Solar Shadow Study (animation)

Recommended Posts

I wish the manual had a more straightforward step by step instruction on how to generate an animation of the sun on an architectural model.  I can do it manually.  I know how to get the sun in the right position, and how to make the position change with time and date.  I know I can open the sun position pallets and set the parameters an export the file to an animation file.  Where that is and how I get at it I do not know.

Actually making such a basic animation is not well explained in my opinion.  I have read the animation manual, and they never talk about using the sun as a moving light source.

@Donald Wardlaw The attached is the only tutorial I could find online. It's pretty basic, but might help. Set the "Angle of Site North" properly.....it must coincide with your chosen north angle, which is usually 90 degrees, but double check in case it differs!
