Lucid Builder Importing keys using LIF and LIF3 files

Lucid Builder - Import key menu option
Lucid Builder – Import key menu option.

LIF (exported from the Lucid Version 2 Builder), and LIF3 files exported from the Lucid3/4 Builder can be imported into the Lucid4 Builder using the following steps:

  1. Create a new key (New from the File menu)

  2. Save the key (Save or Save As… from the File menu)

  3. Choose Import Key from the File menu, select the desired file type, then browse for the appropriate file and follow the prompts.

If any errors are detected when importing a key, they will be listed in a dialog box for review. The file can still be imported, but errors may result in only a partial import. For example, if an image is missing the key can be imported but the reference to the image will be removed.

Lucid Builder XML Dataset Files

XML Dataset files are xml documents containing all the data (Feature and Entity lists, item properties, score data and media attachment references) for a key. XML Dataset are primarily used as the data format for upload to the Lucid Key Server Player application.

See the Key deployment help topic for further information on key deployment options.

Note

A XML Dataset file for a key does not contain the key’s media, only references to where the media can be found. Therefore if you need to transfer a XML Dataset file to another computer you should also copy the key’s media directories.
