Shadows on windows

New to Lumion and was looking for any help on how I can get the suns shadows to show up on my buildings windows.

I have updated my sketchup model to have the Lumion glass material, I have the transparency set to 0.  I have played with the reflections sliders and the shadow settings in photo mode to no avail.

In the attached image you can see the shadow from the sun shade showing up on the building and on the window frame but there is no shadow effect on the glass.

Any help is much appreciated.

I've had the same issue with shadows on glass. I hope there is a work around.

BTW, your site, roads and curbs look great. What software are you modeling in?

Hi billsmith11683, welcome to the forum.

Unfortunately sun shadows are not not projected onto the Glass material.

Quick Fix:

the glass you are showing isn't transparent so I would use a different material - "General" and put a reflection on it, then the shadows shall appear where you have glass.
