How to change Save/Library/Scenes directory?

Hi, Lumion dev team and everyone. I have a problem. I have Lumion, and have been working with a it for quite a awhile. So now my C drive (my documents folder) is piling up with mostly Lumion files. The thing is im using up the SSD (128gb) as my primary partition (for obvious reasons lol)

I do have other programs installed but they too use C as my default save location (i.e: Adobe Master Suite files, Google SketchUp files, etc...) so now im left with 900 mb or so in my SSD.

Is there a possibility to change the save folder to another partition/location because Lumion takes alot of space compared to other programs for now...
and yeah i have read the F.A.Qs which shows how to change the "my documents" save folder....but thats gonna effect a lot of my programs, i just want to change for Lumion..

I do hope the next update would implement a save folder location option. :/
Please help

Hello again Jack2421992,

We are unable to provide technical support until we have verified your license status (you posted a screenshot stating that you had a Lumion Pro 3.0.1 license).

Please forward the email receipt you received when buying Lumion to info [at] act-3d.com, so that we can verify that everything is in order.

Alternatively, if you are working for a company with a valid license, I'd be grateful if you could forward the company name and email address to info [at] act-3d.com.

Thanks in advance.

We have just purchased Lumion and was wondering if it is possible to change the save location.

Hi John

Good to hear, welcome to the Lumion users group and community.  :)

Save locations are basically fixed within Lumion to ensure a simplified pathing for projects imported objects and scene files. 

Also, so users have a single location they know where to go for projects and backup etc.

However that does not suit some users, there is a workaround for folder re-assignment.

There is also the feature where you can save out (Pro version) the project to an LS3 file for use by others that can be using Lumion in other locations.

Please see LUMION 3: Tips, Tricks and Shortcuts

Thank you for that information but due to there been the possibility of 10 different users using Lumion 3.1 Pro on 2 different computers (not at the same time), this option would not work for us. Is there anywhere in the registry that I could change the save location.

Hi john.carter, there's unfortunately no way to change the location of the Lumion 3 folder unless you change the location of the entire My Document folder.
