SketchUp is 3D modeling software for professionals. SketchUp is easy and intuitive, allowing anyone to model in 3D quickly and accurately. Using 3D models, designers can make more informed decisions, communicate project details, and share ideas with colleagues and customers to reach a common goal.
How to apply domelight and HDRI in vray 3.4 sketchup to set sky
This sketchup v-ray tutorial is based on the process
to set sky with domelight and HDRI in vray 3.4 sketchup.
Dome Light produces simple, artifact-free image-based
lighting with significance sampling of HDR images. This method makes light
tracing and global illumination process accurate.
The VRay Dome Light belongs to a V-Ray specific light
source plug-in that is applied to generate image base lighting setup.
It is available in v-ray toolbar as dome light icon.
Just click on it and then click any place in the scene to arrange the dome
HDRI means High Dynamic Range Imaging. It is a method
that creates a bigger span or range of luminance amid the light and dark areas
of an image.
In V-Ray for SketchUp, the HDRI can be applied
both as a background and an IBL (Image Based Lighting). If HDRI is applied as
background, just load it in the Environment Rollout/Background. If it is
required to use it as an IBL, then just load this HDRI in the GI (Skylight). It
will transform to a light source then to illuminate the scene.
