Title: Saving files
Post by: nolascor on April 07, 2016, 01:01:38 am
We got the new license for the computer labs, thanks.

How can students save files and continue to work on there files the next day using a different computer? Where does lumion save the scene or model?

Can you save it in a usb stick and open the scene in a different computer.

Some end up repeating everything since they don't have a clue where the file is saved.

Good to hear its finally sorted for you nolascor.  :)

Please see some of the articles in our Knowledge Base: File & Back-Up Questions (;area=cats;cat=51).

Student will have the Student Version, same features as Lumion (standard/normal).  Lumion v6 makes it much easier now  :).  All they need do is use the Save Scene and Models Tab and save the file to a USB.  LS6 files can be large so they must ensure there is plenty of free space on the USB.

Because the working files are saved by default to the \Documents\Lumion 6\ folders, they should then delete them once the LS6 has successfully been saved.

The LS6 can then be opened on a different PC.  When Lumion opens it, it will save a copy of the Imported Models files to the default location which is \Documents\Lumion 6\Library.  It also saves a temporary copy of the Scene to a file called "Import" in \Documents\Lumion 6\Scenes.  The student must be careful that they either:
1. Save the Scene (Save Scene Tab) after doing some work, and then later on save to an LS6 file, or
2. Ensure that they save to an LS6 file before leaving the computer.

As always, work should be regularly saved in case of other problems.

You will find the Knowledge Base Articles useful and cover a number of topics for students, so please feel free to point them to the resource, including this Article of other resource links: Which resources can you look at to learn about Lumion? (

Thanks for the response.

I did get a student to email me an ls6 file but when I opened it, no model appeared, just the plain grass scene. Do they have to submit the Revit file as well?

An empty LS6 scene file is not of any use.

Please ask the student to send you an LS6 file that includes the problematic model as well as the Revit file (as mentioned in the other thread). Thanks in advance.
