Crashing a lot - elevations w/shadows

Recommended Posts

Since the very last update CA has been crashing regularly when updating elevations with shadows (for me).  Anyone else notice this at all?

I always use elevations with shadows--no crashes

No.  We have no known issues in X8 that would cause this.

 

My best guess is that you either have something unusual in this particular plan or that you have some kind of hardware/driver/system issue that is causing the problems.  In either case, I would recommend that you work with our technical support team to try and resolve this issue.

Shadows can be set in each camera separately, open each camera DBX and check it

And when i publish the shadows on certain elevations aren't present even though the settings are the same.

Sometimes I have to hit the refresh view button in plan view prior to sending to the elevation. Are you using live views or plot lines on demand or live. You can also refresh the layout view.

Would setting sun to follow camera have any effect on shadows on the first wall?

Also "Generated sky" and "sun follows camera" do not work together, you need to turn one off.
