Welcome to the March Render Plus Software Newsletter. In the news this month … Free HDRi images? Yes Please!
Free HDRi images? Yes Please!
If you're interested in new sources of free HDRi images we suggest you check HDRi Haven. While some of you may already know of this site we've only just come across it, and we're impressed! HDRi Haven does provide ways in which downloaders can help support their site, but it's optional.
Further HDRi Sources: We have a great resource of HDRi file sources on our website, or simply search the internet for free high resolution HDRi sky downloads.
HDRi Skies in IRender nXt / ArielVision
HDRi skies are a great way to improve any scene you are rendering. It is a quick and accurate way to include a high quality background image and illuminate your scene using the HDRi light intensity and colors. IRender nXt or ArielVision give you the ability to position a background image just where you want it. This is helpful if you would rather see a different part of the image to give you a better fit and or you want to change the position of the sun in the sky (achieved by rotating the image).
