HDRi CALIBRATED 16K SKIES
One of the most popular methods, when lighting a 3D project, is what we know as IBL (Image Base Lighting), which consists of using a panoramic 360º high dynamic range image (HDRi) as a lighting source, to to reproduce as accurate as possible, the actual sky conditions at the time of capture. However, this technique has some important limitations and inconvenients, and that is why incorrect HDRi can cause problems when it comes to lighting our projects, sometimes causing worse results than automatic sky systems and sun that are included in most render engines.
This third HDRi Pro Pack, contains a selection of 24 HDRi designed to work independently of the other Packs, but at the same time complements it perfectly, providing new lighting alternatives for professionals.
Also in this new Pack, you will find high resolution images taken at the time each HDRi was captured. These images are ideal to be used as backplates in your renders since they fully coincide with the characteristics of the HDRi itself.
WHAT DOES THIS PACK INCLUDES?
This HDRi Pro Pack 03 contains a collection of 24 high-resolution (16K) calibrated HDRi. The skies have been photographed in different seasons of the year, with very varied weather conditions and with a wide variety of time frames, so that you can find the perfect lighting for your project.
In addition, in this new Pack, all HDRi are complemented by up to 8 high-resolution (8K) photographs in CR2 format, obtained at the time and place where the HDRi was obtained, in order to be incorporated as Backplates in your renders.
When capturing HDRi in skies with visible sun, one of the most common problems is the lack of dynamic range, due to the limitations of any real camera. 3D Collective’s HDRi have all the necessary dynamic range so you don’t have to modify anything in the file, and so that you can obtain real exposure value and luminosity in your projects. Simply load one of our HDRi to have a realistic lighting and a camera exposure matching real values.

HIGH QUALITY HDRi AND 16K RESOLUTION
When it comes to capturing HDRi images, the most common method, is the use of fisheye lenses that allow a very fast capture of the photographs due to their wide angle of vision. However, this type of lens usually has problems of chromatic aberrations and they don’t allow to generate images of high resolution. In order to offer high quality 16K HDRi, all the skies of this pack have been captured with high resolution (50+ MP) cameras and high-angle rectilinear super angular lenses to minimize chromatic aberrations, allowing an original file of more than 24K which is then reduced to the final 16K HDRi file to reduce noise and guarantee the highest quality standards.
CLEAN HORIZONS WITH 180º COVERAGE
When using HDRi, there are several possibilities; There’s the HDRi that besides the sky contains the original horizon of the place of capture, this can cause that the trees, buildings, mountains, etc. from the location of the capture, are reflected in our projects. This might be useful to make a quick LookDev, however, when presenting a final project, it’s preferable to have independent control over the sky and the horizon.
In this new Pro Pack, all our HDRi have been captured and modified to eliminate any intrusive element on the horizon, keeping only elements such as distant small sized mountains that allow us to achieve a more realistic horizon and add important details when we use the HDRi as a background.
We have also extended the HDRi below the horizon line to avoid problems in projects at sea or near level 0.
PRECISE COLORS AND COLOR TEMPERATURE
Another challenge when capturing HDRi images is preserving the original colors and color temperature to ensure consistency and allow a color temperature control similar to that of a photographer in real life. All of 3D Collective’s HDRi have been made with the help of several systems to check and correct the color and the exhibition such as Color Checker, Luxometer, grayscale charts, etc. If you want to modify the color temperature of your render, you can do it as a photographer would do in the physical camera or in post-production.
