Do you want to improve your lighting for automotive renderings and product shots instantly? This collection of hand-made real-life based gradient HDRs is for you! Just plug one of these extremely high-dynamic-range HDRs into your virtual light and build your perfect photorealistic lighting - in any rendering engine, like VRED, V-Ray, Corona, Octane.

With a resolution of 3000x3000px you will have enough detail even for close-ups with visible reflections and a mind-blowing dynamic range of approx 15-22 EV stops. There are always two variants of the same gradient: one perfect and one imperfect. The imperfect one features more hotspots, paper-textures and uneven areas, which would natuarlly occurr in a real-life photo-studio. If you prefer really perfect gradients, just use those. They are still based on real-life lights and gradients so they still have some detail that you would not get if you would create gradients procedurally in your 3D or 2D application.

Don´t use your lights without HDRs in them - perfect white lights don´t exist in the real world!

I put a lot of love, work and thought into each gradient. If you have any requests, suggestions or critique, please let me know and I will improve the ones I did or add new ones. If you like this collection, please rate it 5 stars to support me and have more time to create more awesome products to support you in your work!

Why use these gradients instead of using e.g. a V-Ray Softbox, a gradient ramp, the Gradient Lights from Maverick Renderer etc? 

  1. Its fast: you dont need to setup any custom gradient maps, you dont need to create or tweak anything

  2. The small imperfections make them more photorealistic and give detail to your rendering

  3. If you are working in VRED, you need external textures to use gradients in your renderings - these are ready to use and as diverse as you need them

Release Notes

Sorry for the long wait - private and work life kept me so long from completing this collection, but I am finally content and ready to release version 1!

I added more gradient HDRis - now you have 80 in total! 40 gradients in two variations: perfect and imperfect

Plus: I added a few variations of a HDR studio-lighting panorama, that you can use for devlook or even final production! It is the lighting I used to create the whiskey visual.


Please let me know if you are missing any content or if you are unhappy about certain textures and I will be happy to fix them or add new ones so that you are happy about my assets!
