Hello,

Just launched the Annual Free DS360 XL (19k hdr) Edition 2017/2018 ( CC license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/us/) ). This free version has a unclipped sun and horizon retouche ( plus smooth gradient transition ).

You can download it here (https://www.dutch360hdr.com/shop/product/df360-020/) for free.

A commercial version (https://www.dutch360hdr.com/shop/product/xl-023/) is also available: that one has a new feature *): no sun hdr + seperate sun PATCH hdr

with this you can use the no sun version as base and add the sun PATCH in your 3D/comp app for fine-tuning the sun exposure and if needed alter the sun color. Or - for example - just use the no sun version and add your own sun light in your favorite game engine.

*) please note the new version is only implemented in the commercial products.


The following products now have the new feature included:


1) Dutch Skies 360 HDRI Autumn Pack 01 Reloaded* (https://www.dutch360hdr.com/shop/product/autumn-pack-01/)

2) Dutch Skies 360 Volume 1 Reloaded* (https://www.dutch360hdr.com/shop/product/volume-1-2/)

3) Dutch Skies 360 XL HDRI 023 (https://www.dutch360hdr.com/shop/product/xl-023/) (same as the Annual Free DS360 XL (19k hdr) Edition 2017/2018 but differently names but has the new feature implemented and some more options)

Some notes:

- the commercial skies have also the original hdr's included in the case you want to do your own sun removal or horizon retouche.

- The naming of the updated products is changed: Dutch Skies 360 Volume 1 is now called Dutch Skies 360 Volume 1 Reloaded*. Dutch Skies 360 HDRI Autumn Pack 01 is now called Dutch Skies 360 HDRI Autumn Pack 01 Reloaded*.

- In 2018 new versions will be launched for the following products: Dutch Skies 360 Volume 2, Dutch Skies 360 Volume 3, Dutch Skies 360 Volume 4, Dutch Skies 360 Volume 5 & the DS360 XL serie.

- if you might have some questions better contact me through the contact page of my website (hope you would not mind prefer that above here on the forum).


Upgrade policy:

If you already have a official license (or you won a render contest) just contact me - please mention when you ordered Dutch Skies 360 Volume 1 or the Dutch Skies 360 HDRI Autumn Pack 01. Then will send you a 100% discount code for the new versions.

In 2018 a new upgrade policy will most likely be introduced:

The standard upgrade (so with horizon retouche and unclipped suns) will be still free when you have a official license. From the next release Dutch Skies 360 Volume 2 Reloaded* (launch +/- 1 March 2018 ) there will be paid upgrades when you want to have new feature ( no sun hdr + seperate sun PATCH hdr ) too. The upgrades will be fairly priced.

Greetings
