Epic Skydomes - Mystical Island Cave 16K HDRI

Epic Skydomes - Mystical Island Cave 16K HDRI

The easiest and fastest way to create an epic scene in Iray: Use a Skydome, and create the illusion of a ground plane under your object by utilizing its shadows. It’s the oldest trick in the book. But it can work remarkably well. And it renders blazingly fast---literally in seconds!

Say hello to the second installment of the “Epic Skydomes” HDRI environment series: Mystical Island Cave---a fantasy-like canvas of eye-popping color and natural forms. Wherever you turn your camera within this Skydome, there is always something to look at. Whether it’s the beautiful sunset, the crisp realistic sand and beach, the golden palm trees glistening in the light, or the lofty moss-covered rocks, this Skydome has it all in one 360 degree package. And did I mention it is 16K? Wow, talk about super-crisp and detailed! (Not to mention speedy renders!)

Plus setup is simple. Just load your object/character into the scene, position the water ripple underneath it, resize the volumetric light box around it, and rotate camera as needed to “position” your object relative to the Skydome (User Guide included).
