I need to find a way to get revit to show the shadow of a tree in realistic and/or a rendered sun study. When I switch view styles to anything but realistic the tree's shadow shows up (even shows up in ray trace), but switching to realistic or rendering for sun study the shadow is not present. Anyone have any tips?

Realistic does not show shadows. Rendering definitely should show shadows ??

Pdoak, have you found a solution to this, I would also really like to get this to work. 

Autodesk's website says to edit the type and turn on 'cast reflections', but that does not solve to problem. 

Anyone?

Not all trees are equal. 

What tree?

And ... you should always post - what Revit?

If I remember correctly, I ended up editing it in photoshop after the render was complete. I added the trees post-render in photoshop, then used a copy of each tree and manipulated it to make it look like a shadow. It was kinda a pain because I had to find the tree images, then figure out how to make them shadows, but once I had the images to drop in, and once I figured out how to do it, it was a fairly simple proess. Attached was the final product. I ended up having to add an image for the sky and blending that to fade to blue in photoshop anyway, so the added work of the trees wasn't all that big a deal. Probly better looking results anyway, but I haven't done much in the lines of rendering landscaping, so maybe I'm just not educated enough on that topic.
