Re: Simulate sun position and lights/shadows
Hi Emmanuel,

I'm not sure if you have done any further work on the shaders since version 1.3 of advanced and Uber, so I will present some findings using version 1.3.

Could there be a memory leak with the shaders or SunFlow? I ask this because if I render the same scene (containing lots of textures) then change a few things to improve the scene, then re-render (I do this quite a lot tweaking things (400x300 fast setting)) at first the renders are very fast but then renders start to slow down, eventually the scene tries to render, thinks for a while and a red x shows. The only fix is to close Sweet Home then start Sweet Home again with the same scene, after this rendering is very fast for a while.

I have tried this with more than one model (for my course work) to be honest, when I am happy everything looks right and I am ready for a final render, I always close the Sweet Home program then open it because it renders my final scene faster.
