11 images 2000x1000 pixels each, plus small blurry versions and previews
Torrent: Studio_HDR_images (http://thepiratebay.org/torrent/4378316/11_Studio_HDR_images)

If someone could download and upload them to some filesharing site and provide links I would be very happy :)

Example render using one of HDR images:

Torrent above is old, use rapidshare link bellow for updated version:

I don't believe that it's allowed to share these HDR images. How can downloaders be sure that the downloadable HDR's are done by you? The given URL tells no good stories '..thepiratebay..' :rolleyes:
If sharing is legal, there should be no problem for you, to post then to the common hosters like rapidshare aso.

I can show you wireframe renders, or whatever you may want, to prove that they are made by me :)
I think torrent is better than these sharing sites, where you have to enter verification codes, wait and etc. thepiratebay may not sound very trustworthy, but its one of the best torrent trackers.
I uploaded it to rapidshare:

there is also 2 bonus images I made today (enjoy :))

I would be grateful if you upload it.

Actually I thought that rapidshare removes non-account uploads after a couple of weeks or so, but later I found that they only remove uploads after 90 days of inactivity and that is not that bad :)

First I'd like to say thank you :)

Secondly.. What's the orientation of the HDRs? I've tried both cubical and sperical but they don't come out right. Using 3ds MAX with Vray.

Update: It seems I only have probs with the first ones. Studio 15 e.g. works fine.

Nice one mate - thanks.

And I think using a torrent site is a good idea.

They all are made for spherical environment mapping, so I dont know what the problem might be. Could you be more specific about what don't come out right?
Sorry for delayed answer.

Well, I kind of assumed that you used that so that's what I went for. Spherical that is.
The problem is that when I apply the first ones, I kind figure out where the light comes from.
I tried to rotate them since I sometimes encounter this problem when I do my own HDRs.

But it's no biggy. The rest works fine, mate. :D

Hi zbyg,
thank you for your effort and kindness. Your maps are quite clean and provide very nice studio setups, in particular with typical industrial design shiny surfaces. If you don't mind, I'd like to know what's your workflow to make them, just some hints about sources and software, because I'd like to try it myself, but miss the starting point. Thank you.

Hi SyncViewS,
there is my old tutorial, which explains the basics, here: http://zbyg.deviantart.com/art/HDRi-tutorial-115992158
Basically you could take any scene and render it as a hdr map after disabling tone mapping and adding a 360 degree camera. I used 3dsmax 9 for modeling and rendering, and MaPZone for textures

Thank you very much for the quick reply, and of course for the tutorial. It makes sense, while I was wondering how to play with HDRShop and standard renders. I totally missed the Wrap Around lens effect. Thanks again, I'm going to play :D

There was a video tutorial that i saw where someone used this HDRI pack to setup a studio render...

in the tutorial he does all the setup using only a sphere then later replaces it with a car to see what it looks like... anyone now where this tutorial is?? I really liked it and want to find it again, was a dumbass for not bookmarking it

Excellent idea, implementation and offer! Congratulations! :thumbsup:

One question: Is there some free software (or trial) available to convert these spherical maps to cubic maps?

(Cubic maps are needed for performance, for realtime rendering)

ahven

thanks zbyg. I converted these to c4d back some time
ago.

Please head to cinema 4d resources on the forums.
http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?f=94&t=76646&page=3

I have my own hdri pack as well but
itīs now only for c4d. hdri is very generic for
all 3d apps so I might just release my
own as just a HDRI pack.

You're a legend.

People will sing songs about your hdri maps long after they think you're dead.

Thank you so much.
