  1. Hi Jonathan,
    I am using vex 2015 and when I try and export solar animation movie the file comes out with zero bytes and subsequently won’t open. Any thoughts?

    1. I’m not sure exactly what the problem is, not without having a look at the file anyway. Creating a solar study should be reasonably straightforward if you’re starting with the Heliodon tool, I’ve created about a dozen today without any problems.

      1. Okay, It’s not on any particular file. Even by opening a new document creating a simple solid and/or site model and placing the helidron it still has the same outcome. It was also the same result when the Bill from vectorworks was trying to show me about the solar animations.
