View Full Version : HDRI render - XSI

02 February 2002, 12:22 AM
Well I just followed the tutorial in you site Ed, for HDRI renderings. I dunno if I-m doing something wrong, but my images lacks color... it seems like I just get a "nomal" final gathering render, and don-t really have the color nuances.

I used the "The Uffizi Gallery, Florence" Probe image from Debevec's site (

I tryied other probe images (with more colors on them), but all my renders seem to be in black and white. Am I doing something wrong? plz help! :D

this is the pic I did with the Uffizi Gallery HDRI Probe image:

I was curious about HDRI, that-s why I'm making these tests, if u guys have other tutorial links, or info related to HDRI plz let me know! :)

try to connect image to "color" node (not just to radience). I'm playing with HDRI too, but I can't correctly map HDR (*.map) image on the sphere :/ I get some black spots on it. What projection do you use?
