Thank you for replaying. i can upload an example.
I follow city standard for shadow studies as outlined in there site plan application policies.
so March 21 - 10am, 12, 2, 4pm, 6pm
June 21 - 10, 12, 2, 4, 6pm
the shading from the sun is always different. (unless you are looking at March and September.
Let me clarify my work routine for these projects.
- set up model using geo-location.
- bring in site plan from autocad.
- extrude the buildings to correct height.
- set up scenes - each scene is each date and time labeled.
- turn shadows on. set date and time using shadows tool.
- export scenes using animation (preferences on model for 1 frame per scene) to jpeg
- setup in pre made template in adobe in-design. link photos to each time and date.
- using pen tool outline in dashed red pen tool each shadow and its outline.
the problem i have lies in the shading of the sun on the whole model. for example. i would love it. if i could get the same brightness for December as i do for June. June is great, its bright, its dark dark shadows. December is dark its hard to see where the shadow is at 4pm. do you guys see where i’m coming from? i want the same brightness for every image i export. showing me clearly the shadow on the air photo under it.
