View Full Version : Lighting + HDRI

I am looking to create an overall smooth light effect. Something along this line -


It gave me a decent effect when I tried with Sunsky plugin, and HDRI, but the lighting is too uneven and I get very deep and defined shadows.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can get a much smoother light solution(Kinda more washed out)? Even though it may not be the most realistic approach. Shadows do exist afterall..

You could make your backdrop color solid white. Then enable Backdrop Radiosity to evenly light your scene. Turn off your lights in your scene and you will have a very evenly lit environment.
