sunlight analysis in CityEngine

I want to do sunlight analysis and sky view factor analysis with my high-rise buildings. I looked for many tutorials and they told me to transfer the data from CityEngine to ArcGIS to do the 3D analysis. Does the CityEngine have a function to directly execute sunlight analysis or SVF analysis? I occasionally saw a paper that it did! But I cannot find it...... I am just a starter so very confused right now. Does anyone know how to do? I would be very grateful for any advice! Thanks to all of you and happy new year.

I´m not sure 

But did you see these tutorials? Using ArcGIS Pro

Calculate Solar Radiation | ArcGIS Solutions for Local Government  

Visibility Assessment | ArcGIS Solutions for Local Government 

Cityengine has the Visibility Analysis Tool Help -

The solution is no longer available (see screen below). Do u have some suggestions to perform 3D visibility analysis and solar radiation or maybe you still have the solution file.

...yes, visibility tools (View Dome) might help regarding SVF. Unfortunately CityEngine currently does not offer sunlight (shadow) analysis tools.
