Hi Hamed,

Unless I am missing something here, the movement of the sun is a relatively straightforward feature process in Lumion, by going to the weather button and adjusting the sun in the panels in that section.

Hi Hamed, go to the Movie section and create a clip:
New effect -> Scene Effects -> Sun Position effect

Then adjust the position on the (red) time line and set keyframes by clicking on the small circular buttons next to the Sun height and Sun rotation sliders:

You're not the first and you won't be the last :) Looks like the circular "Create key" buttons need to be updated, so that it's easier to see what they do.

It used to be different in SP1 and when it was changed to the current system, I was also lost (although I had been using Lumion for a little while by then).

I think the way to rotate the sun in the previous version was better than this version. I talk about the effect of "start position and end position" of the sun.

I have tried several times in 2 different projects, and get hard to do.
Sure can be improved.

why can't we get the same controls for sun rotation in movie mode as we get in build mode?

no confusion and easy to control
