  • Helpful Tips for Using HDRIs*
  • First, if you aren't already, enable and use the Aux Viewport. (Window's Panes (Tabs) Aux Viewport) Put is somewhere where you can see it. If you have an older graphics card, make the window small. If you have a powerful card you can use it larger. Set this window drawstyle to NVIDIA Iray. This will give you a live render preview of your scene.
  • Apply an HDRI preset from the Content Library and open your render settings. In the 'editor' tab, go to the last in the list, Environment. These are the dials and settings to manipulate the dome. Use the 'Dome Rotation Dial' to turn the sky left or right. The slider is in degrees, so '90' would be opposite of '270', and '0' and '360'; are the same position. You should see the effect in the Aux window in real time, or nearly real time. You can also change the tilt with the Dome Orientation X. Y. and Z sliders. The Y is basically the same as the 'Dome Rotation Dial'. You can make changes in 10 degrees or so to see the effect.
