Thanks, Face, for the great addon!
I'm too stupid to figure the basic setup, though. Could you please demonstrate the necessary steps?

Create a pointcloud, add a simulated ICE tree, add the "sun position frame" node, ok.
Now what? Do I need to add a point first? Nothing's happening when I move the time slider.

Thanks and best regards,
Eugen

Ok, here is a simple test scene which shows how to drive the position of a point light, with the calculated sun position from the plugin.

Hi face,
a question: what's the correct way to rotate the north arrow (= the pointcloud) in the direction I need?
If I do so, there's an offset between the light and the coordinate generated by the sun position core.

Thanks!
Eugen

You can simply change the north offset in the location compound to the location which you need.
An offset of 0 means, north is in +z. 90 means in -x, -90 in +x and +-180, north is in -z.
