View Full Version : HDRShop Lightgen weirdness?

01 January 2006, 04:18 PM
Hello people

I am working with the HDRShop plugin "light_gen" to generate lights out of my HDRIs. The problem is that the light intensity always comes out extremely high (several thousands). I use the "dimmer" attribute to decrease the lights intensity but I have to use extremely low values to get decent results (something like 0.00001).

I went back to HDRShop and decreased the "desired total light intensity" to something like 0.00001 but I still got the same washed-out render. I haven't tried using the "scale total light output" thing so I don't know if that will be the "magic button" that solves everything.

Any ideas? :)

well nevermind... I got it to work with the value of 1. I even have to increase it to get more light in there :shrug:

At least it's easier to increase it on small values than entering very small values...
