HDRE Landscape Kit


High dynamic range environments for MODO users

HDRE Landscape Kit is a collection of high-dynamic range panoramas and render-ready background plates that provides MODO users with an easy way to place models into natural landscape settings for utterly convincing renderings.

What's included in the HDRE Landscape kit?

This kit includes 5 different locations. Each of the supplied locations includes the following components:
  • Render-ready camera background plates - Each location includes 6 - 12 custom camera background plates. Each background plate includes a ground plane and a pre-calibrated MODO camera. Typically, HDRE Landscape Kit includes close-up, medium and distance shots so you can place objects of various sizes in front of the background plates.
  • 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.
