View Full Version : HDRI - DOF/bokeh

05 May 2003, 03:19 PM
Just a question or a proposition.
Can we use HRD informations to get bokeh effect in the DOF?? We know HDRI has high lighting information, why not try to combine it with the dof?:bounce:

Yes, that's the best way to do it.

yes a great idea I think... But I've just the idea :)
How manage it (an hdri combined with dof)?

Nobody has found a solution. Although, I gived a good idea for the render master :surprised

Well first, how does one extract that "highlight" info from the hdri image within maya? Or is this something that must be done in Hdri shop?

I believe if you look at GIJoe from, that is what he does with hdri imagery to make it work with the hdri highlight.

Because in my Hypershade, there is a surface shader with only the highlight in it, so he figured it out.

I think he explains it at his site, but if not, I'm sure he'll tell ya if you ask:)

Ahh, nice. Thanks. Used to use gijoe in the pre-mr days. Forgot about all that.
