Default MR Physical Sun & Sky Animation Problem

Hi All,
I try to achieve a sunset animation with MR Physical Sun & Sky. But after everything has been set up (keyframe on the sun direction & Hue Shift for a certain of time) the color transition from day to sunset is not smooth..is like jumping from the last frame of day to the first frame of sunset. I've set the keyframe interpolation to linear but why is this still happen? Can somebody tell me what is it wrong?
Thanks before.

Sorry theres been a mistake on the previous post. I mean i have set the keyframes tangent to "Flat Tangents" not the Linear Tangents but the animation is still not smooth. Hope theres a solution for this.

It sounds to me that you might have an extra keyframe in there somewhere. Or that the animation of the sun and the hue shift don't match, maybe? Linear should be ok as far as curves go.

I've tried the Mr Sun and Sky for Maya 8.5, but I didn't need to animate anything except the sun. Maybe don't animate the hue shift?

Hope this helps.

To support the above suggestion, you might have select two objects and keyframed them, and then selected one of the two objects and discovered that there were no keyframes and re-keyframed the object.
