HDR environment maps

Post by RayW »

G'day.

Can you educate me on how to syncronise HDR maps to your model. For example, my output image is 1024x576 pixels and when I select a HDR, the background is all pixelated?

What are the actual dimensions of your HDR image? Usually, this look you get is because the hdr is very low quality, you need something like 4000 pixel wide to get a nice output.

They weren't that big. I think around 2000 something. I'll see if I can find something bigger and try it again. Thanks for the help.

If the file size is like 40MB then it should be a good one. Here is one, try it out see what you get?

WOW, this looks absolutely amazing and real.

I got this one from OpenFootage.net when they were free. If you want free ones, you'll need to search the internet for and they're not easy to get good ones unless you pay!

Thanks very much. It did come out far better than some of my earlier models. But I guess when you're retired you have time to correct your mistakes. :lol:

It came out as a photo, can't tell the difference!

It's no mistake, it's just technical stuff that not everyone know, perfectly normal.
