Re: Simulate sun position and lights/shadows
Emmanuel, db4tech:

After some testing I can confirm there's a memory bug in the advanced photo plug-ins. When I render the same scene several times, even if it's just a relatively small scene, it stops halfway during the sixth or so render, and after that only shows a red cross in the render window. So it would definitely seem that memory is filling up for some reason.

I have a file called "/home/hans/SweetHome3D-2.4/SweetHome3D.l4j.ini" with "-Xmx1024m" in the same directory as where the v2.4 file is. When I increased this value to 2048, I could make 13 successive renders of that same scene. On the 14th run the rendering stopped halfway,and after hanging (half) a minute I could close the rendering window.
