Sun Study

The NVIDIA Omniverse™ View Sun Study tools offer a very accurate way to review a model with accurate sunlight.

Walkthrough (Video)

Sun Study Time Line

When the Sun Study Timeline is invoked it will appear on the bottom of the viewport and allows the user to “scrub” or “play” through a given day/night cycle.

Note

In order to use the Sun Study, One of the dynamic skies (Sky Browser Panel > Dynamic Skies) must but set in your scene.

Location

In order to accurately represent the Sun, NVIDIA Omniverse™ View needs the Latitude and Longitude of the location you wish to represent.

Note

Many tools give GPS co-ordinate data which is not the same as longitude and latitude. You can tell this if it is written with a North/South by East/West designation. To convert, simply invert West or South designation with a negative value. For example 22 degrees South (22.00’000 South) converts to -22.00.000 while 35 degrees West (35.00’000 West) converts to -35.00.000. East and North designations can be ignored as they are both positive and do not require any alteration to work.

Date and Time

Date and Time can be set for the specific calendar date of your choosing for accurate sun study results.
