High-Res HDRI Map Pack 3 by smashmethod High-Res HDRI Map Pack 3 by smashmethod
More free hdri maps, and other resources @

These .hdr files are optimally for use in a program like 3D Studio Max, so don't download the pack if you don't have a program that can utilize a .hdr file.

They were submitted to this section because:
1.) they are to be imported into a 3d program.
2.) avoid being in "textures," where multitudes of people would probably DL them, and not know what to do with them.

As I said, they are meant for use in a 3d program, not an image editing program, so don't download them unless you know what to do with them.

After spending much time looking online for some decent HDRI maps, and only acquiring a couple decent looking ones, that were 512's, I just decided to make my own. I made a batch of about 100 or so 1024's, ranging from low environments, to high, mostly photo realistic ones (from personal photos, and stocks), all stitched manually. They have some minor errors here and there on some of them, but for what I use them for, they work more than fine enough. All of the images have been exposed and marked, so you shouldn't have to adjust the Black & White (Point/Clamp)'s. That is to say, if you don't adjust them, you'll get results like those on the spheres above. Non-commercial work only, please.

Great HDRI pack, though lacks differentiation of environment.
For Some of those (I counted 4) produce pretty much the same result unless you want to use the probes for environment display too and not just for lighting (I am talking about dusk ones). Images are fantastic quality, very beautiful and taken just at a right angle. Fantastic for 3D lanscape-focused scenery, but lacks different types of lighting for scenes such as:

- Car showcase render
- Few simple objects on a scene, for the purposes of shader demo
- Urban night scenes
And a few more examples.
What I would like to see added is a few more images of a less natural origin. Regular forms, less colour detail, something that would give a nice gloss on metallic surface. Think Deus Ex: Human Revolution or Tron. That style of images for modern-style lighting.

All in all great pack. Some more variation would be good.
Tested in Blender, using Cycles.
