So I was doing a simple example of shadow analysis on my project and decided to animate the scene. Between 4 scenes with a 7 second transition the video plays for the expected 28 seconds, however, there is a point in the video where it seems as if it almost jumps to a previous scene and then re-plays that section of the animation.
For instance, I run from 01/05 at 5pm to 05/05 at 5pm to 08/05 at 5pm and finally 12/05 at 5pm. the 01/05 and 12/05 are close enough that the day-cycle should start in roughly the same light and end in roughly the same light.
I understand that the sun changes as it rotates around the planet and you can see that here roughly half way through the video.
It’s just to show that we can use the skill, which we are geolocating in the next class. The issue here isn’t that two scenes are past sunset but that the animation hiccups or jumps, seemingly to another date/time at around 20 seconds. I uploaded the animation clip in my original post to illustrate the problem.
Again … The dates in the scenes are not in chronological order.
And if one arranges the scenes such that the dates are in proper order, the first two scenes are nighttime.
If you want the animation to make sense, try not forcing it to go backwards in time.
I’ll check that out but it’s a gradient from 12/05 to 01/05 so it shouldn’t have hiccuped going backward in time but I’ll let you know if changing it around to go forward in time makes a difference.
If I change it to chronological order, however, it would be 01, 05, 08, 12 and it wouldn’t be night for the first two scenes either. I’m not sure why you think that. All of the scenes are 2017 as far as I can tell. Unless I missed something.
