Animation in Cloud Render

I need to create some sun study animations, showing the movement of shadows in a courtyard over the course of the day. My in-house revit guru says we can't run animations using cloud render and need to come up with a work-around. Can anyone suggest a way to do this? Is there a plugin or other autodesk product that could help? I've got Studio Max Design, but I find Mental Ray to be nitpicky and less accurate than cloud rendering.

Does the solar study need to be photorealistic? Or could it be a Shaded with Shadows view?

 

Of course you can run a solar study directly in Revit.
