Post by: IP_jeanlo on June 30, 2014, 09:48:32 pm
Hi,

litlle question,

I have Lumion 4.5 on my computer ... is there a risk if I install version 4.0.4?  ???

It is to open an old file that I put in my archives ...

Hi

Each version is independent, so there's no problems installing and running an older version.  It will use the same My Documents folders as v4.5.

However, you do not need to do so.  Version 4.5 will read prior versions.  Forward compatible. You may have to adjust the Shadow Effect settings, but other effects should apply the same as in v4.0.4, or one or two may need a little tweaking.

The archived files need to be restored to the same \Lumion 4 folders for \Library and \Scenes for either version.

thank you for your return ...

My problem is that when I put my files in the library folders and scenes ... and I raise Lumion ... I do not see my project.

Which files are you putting back in the subfolders?

For the scene there are two files required: *.spr, *.sva

For the Imported Models in the \Library folder: each object can be either three or four files: *.lib, *.mtt, *.inn, *.txx.

And you have doublechecked that the scene and imported model files are in the correct folders?

My Documents/Lumion 4/Library
My Documents/Lumion 4/Scenes


And you have restarted Lumion?

Which version of Lumion were the files made in?
