HDRE Moofe Kit


High dynamic range environments for MODO users

Moofe Ltd. is a UK-based photography company who specializes in supplying images and backplates, which they have photographed all over the world for CGI projects. Moofe Ltd. has a tremendous collection of great shots from their many treks around the globe. They are also MODO users; and through special arrangement HDRE Moofe Kit is able to offer a handy collection of their imagery - along with rights to use in your own projects.

What's included in the HDRE Moofe kit?

This kit includes 5 different locations: Desolate beach, abandoned industrial building, rooftop parking lot, mountain road, and an urban park. Each of the supplied locations includes the following components:
  • Render-ready camera background plates - Each location includes 18 - 25 custom camera background plates at 3,608 x 2,706 pixel resolution. Each background plate includes a ground plane and a pre-calibrated MODO camera. There are 113 background plates in total.
  • High-Resolution spherical panoramic image (4k x 8k pixels) - Image provides source for accurate reflections and refractions from the environment.
  • HDRI image - HDRI image provides source of indirect rays.

What are HDRE kits?

HDRE kits are collections of photo-based environments that provide subtle and realistic lighting to your models. By combining high-quality HDRI panoramas with matching background plates, these high dynamic range environments provide MODO users with the power of image-based lighting with an incredibly simple workflow. Simply choose your location from the Assembly preset browser, select a background plate from the visual HDRE card view, and then fine tune the shot with the HDRE heads up display (HUD). Photorealism has never been so simple.

How does HDRE work in MODO?

Select one of five supplied locations
Just click on the desired location (perhaps the mountain road) then pick your preferred camera background plate (maybe a close-up of one curve on the mountain). Your MODO scene is automatically pin registered to the background plate. A ground plane is automatically created for you to drag and drop your mesh items on top of - and as you do they are placed "in" the photo with accurately cast shadows, lighting and reflections. You can now render your car or other items in this rich new environment without ever having to create a light, adjust a camera, or even having to access the Shader Tree.
Fine tune your results
To further enhance your renderings, embedded controls are presented right in the MODO viewport to adjust things like the amount of indirect vs. direct illumination. For example, moving a slider will enhance the shadows in your rendering by increasing the lighting contribution from physical sun that is available at this precise geographic location. You can also adjust the amount of saturation for both the environment and/or the background - even to the point of turning your background plate into a black and white image. When you select a new environment, it is added to your scene in a non-destructive way. The supplied scripts simply limit the visibility or effect of your existing settings without deleting anything. This workflow allows you to experiment with different locations or mix the effects you obtain from a new location with ease.
