I have produced a shadow study on plan and 3d views, however I am struggling to show the effect of the proposed developments shadow on the neighbouring buildings.

I have set up elevations in the required direction however when I view the elevation of the neighbouring buildings it's own shadows appears and not that of my proposed develoment.  How do I show my proposed shadows on neighbouring buildings in elevation view?

I have figured out the shadows are visible in a camera view, but it is very distored.

Please help.

I don't think it's doable unless you actually render it out, which is really slow, and doesn't look that great.  I've resorted to just showing a 3D image of the shadow effect on the neighbours walls.

You can do it in an indirect way.  Create a 3D view and orient it to the direction of the relevant elevation.  The shadows will show even if the camera is in front of the objects casting the shadows.  It will be a true elevation although you won't be able to have it to scale, but you can 'eyeball' it and change the view size once it's on a sheet.

@tim123, Do you mean a 3D perspective view, or a 3D orthogonal view? I thought you could only place 3D perspective views "in front of objects" - and then it wouldn't be a true elevation.

Sorry, my error.  Orientating a perspective view will show the shadows, but is not a true elevation.  Orientating a 3D orthagonal view will create a true elevation, but will not show shadowss of objects behind.
