use of other content such as Speed Tree.

Why would you want to export it and to what?

Gotcha...
I thought it might be possible to export the scene out - and then (for me) into zbrush to texture as I liked with my own materials. It's so easy to build scenery quickly that it would of been ideal of me... Just a thought. No problem.
Thank you for the replies.

ah hah

yeah workflow is the other way around, build and texture in modelling tools then export to Lumion for final scene.  ZBrush is an amazing modeller from what I read, what's its export tools like especially Collada and FBX?

I've been using Zbrush for years now - and I love it! Does everything I ever want it to and I use it for business cards to kids books. I've only ever exported out as an .obj, so I'm not the best person to ask I'm afraid.
Absolutely recommend it though!! Brilliant piece of software.
