Image based lights quickly add highly realistic environmental lighting to your scene.
Image-based lights use the information stored in High Dynamic Range images (HDRI) to create realistic atmospheric lighting in your scene. BRIO's selection includes studio HDRIs, which simulate photography studio lighting; as well as sky lights, which reflect different indoor and outdoor settings.
To add image-based light:
- Select the "Light Set" item in the objects panel. The right-hand panel will switch to display light set options.
- Select "Current image-based light" to open the HDR library.
- Select a light options and select "close".
- Click the "Upload" button if you would like to add your own HDRI.
The intensity of the reflection will depend on the materials in your scene and pixel brightness in your HDRI image.
