If you’ve just started tinkering with HDR image-based lighting in Blender,
it may seem daunting. So hard to control the direction of light (Gimme
the rim light, you, Blender!). Even harder to avoid a blown-out

On top of that, there seems to be so many things to wrap your head around: High Dynamic Range, 32-bit textures, Tone Mapping…

But actually, this workflow is MUCH easier than you might have thought. I promise.

After watching this step-by-step guide, you’ll get the super powers to crush the image-based lighting in Blender.

All the project files are included , so you can follow along with video tutorials

Moreover, Greg Zaal has kindly offered us a couple of amazing 2k HDRI environments from the HDRI Haven website.

Who this course is for:

  • Anyone wanting to master Image-based lighting in Blender and achieve astounding realism
  • Anyone seeking to understand High Dynamic Range, 32-bit textures, Tone Mapping etc.
