maybe this is useful for somebody with similar problems:
1. had lot of really critical crashes today, lumion could not open my files anymore (lib.mtt = ca. 85 mb)
2. the reason, i think, was reimporting a SU model, but from a file WITH ANOTHER NAME (ALT + RELOAD), which a tried out today for the first time. i had never problems reloading the original file before that. by that, the library files of the reloaded model were corrupted.
3. while trying to save my work, i found out, that the files in SCENES contain all the lumion elements, so it could be loaded without the LIBRARY FILES again. only the imported models were missing, when corrupted and removed from the library folder.
restoring the library files (espessialy "lib.mtt") from a backup folder (manually, thank's god i did it) , the SCENE-file accepted the older, uncorrupted version (the same name) of the library-model-file BUT the colours and textures were lost, only the model itself could be restored.
Colour-Set-Save-Option is really needed !
as far as i can see, it is definitely usefull to save the folders SCENES and LIBRARY from time to time, to keep the "clean" files safe.
i will now write a batch for copyying every changed file in the library folder to a save place...)
in my topic before i already suggested a multiple backup for the library and scene-files to have always 5 latest versions in the folder.
ok, that's it, hopefully nobody needs this info really.....
