Or at least make the source code availliable so someone can compile it for x64 (i can)

I'm pretty sure it already works on x64. I've compiled it and am running it on 64bit Windows 7. It's a C# plugin and these seem to work fine for both systems. (As far as I know. Let me know if this is not the case.)

Sorry, my mistake.
It works in Softimage 2010 sp1 x64

I may do but I'm just trying to find time to finish the ICE version (which is fully animatable). I hope to release ASAP.

HI,

nice to see these tools evolve with ICE.

thanks for all this, and all new versions you're releasing into the community.

I've compiled a dll for 2011 now. See first post for download.

I did this just in case I can't resolve the issues with the ICE version (before my trial runs out).

Hi Jason,

To resurrect this thread, I have to do a small sun study job, and found out the plugin doesn't work in 2011 SP1 or 2012 anymore :-\

Any chance you recompiled the dll for 2012, or have the ICE version? <wink wink>

cheers for any replies, I hate going back to 3dsmax just for this ;-)

any news about the ICE sun?

i've just seen this and i'm thinking about porting it to softimage.

redmotions unfinished ice compound would be a good starting point...

Hi, I own 2010 and never upgraded so I was trying to use the "unofficial" kinematics part of that version to rotate the null like the plugin did.

BUT I just couldn't get it to work. It seemed like I needed too many decimal places and ICE didn't seem to go to that degree. I could upload it (if I can find it) and you could see if you can make it work, but I've pretty much given up using SI for Archviz. I use Sketchup and Octane now.

A quick preview.
Changes to make are a matrix output and some fixed input locations...

Amazing!
Could you explain a little bit about coding the SunPositionCore Node?

Which detail on coding, the ICE-stuff itself or the sun algorithm for the position calculation?
