Getting some glints off of cars from the lens flare filter, i think. Any way to keep the effect on the sun, but not on the cars?

ALSO, i KEEP getting the wind gust at the end of the animation, even after copying the new speedtree.dll file into channels.

Hi Bob, I think the sharp specular highlights on the cars are actually reflected IES lights.

Those reflections ought to be turned off when Light Properties -> Show light source is off, so I'll add this to the bug tracker list - thanks for making us aware of it.

Regarding the sudden wind gust, this is a known issue and they did attempt to fix it in 2.1 Build 4, but it had an unintended side effect (small plants were vibrating) - hence the need to revert to the SpeedTree.dll from 2.1 Build 3 where the sudden wind gusts still appear.

In conclusion, your only option is to lower the Wind Strength slider until this bug has been fixed.

Bob--looking great!

Just tell the client that the wind gusts are due to global warming, and that they should go for LEED Platinum on their school to help calm the wind down.....LOL  ;)
