Have you ever tried to render your favorite character or model in front of a background image? How come it always looks 'pasted on' or fake? The answer is that you`re not matching the lighting (and reflections) with the background image. This set of scene files solves that issue by including both a matching light set and reflection map!
You`re probably asking, 'Why can`t I just use an IBL light set?' After extensive research (okay, after I made a few renders), I found that a single IBL light source doesn't provide the 'depth' and soft shadows that a set of multiple lights creates.
* Includes six scenes files with a background image, matching light set, and matching reflection map.
-Three road scenes
-Three beach scenes
* Each scene file includes:
-Background images at 1600x1200 pixels
-The Poser Document window is 800x600, but can resize it as needed.
-Matching reflection maps at 800x300 pixels.
-Matching light set, which has been further 'tuned' to cast shadows in the same direction as the background image.
-Render settings designed to balance optimal reflections and speedy rendering.
-Poser ball prop with a reflective metallic shader: just copy and paste this material to your metal material and you're all set. (The ball prop has an xTrans value of 10, which places it out of the camera`s range.)
Simply open the scene file, add your figure(s), and render!
-These images can be used for commercial images.
-These scene files were designed for use in Poser 5 and above, and have not been tested in DAZ Studio.
