Photo-realistic Sunlight for Stills and Animations
As part of v8, Cobalt, Xenon and Argon 3D modeling feature photo-realistic sunlight settings for stills and animations. This makes it easy to do light and shadow studies for architectural designs. Enter the longitude and latitude, the date and the desired time of day as shown in this prototyped dialog box below. The rendering results will reflect the correct position of the sun at that time and season of the year. It is also possible to adjust for color temperature of the sun, intensity and atmospheric conditions.
