Hi jsimard01, thanks for your feedback.
It is not made at all for a production or team work pipeline. Why is that? We all know when you work in a studio with several artists or architects we will share all the models, shaders, scene asset and preset with other team member but with your configuration this is not simple or even impossible to share everything.
You're not the first to ask these questions, and Ferry and Remko are aware of the fact that there's no currently built-in functionality that makes it easy to share scenes/library files. Also, weather settings are currently only saved in scene files, and materials can only be saved on a per-object basis, not as separate material files.
Regarding synchronisation of scene and library files, these are currently hard-coded to the C: drive:
C:\Users\[username]\Documents\Lumion\Scenes & Library
As a workaround, some of our customers who are using Lumion on multiple PCs within a local area network have installed network sync software to ensure that the latest Lumion scenes/library files are used on all PCs:http://lumion3d.com/forum/index.php?topic=861.msg5032#msg5032
However, Lumion does not automatically detect and replace library files that have been updated via the network, so you would have to restart Lumion after your colleagues have updated your (local) scene/library files with the network sync software.
