- One of the great things about lighting with V-Ray…is the versatility and diversity of options…that the Render Engine makes available,…as well as the natural daylighting system…and the ability to mimic artificial light sources…that we have already looked at in this chapter.…We also have the option to use image-based,…or HDRI lighting, if we want to.…The initials HDRI stand for High Dynamic Range Image,…which is essentially a next-generation image format…that can contain a much higher level…of luminous data than is generally captured…in a single shot by an everyday film or digital camera.…
These give lighting artists the ability to more accurately…reproduce the varying intensity and color shifts of light…that are typically found in a real-world environment.…In fact, V-Ray with SketchUp now gives us not one,…but two ways in which we can apply image-based lighting…to our scenes.…We could, for instance, add a HDRI to the GI Skylight…slot that we were using for out V-Ray Skymap earlier…in the chapter.…Or we could, as we will demonstrate in this video,…
