"An HDRI sky will have it's own location for the sun (if it has a sun). You would need to rotate the HDRi sky until the shadows line up with what you see in SketchUp. We don't have a tool to try to automatically rotate the HDRi sky for you,…"

Nightime Render

I am having trouble getting the right settings for a nighttime scene. I did get one where I can turn off the sky in the light balancer, thus getting a black sky, but I can't seem to do the same thing if I have an image as the background. Can someone please guide me in the right direction or point me to a tutorial? Thank you!See More
