Scenes Can Be Imported, Merged, Replaced, and Externally Referenced

By merging geometry from different programmes or sceneries, you can reuse work and see significant productivity advantages. With the commands for Import, Merge, and Replace, 3ds Max supports this method. Using the XRef capability, you may also share scenes and objects with other people working on the same project.

Geometry Import from Other Programs

To insert objects from other programmes into a scenario, use Application menuImport. The Files Of Type list in the Select File To Import dialogue contains a list of the file kinds that you can import.

You might have options for that import plug-in depending on the file type you select. Check out Geometry File Formats.

Scenes are combined

To combine several scenes into one sizable one, use Merge. You have the option of choosing which items to merge when merging a file. You can choose to rename or skip over merged objects if they share the same name as an object in your scene.

Animation Scenes Loading:

To add saved animation to scene objects, use the Load Animation command.

Scene Object Replacement:

To replace objects in your scene with identically named objects in another scene, use the Replace command. Use replace to swap out simplified objects for detailed ones before rendering your scene after setting it up and animating it using simplified ones.

With the exception of only listing items with the same name as objects in your current scene, the Replace dialogue is identical to the Merge dialogue in appearance and operation.

Using outside sources:

When using elements from other MAX files that are actually references in your scene, use XRef Objects and XRef Scenes. With options for updating and securing external files, these features enable file sharing within your workgroup.

Link to File:

You can use either the FBX or the DWG format to link geometry and materials from other Autodesk programmes using the File Link Manager. To edit the scene, you can use either 3ds Max or the alternative programme while keeping the same source file.

Sent To:

A further method for sharing a single source file with other Autodesk apps is the Send To feature. When a file is sent to another Media & Entertainment application, that application is launched. You may then change the file in the other application, send it back to 3ds Max, make additional edits in 3ds Max, and so forth until you get your desired outcome.

How do I merge Lumion projects?

1. How can I move scenes or items from one project to another?

Utilize the Merge option (available only for Lumion Pro users).

Choosing the Files option:

From the Welcome to Lumion screen, select the Load Project button.

Select the “Merge” button.

2. Can two Lumion files be combined?

You can combine all of your individual scenes into a single Lumion end file the next time you and the architect, interior designer, landscape designer, and other specialists need to collaborate on a project.

3. How can I increase the realism of my Lumion render?

Enable “Speedray reflections” when rendering, and place reflection planes on broad, flat surfaces. Adjust the floor and ceiling materials’ gloss sliders. It will always be preferable to have reflecting materials over flat, non-reflective surfaces.

4. What file extension does Lumion have?

Most popular CAD and BIM authoring tools are supported by Lumion. The following file types are accepted: Collada (. DAE), Sketchup (. SKP), and Autodesk (.

Can I merge two Lumion files together?

You can combine all of your individual scenes into a single Lumion end file the next time you and the architect, interior designer, landscape designer, and other specialists need to collaborate on a project.
