Render Plus January 2012 newsletter


Lots of people are getting good results using HDRi backgrounds for trees, skies, buildings and even interiors of buildings.
There is a Rotation setting on HDRi skies and backgrounds which lets you rotate the HDRi. But it can require multiple steps to get the right rotation to match your model - since you often have to rotate the HDRI, re-render, view the result, and repeat until you get what you want.
Rich has added a new feature to IRender nXt and created a new video: Rotating HDRi which make this much easier. You just drag the background with your mouse until you see what you want - then re-render to get the full effects of illumination, rotation, etc.

Give it a look! Watch Video !
