QUESTION
How do you save and load materials?

ANSWER
You can save and load a material via the material panel:

Material Editor -> Context Menu (Wrench icon) -> Edit... -> Load/Save

Please note that textures that were added to models outside Lumion are not saved in or loaded from individually saved Materials.

You can also save all the materials of a model as a Material Set file, and automatically apply those materials to another imported model by loading the Material Set file - provided that both models use the same material names in your 3D modelling application:

Material Editor -> Context Menu (Wrench icon) -> Material Set... -> Load/Save

Please note that textures that were added to models outside Lumion are not saved in/loaded from Material Sets:
