The Sun Study Effect
works in a linear basis for example Hours are 0 to 24, Days are 1 to 31. So it's not possible within a single clip using keyframes to have it (work easily) where the settings loop around those beginning or ending values, for example hours 19 to 24 then 24/0 to 7.
It works best to use two (or more) clips. If you have one clip already set up, then simply copy (Clip Context Menu -> Edit -> Copy/Paste
) the clip to a new one and then make the settings work for each part of the period.
You also of course need to set your ending and starting snapshots the same so that the change in clips is not noticed.
So for a dusk to dawn arrangement:
1. In the first clip, set the Sun Study Effect
to your dusk date and time settings, say first key at 17 (5PM) and last one at 24.
2. In the next clip set first key at 0 and last key at dusk, say 7(AM).
