Looks interesting and is only 40$. I wonder how it compares to HDR Shop and Photomatrix.

I've tried to use HDRshop http://athens.ict.usc.edu/HDRShop/ But didn't get much I could use; could just be me and not knowing how to use it.
I haven't tried Photomatrix http://www.hdrsoft.com/ but i'll give the demo a try.

Carrara 5 can use HDRI for it's back grounds and can be use to set scene lighting, but I can't say I've been too successfull with it; again could very well be me :)

I have made HDRI backrounds in Vue from imported HDR Images, looked good but had not tried that yet in Carrara. I wish Carrara made/exported HDRIs but i did request that in the Carrara 6 Wishlist but having doubts. :)

You've read my posts at Daz, so you know my opinion. Are we ready for Dazarrara.

I'm not sure if the problems I am having with hdri in Carrara is Carrara or the app I'm using to make the hdri; hdrshop. :) But they don't look right, as in seems in the back ground. :)

HDRI environment maps will only work if they are spherical panoramas, ie panoramas that will wrap around a sphere without seams. There are a couple techniques that can be used to create spherical panoramas, such as stitching together a few fish-eye photographs, but none of them are particularly easy.

HDRShop will let you tweak HDR images in various ways, but if those images aren't spherical panoramas to begin with, HDRShop won't fix that for you.

This page shows some examples of what a proper spherical panorama will look like. Notice how the tops and bottoms of the images look very stretched.

This might be off-topic, but autostitch can seamlessly " glue lots of images together, for free, i dont have the url, but google should help,

perhaps genetica can come in handy for blending images? or distort for making panoramical images? after i saw the latest texture in the "Dive" topic in texturing with genetica i think it might be possible (although i havent a clue on how to do it, maybe the " masters of genetica" * can do that :)


*with masters of genetica i mean Atlas and Sethren who blew me away dozens of times with awesome textures :clap: :clap:

I used Photomatix for some time....but Photomatix is about 60.00 but there are other HDR software out there.

i mean you can try http://macphun.com if you are using mac os to do great hdr pics  :painting:
