One Day Sun Animation Error?

I’m using Rhino 7.
The shadow disappears after executing the command regarding One Day Sun Animation.
May I know the reason?
I apologize, in advance, if there are any grammatical or spelling mistakes. No offense is intended.

Hi -

I’m not seeing that here:

Please run the Rhino SystemInfo command and copy-paste the result here.

Hello- the only thing I can see off habd that might help is to disable VRay in Options > Plug-ins page and then close and restart Rhino - does that make any difference?


Hello Pascal!
As I worked in the way you mentioned, I was able to produce normal results.
Thank you.
It would be better if we could find the ultimate solution, but we are lucky to solve the problem first.
This is because there was a work that had to be delivered urgently.

Hello- if blocking Vray fixes things, make sure to have the most current Vray and contant their support forum to let them know there is a problem.


We need to think about updating for smooth work in the future.

Thank you for your advice.
