Update...we've gotten a few members, and I wanted to mention that since we got a lot of people watching us. But not all of you have actually said "sign me up" so if you want in, let me know.
For now, here's some spotlighted stuff as promised:
TDBK (https://www.deviantart.com/tdbk) created these four computer generated light probes. Very nice.
smashmethod (https://www.deviantart.com/smashmethod) created what may be the first HDRI pack on deviantart. If you know otherwise, let us know. These are nice, but are only 180 degree topside panorams.
These two are mine Robbie-Powell (https://www.deviantart.com/robbie-powell) and the first one is actually an HDRI
HDRI Stands for High Dynamic Range Imagery. It is most often used to represent a more accurate range of light information for lighting a 3d scene as well as providing accurate reflections and highlights for 3d scenes.
There are several ways to create HDR Images. The most popular being multiple exposure dual angle photos of a mirrored ball which are then manipulated in HDRShop to create a light probe.
Over time we will feature tutorials, samples, discussion, and further information here as the club grows in membership.
Make sure to check out the journal page for the HDRIClub Shoutbox and Forum.
