SAVED FILE AND DARKNESS

Hello,
I'm using free version. I imported a FBX model, worked for a while and saved it as Lumion project. When reopened it looks like someone took the sun. I've checked all the settings: sun, camera, lighting.. It's steel a night.

Any ideas ?

I have experienced this same issue, but I do not know the cause or solution.

Check the lumion folder in my documents and find the files for your scene. Zip em and post them so we can take a look.

Hi 123przemo, this is a known bug, i.e. that all Weather settings are reset to 0 the next time you load a given scene.

The problem is that we have been unable to reproduce this bug, since it happens so rarely; I have personally only ever experienced it once over the past 1 1/2 years. And we have about 10 user reports so far. If it happened more often, the developers would be in a better position to solve the problem.

In summary, all you can do is to load an earlier version of your scene, and then use the Weather settings in the old version to reconstruct them in the corrupted version of your scene.

Hi I have seen it too, just started using the program. out of 5 saved scenes, 3 of them reload dark. can never seem to get the lighting correct afterwards either.

Hi rayfitzharris, this could potentially be the breakthrough that we've been looking for.

3 out of 5 scenes that exhibit the problem means that it's happening so frequently on your PC that we might actually be able to diagnose what's causing it this time! :)

I understand if you haven't got time since you're just evaluating Lumion at the moment, but it would be awesome if you would be able to help us out by answering a few questions. Is this something you might consider?
