View Full Version : How do you make HDRI most effective?

02 February 2010, 05:07 AM
I am modeling a car for a class project. How can you use HRDI images effectively in your rendering to make your car look photorealistic and make it look like it is parked in a parking deck or on a cobblestone driveway? Can anyone recommend a good tutorial or website that explains how HDRI is used and exactly what it is?

HDRI is the same as any reflection image, but it has more brightness which you can change like you change exposure. To effectively use it, it must be very similar to the environment where you use it.
