Join Dariush Derakhshani for an in-depth discussion in this video Using images and HDRs on lights, part of Learning V-Ray for Maya: A Professional Reference Guide.
In this video, we will be talking about how to use images on VRay Elite.…The most common use of an image on Elite is with an HDRI, and typically, HDRIs can…be environments. For example, we have here an interior…environment of a kitchen, where we have a good amount of light coming in through the…open windows. Of course we have exterior environments.…Here's a nightscape and a dayscape, where we have the primary lights coming from the…sun, and of course from the street lamps. To create an environment light like that…in VRay, you create a dome light. There we go, there's our dome light.…
And in the use textures down here, you'll want to use dome text and that will enable…you to map a file over to your light. We'll go ahead and click file, this will…give us access to adding an image file. I will bring in the desert environment.…Of course, I don't want the JPG, that's just for preview purposes.…I'm going to want the HDR. Now you can find HDR's online.…
There are multiple websites that, sell and create them.…
