Hi all!

As there are so few free hdr probes / maps available on web, i thought to make a small contribution to cg community and donate a few free probe images :) Only limitation is that you cannot use them for commercial work without my permission.

You can find four (4) hdr probes on my site. I made them while I had short summer vacation.

As topic says, no demo stuff, no tags or cripples.

Probes are in Mirror Ball format, easily converted to other format with HDRShop... File format is Radiance HDR.

Here's a small thumbnail of one of those probes:


That's all, link below:

Three (3) new probes posted on my site! Have fun etc.

Here's a thumbnail set of new probes (not a link).


And here's the link again in case someone didn't find it in first message ;)

And just to remind you all, it would be nice to see what you're using these for! Post test renders, images, something... Or a link in e-mail to me. 2 people have done that so far.

Cool! Thanks for sharing!

I made this scene test with your sauna_probe HDRI. See below.

Hehehe I won't bug you asking for tuts (I've found enought to make a start I hope hehehe)

But one thing I am wanting to ask is where or how did you make/buy your mirrorball?

I want to make my own HDRI's as well (for a little project) but I can't find out any info on where to get such a thing. Or even where to start, arts supplies? etc...

Although I am in Australia just a general direction in where to get one would be helpfull.

Thanks and keep up the great work, tried one of yous for a test and worked very well :)

Lightprobes are a very valuable but apparently underappreciated lighting resource.
Many thanks for the great pics!
