Saving time with materials

I have a tip that can save us all a lot of time. As long as we can not choose Lumion materials directly in SketchUp, we can create a collection of the most commonly used materials and then switch them out with Lumion Lumion materials (which are often far better than the imported textures). This scene can then be saved as a template, so that all materials are ready for use later on.

Unfortunately not.

When you create your own Standard materials in Lumion, they are tied to the model that the materials are assigned to.

One for the Wish List I guess...
