HDRi or High Dynamic Range images are used to create highly realistic looking 3D rendered scenes as both a lighting and reflection source. Used in the production of any kind of 3D rendering, the HDRi process “captures” the lighting conditions in a location with a much higher dynamic range than a traditional photograph or backplate can achieve. Typically our HDRi maps are spherical panoramas of up 16000 x 8000 pixels that contains up to 12 exposures ranging from underexposed to overexposed. This Spherical HDRi image can then be used within 3D rendering packages to recreate the exact lighting conditions of the original location.

Combined with a matching or similar photographic backplate or backdrop, the HDRi map or HDRi Dome can be used for example in automotive rendering for print or screen advertising work.

Panocapture produces HDRi environment maps, photographic backplates, automotive backgrounds, street and urban photography and environments using a professional full frame camera, panoramic heads, computerised remotes and car mounted camera rigs to capture the most accurate and varied environments.
