Sun Angle Won't Change

Recommended Posts

n someone take a look at this plan and see if they can set the sun to come through the skylight in the kitchen.

I have changed the time of day several times but the sun always comes in from the sliding door and windows on the side.

I am confused.  Please ignore exterior of house as it is not needed.

Your interior ambient lighting is fairly bright...I bumped it down to like 30% for interior and 35% for exterior.

 

Then changed the time to be about 4pm, and got this little spot on the wall.

Jonathan - I had the ambient up because I had photon mapping off.

                  I was trying to get the sun fairly straight down theough the skylight at around 12-1 PM.

                  I had the sun brightness turned down because of it coming in through the door and windows.

                  I will try again....

Are you trying to get the light to show through on a raytrace or a plain render?

For whatever it's worth, I've had the sun stop moving properly after messing around with it excessively. It started working again though after I gave the video card a break. Maybe yours did something similar?

Michael - I think that must be it.  Seems better now.

Jonathan - ray trace.  But final view with shadows wasn't working either.
