Introducing the HDRI Sky Timelapse - Vol. 2: April Full Day, a collection of 840 ultra high dynamic range EXR frames designed to capture the beauty of a full spring day right in the center of Europe, with real-life stars and moon at the end and beginning!
Including select ultra high-res stills in 32k and two tonemapped jpg sequences!
The HDRI sequence is carefully crafted to provide a smooth, photorealistic, and high resolution timelapse with a sunny and crisp sky from sunrise to sunset. Craft into your renderings the beauty of spring in life-like clarity with this awesome asset.
This amazing 32bit high dynamic range exr image sequence in 9k resolution captures a sunny sky for photorealistic lighting in CGI renderings. Whether you're creating a scene for a television commercial or an archviz video, this is the sky timelapse for you: It features a beautiful sunrise as well as sunset in 840 frames with a spectacular sunny setting but still beautiful clouds and intense colors.
- High Resolution: 9k
- High Dynamic Range: 32bit, unclipped, extremely high dynamic range
- Photorealistic clouds: formation and movement based on real-life data
- High-Dynamic range stars and moon, based on real-life data
- Timelapse: 840 EXR sequence frames
- Ultra high resolution stills: Select frames in 32k resolution
- Realistic sun movement: based on real-life data on an April day in Berlin
- Tonemapped versions: LDR sequences in 2 different moods as background
EXRs are compressed via DWAB compression, so the total sequence is only 2.66gb in size and very light to load since one frame is only between 350kb and 6.4mb large, with no negative visual impact!
Dont worry about the any black horizon lines in your renderings since the horizon is leveled down and intentionally has a luminance and color cast from the sky.
This timelapse is created with the V-Ray 6 sun and cloud system and further tweaked and enhanced in After Effects. If you own V-Ray 6 you probably do not need to buy this product, although it will save you time to look up sun angle and movement throughout a day, probable cloud speed etc. and my color enhancement process to have a further unique look.
Check it out, send me your renderings or tag me to let me know and please do give me feedback so I can improve and help you make greater renderings!
v.1.5: tonemapped jpg sequence of the star-addition added
v1.4: This update adds stars and moon in high dynamic range for beautiful night-sky frames at the beginning and end, sizes, position and movements based on real-life data. Tonemapped versions will follow. So excited about this addition. Let me know what you think!
v1.3: I added two different tonemapped jpg versions of the sequence, which can be used as a LDR background. One version is very close to the original sequence, the other differs a little bit and has a more airy feel during the day and a little bit more drama towards the beginning and end of the day.
v1.2: Added even more Highres renderings (not yet color adjusted to fit the sequence) now 10 in total
v1.1.: Added overview PDF
