Lesson 9 | V-Ray HDRI

You can use an HDRI map to light a scene with an environment :




  • Use V-Ray Light in “Dome” mode (units = default, don’t’ use watts!)
  • Load the HDRI map in the V-Ray Light – Texture channel
  • Increase multiplier to increase the light in the scene
  • Use “horizontal rotation” to rotate the environment

A sample hdri map is included in the pack


Hdri maps are for objects, cars, exteriors: everything has no cover on the top.
Hdri maps don’t affect interiors very much (useless for this case)
Always use GOOD and BIG hdri maps. Free HDRIs are usually low-quality maps
