I'm currently doing a time lapse project for my university course. It's basically just a simple sunrise to sunset time lapse of an interior of a temple with light beams, volume fog etc. I was just wondering what would be the best way to do it? I've had a search of the internet and everything seems to pointing towards adding the time lapse in post. I've never done anything like this before so I was hoping someone could tell me where would be best to start? Would animating lights with intensity maps to simulate light beams work?

is it just over one day?
i guess you could animate the light (your sun) moving through the day. over maybe 1000 frames. then render on 2s or 4s. (type 1-1000x2 or 1-1000x4 in the frame list in your render settings) this will render every second or fourth frame. you could change this to get the look you want. i guess over 24hrs you would take a photo every 30 mins maybe, so work out how many frames you need for that.
after that in nuke set the read node to "nearest frame".
