It's not done yet, but it is getting there.

I used Corona for this preview, but I wired the Corona sun to a C4D sky object, so the time from C4D will be used with Corona.

Most time went into research A dial that really works is not quite one with 15 between the full hours.
It does not show the "really correct" time, as sundials have some issues:
- in Summer, they don't take the daylight savings time into consideration.
- they only work without adjustments at the right longitudes.
- there is a time equation that even complicates things.

So I got as close as I was willing to go
Why Corona? I needed some caustics for the midday effect and standard renderer didn't do what I expected.

More later (hopefully)
