HDRI problem/feedback
show user profile  Justin101
Hey all,

I have been experimenting with HDRI maps and am getting some great results for dusk lighting.
The only problem is corner shadows. I have the sun in the HDRI map sitting right behind my house giving no direct sunlight on the front which is how I like it, however the corners are insanely dark.
Below is an example of what I mean.

Can anyone recommend some setting to play with in order to tone down these shaded corners?
I am using 3ds max 2015, Vray 3.0, irradiance map, brute force, reinhard colour mapping.

1. try linear color mapping
2. you can also increase the gamma output to lessen the intensity of the light/dark areas of ur hdri if using a vrayhdri map
