sun/shadow study animation export -> time????

Postby bsfranza » Mon Aug 22, 2016 3:48 pm

hi there,

i really love the geolocation feature of sketchup and the possibility to make short animations with scenes that show the daylight cycles etc.. also one can export animations

now, is it possible to have some kind of clock or timer in the animation that shows the actual time???

if not inside sketchup how would you go to add that to the finished animation?

thanks for your help

There was a plugin made some years ago that would display the time and date on screen. I used it in a shadow study animation I did for a client back then. I'll have to hunt for it because I don't remember where I got it or the name of it.

If I recall correctly this is "time" available from Smustard.

Time would do what you want.
Unfortunately it's no longer available.
I will PM you an alternative 'private' script...

Is this something that is available now as part of SketchUp? Or otherwise...

I have a need for the same to produce a shadow study. It would be great to have something accurate within SketchUp and actually linked to SU's shadow times - rather than adding a timer in After Effects which is what I have done, but this is a very cumbersome solution.

I have been looking everywhere for an extension that would show the shadow time in an animation. I hate bugging TIG for a PM with private code. Is it available anywhere else?

What do you mean by shadow time?

- The amount of sun / shadow an area would receive?
or
- The date & time on screen when viewing an area with sun/shadows enabled?

Tig,
Do you still have this alternate code, or in the last few years are you aware of a newer method?

Hello TIG,

you are my last hope to get my problem done. I need to have a time stamp on my exported video that shows day and time of the current shadow. I tried some ruby code but that does not work on exported animated videos.

Thank you very much in advance!
