Many of the renderers out there now support multiple resolutions of HDRI. Please check out sIBL:

The idea is you can use a low-rez hdri for for lighting, a middle-rez for reflections, and a hi-rez one for backgrounds, unless you are using a backplate.

sIBL has some really good tools for creating all of these HDRI's from a single image. On the site, they say how much faster a render will finish if it uses low-rez lighting maps.

Your comment about speeding up when using low res maps for lighting does only apply to slow tools like mental ray, most near realtime engines do not need such tricks ... no need for sIBL.

Learned something new today, thanks!


Wanted to share my growing hdri collection.

There will be new ones in the next days as I am stitching some new at the moment.

...then select your preferred environment, hit 'download' and BAM! takes you straight back to the homepage. :'(


 :) hey thanks for the links...the time lapses are gr8...will really improve my renderings..will post it here in the forum as soon as i get it done...cheers  ;)


I moved an HDRI file into my Keyshot 'environments' folder, but it doesn't appear on the list of environments once I open up Keyshot...should I be doing something to make this work? Not sure why it isn't there.

Never did get any of those 'crazy8studio' files, they just won't download! >:(


ello ello, the crazy8 website seems to be dead. Anyone kind enough to share what they downloaded? :)
