Is there anyway to animate the dimming down of HDRI Lighting?
There seems to be no Graph editor option with HDRI

I am not sure tbh I am not on my machine atm , however you can "E" the opacity

Image editor. I always change my hdr in the image editor before using in image world.

You could animate it through the image editor. Adjust the image on the Editing tab. There are 'E' buttons there.

There are E buttons, but only for Brightness, Contrast, Hue, Saturation and Gamma.. No opacity
So how to fade it out?
I basically just want to fade the HDR out...

the only way I would imagine you could do it via the Image Editor is by using Add Filter> Node Image Filter * I think it's a DP Kit node if memory serves correct * and then setup a gradient node plugin it into the colour channel " ...


although this seems like a long road for a shortcut

If you convert your Hdri to a spherical map you can use the texture environment instead, there you have opacity and such things.

You can't animate brightness of an Imageworld (sadly) but you could make a inverted sphere model and map the HDRI to it and then you can adjust luminosity of that surface/material to similate on/off along animation.

Then animate the brightness, perhaps ? ;)
It should give what you're after, even if it won't be equal to a "real" dimming of light in real life.

thanks for all help guys but..
it seems to be a bit 'over complicated' just to dim an hdr, so i'm just going to take the easy option and use our old friend After effects..

Can HDRs be added to a dome light and then animated that way? I know that this would just change the illumination of the scene and then you could do the inverted sphere model that Lewis mentioned for the BG.
