If you’re someone who leverages Navisworks to create stereo panoramas of InfraWorks models, you may have noticed the sunlight direction shown in the panoramas doesn’t usually match the sunlight direction used by InfraWorks. This is because the InfraWorks environment properties stay behind when an exported FBX model moves to Navisworks. Fortunately, Navisworks provides custom lighting controls of its own, allowing users to maintain similar sunlight conditions between InfraWorks and their rendered stereo panoramas.
That being said, Navisworks is also capable of defining a wide array of light sources representing interior and exterior conditions. By taking advantage of multiple light sources, you have everything you need to create fully illuminated “late evening” renderings of your models, which is something not yet possible using InfraWorks alone.
If you are interested, I’ve created a quick video demonstrating how to control the sunlight properties of cloud based stereo panorama renderings.
