I seem to have lost my scene. I thought it was suppose to auto save on exit.
Is there possibly a back up file somewhere?

Thanks,
Dean

Hi Dean

Lumion does an AutoSaveOnQuit when exiting (see pic 1 attached).  It also does an AutoSave when changing from one scene to another one.

There should be a thumbnail there for one or more of these auto-saved scenes in the Load Scene window.

When you click on the Load Scene Tab, what scenes are showing?  Please do a screencapture and attach to a post.

Did you do a save or saveAs at some time for the scene you were working on?

Note: you can also check to see if the named files are in the \Scenes folder for the file.  Refer LUMION 5: Frequently asked questions for file locations.

I chalked it up to learning and have started a new scene. Thanks.

OK.  Hopefully no other scenes get lost.

Always do a Save, and when you change the name of the Scene, for example from myprojectA to myprojectB then that is a SaveAs, creating a new Scene, and you will be able to Load either Scene versions.
