|Product Name:||Aerial IBL Wide Open Skies HDRI|
|Published Artist(s):||Denki Gaka|
Aerial IBL is a brand new series of environment spheres created from actual aerial photography to create a unique point of view that will literally take your renders to new heights!
Using Image Based Lighting (IBL) spheres in your Iray renders makes your models come alive as they are bathed in natural light and show awesome realistic reflections. The only problem with them is that your camera is always placed in the center of the sphere, and so your view is limited to changing the angle about the original camera’s nodal point.
In the past these IBL spheres were either rendered in 3D software or created by stitching together dozens of photographs taken on a tripod using a specially designed head to get accurate movement. The rendered IBL spheres often look unrealistic and the photographic environments have always been limited to the viewpoints available from a tripod, but with the improved quality of panoramic software and the superior capability of modern drones, it is now possible to create accurate aerial panoramas that will unlock a world of new possibilities in your renders.
Each High Dynamic Range Image (HDRI) in this product was painstakingly built from nearly three hundred 12 mega pixel images. The aerial panoramas were then combined with a sky panorama shot with a ground based tripod at the same time to create a full 360o x 180o HDRI panorama with a resolution of 16384 x 8192 pixels with a 32-bit color depth. It took lots of work to create them, but I think you will agree that it is worth it. It’s time to let your renders FLY!
(Also includes visualizer spheres to make your posing quicker using Open GL, since not everyone has a top end video card in their machine.)
