Why does my model turn black in Lumion?
Make sure that your model is close to 0,0,0 in your 3D/CAD software before you import the model in Lumion. 1.2. If the problem persists, something on your PC is most likely preventing Lumion from saving the Imported Model files to Documents/Lumion (VERSION)/Library.
Where are Lumion materials stored?
Imported Models are saved to this folder: Documents\Lumion (VERSION)\Library: 4 files per model (.
How do you import material into Lumion?

Why does Lumion keep crashing?
One reason for Lumion to crash is that it may sometimes run out of Graphics Card Memory and System Memory. This memory type relies on free space on the hard disk. You can follow this link to increase the Virtual Memory. It’s recommended that you should have at least 50GB, and 100-150GB for very complex Projects.
What do you do when Lumion is not responding?
Make the Lumion window smaller and/or reduce the resolution of your monitor (the fewer pixels it needs to render, the higher the framerate).
- Set the Editor Resolution to a lower percentage than 100% on the Settings screen.
- Set the Editor Quality to a lower star quality on the Settings screen.
What files can Lumion open?
The supported model file formats are as follows:
- DAE (Collada)
- SKP (SketchUp)
- MAX (Requires a 3ds Max installation)
How do you save a material set in Lumion?
4.1: To save or load a Material Set, please select the Materials tab in Build Mode and click on an Imported Model that you have assigned some Lumion materials to. 4.2: Click on the Load Material Set or Save Material Set button to save all of the materials of an Imported Model to an .
How do I repair a corrupted Lumion file?
Unfortunately, there is no way to recover data from a corrupted . LS Project file. In older versions of Lumion, you may also notice that the . LS Project file is empty, i.e. that the file size is 0 KB.
Does Lumion have AutoSave?
3.1: Lumion 7.5 and older: Lumion 7.5 automatically saves a copy of the current Scene (excluding Imported Models) when you load a new Scene. The Scene file is called AutoSave and is available in the Load Scene tab. However, the AutoSave file will be overwritten every time you load a new Scene.
Why are my Lumion materials missing after re-importing?
As a consequence, any Lumion materials that you have assigned to these materials in Lumion 8.0 or older versions will go missing after you re-import the model in Lumion 8.3 and newer versions. The file formats .SKP and .DAE also use material names that are not compatible with each other.
Is there a Lumion problem with building models?
As I expected, it wasn’t a Lumion problem. The original building model came to me from 3DS. I think there were some faces with different textures either side. eg. glass in front, concrete behind. Anyway, problem solved.
Why won’t my Collada import into Lumion?
It’s Open Collada, exported with Max2011 and it does import into Lumion. There is a multi material assigned to them which makes for triple or more material ID’s per component. You need to clean this up. Make sure every component that needs a seperate texture, has a unique material ID. Should take care of the remaining issues. Good luck!
Why does Lumion use the names of imported materials from Revit?
1. Here’s why Lumion uses the names of imported materials from Revit, SketchUp, ArchiCAD etc. If you re-import a model and the imported material names from your 3D modelling application do not match the existing imported material names in your Lumion Project, the Lumion materials can’t be re-applied to the re-imported model.
