Shadow study issue


Recommended Posts

I recently switched from Formz 6 to 8


1.jpg shows settings for sun study in Formz8 and 2.jpg shows settings in 6.6 – resulting shadow is shown in shadow.jpg.


Both are same file, with Vancouver Canada as location and Autumnal Equinox (with DST Set) for date, time Noon.

V8 shows Altitude as 48.37 & Azimuth as 18.44 from South

V6.6 shows Altitude as 39.36 & Azimuth as 21.22 from south


Is this discrepancy a bug or am I doing something wrong? Does anyone know what values should be for this time and date and location?


I emailed support as well. Time is critical so quick info is appreciated.

I've just compared V8.0.1 with v6.7.3 side by side and I can't see any discrepancies, but that is not to say that a file created in v6 and then opened in v8 won't give problems. But just to be sure, I would create a new sun and delete the old one. There may be a translation thing going on.

I've compared multiple cities and all match up.

As Dennis says, support will help you out better when they get back.
