    FYI TIP – Sun Directly Above

    Using the Sun for Top View Renders is fast and looks good. No need for individual lights. But most settings make it hard to get Sun shadows to look OK. That is because you arent on equator.  If you set Date to March 22 and Location to a city on the equator, the Sun is directly overhead at Noon.

    So simply set Location to Ecuador.

    Play with Time around noon to get a little shadow but still see down into the rooms.

    What have you been up to Merv? 
    I am swamped here. Busiest in years. Everything from large new homes, to remodeling to experimental to can you help me I need a permit jobs. 
    I can’t figure out where all the ‘old’ users went? And hardly any new users posting. 
    You are about the only one keeping things alive here. Thanks for that.

    G’day Jack!
    I have a mate in OC CA who would attribute it all to the Donald.
    Bill left Oz in 1988 to make his fortune – calls himself outbackoz
    He’s now convinced the only colour in the rainbow is RED!
    (dunno why I’ve had no response from him since the mid-terms  )
    btw, “old” is a 4 letter word here; I prefer the term “mature”

    I would say since the early 2000 years, ‘Help Wanted’ signs have gotten smaller each year around the midwest. With almost none around the last Pres. term. Since Pres. Trump, the signs first started appearing, then got moved closer to the streets and now are banners bigger than car dealers have.
    My Grand kids at 14 and 15 applied for burger flipping job one day and were told to report to work the next day. Putting in hours after school and weekends. They don’t need to work, they just want to. Nice to see.
    Most contractors around have stopped bidding last month. They already are booked through the winter. 
    But yet, news is only full of ‘bad news’. Go figure.
    —————————
    My reference to ‘old’ wasnt releated to age but to the regular uses that were on the old forum. 
    I sure miss seeing what everyone is up to. 
    That is why I started the ‘Tips’ posts. My way of being active. 
    Thanks for being one of the ‘mature’ users, still around.
