Shrinking hdri / unshrinking world
show user profile  herfst1
Hey, sounds like a dumb question (to me, at least) but say you have an hdri that appears roughly 10 times too magnified for your scene, how would you fix this?

I checked the vrayhdri material settings and didn't see any options (which makes sense, I suppose).

I tried scaling my model 10,000 percent (roughly), didn't make any difference.

I tried playing with the camera zoom, but didn't get anything close to what I'm after.

I can, of course, choose a different hdri but I would prefer to find out how to fix this. Cheers in advance.

Scaling and zooming makes no difference to an HDRI (obviously). Can you change the camera's FOV?

Can we see the HDRI file?

Shame, I came to the same conclusion, was just hoping/wondering whether there was an easy solution.

The HDRI in question came from the link digs posted
It wasn't a perfect background but I've had this problem before and was hoping for more control.

Thanks for the confirmation that it's not just me being dumb.

Can't you manipulate the HDRI in PS to be closer to what you want ?

Yes, but I am rendering an animation, would be a pain in the arse to sync. It's not really a big deal, been downloading other hdri's, on will work. And worst case scenario, only use it for lighting and reflections, screw the background.
