Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video A word about HDRIs, part of SketchUp Rendering Using V-Ray 2.
- In current rendering workflows, the use of high-dynamic-range images for both environment lighting and in seeing reflections has become pretty much ubiquitous across all areas of the 3D industry and our V-Ray for SketchUp course is no exception to that trend. In a number of scene files and videos then, we have made use of high-dynamic-range images that have been downloaded from the excellent HDRI-Hub website. This has a number of free samples available and as these have been released under the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License, which allows for both commercial and non-commercial use of provided assets, we've been able to include a number of them in the Exercise Files download.
I would encourage you, though, to go and take a look at not only the other excellent HDRI collections found on that website, but also at some of the really nice video footage and texture file purchases that are available.
