Created an HDRI with Blender + Cycles and used it to light
up this scene that was rendered with Blender + RPR.
No lights in the scene, just the HDRI.


can you explane your workflow for creating hdri please?

Im trying to scale this rings to an average women size in mm. Some of this
rings are from other renderings and scales are off.

Let me get you some info for you on how I made the hdri.

Looks great! As for modelling the jewellery itself, is that straight Blender or do you use any helpul addons/plugins?

I did not model any of this. Some free models from this
places —



Another model from the net.

Another try. Render a little noisy.

Some times I like to experiment with the hdri’s
that im making. I use a free photo editor that
works nice for HDRI also. The software is
free and has a strange name. Its very professional
, I think. Get it here …

Trying out some materials.

Nice, how do you setup the camera to have the right fisheye lens for hdri?

Here are the camera settings I’ve been using.
In the beginning, I was making my HDRI’s with Cycles rending but I
changed to Radeon Prorender because I do not have the GPU’S for
Cycles. I only have the AMD graphic cards and much faster for me.

Made another hdri and giving it a test run for a ring from
the net.
