Sun rotation in SP2?

I realize that this has been completely revamped in SP2. Please, somebody help me figure out how I can make a similar "sunrise" in SP2 now! There are all those "keys" and such and for my life I cannot use them.

Lumion Test Drive - Atmospheric Animation


Thanks in advance! (it seems that with the current fog effect in SP2, we can achieve some stunning effects - too bad fog cannot be animated like other objects)

Hi Aaron,

I've never see the bouncing sun like this in my life. Lumion is incredible.  :+ :+

Now I do...that's odd.   Yesterday I couldn't see it, but I did just use "+additional options" to attach an image on another thread - maybe that woke up the attachments in posts as well.

So - does Basic no longer have the option...is this something that can only be done with the Ultimate pack?

I have a simple "Sun Position" - no animate sun  :-\

Okay - They seemed to have changed the names to protect the innocent...I see the keyframes now and can set it up.  :-D

Simply add a "Sun Position" effect to your clip and click on the small circles to the right of the "Sun Height" and "Sun Rotation" sliders to animate the sun.

I wish the movie control graphic was the same as build-mode.  That way you could tell where the sun is and the height.   The slider can be a bit of a guessing game.  It still works - just not as friendly as the build mode adjustments.
