Photo mode: how to set different sun positions for each photo?

Hello,

I have a question. I have different camera points and i want to set different sun position to each photo. How do I do this. I cant save the position of the sun to the current photo.
This is not a problem with only sun, but also for other effects in the photo editor.

How is the workaround with this?

Hi P-L, if you use Movie mode, you can save any number of clips with 1 camera keyframe in each. And each clip can have its own effect stack, including separate Sun/Shadow/Camera settings.

If you then use the new Shots function in Movie mode, you can render all camera keyframes in all clips with a single click:

Good to hear that, P-L.

The only downside with this sort of setup is that you can't keep 1-camera-keyframe clips separate from any clips you want to render as a video.

I hope the developers will consider improving the way this works in a future update.
