  1. Hey, whats that thing with hdri maps in houdini? They always look ugly. one side is heavily overexposed and the other side too dark. Doesnt really matter if I use .hdr, rat or exr files. How the hell is it ossible to correctly light with hdrs in houdini?This image is lit with this hdr: https://cg-source.com/details_hdrisky.php?id=0066-01&pricat=sky
  2. Hi there, I got the problem that HDRI images I want to load into houdini never look like they should. Pretty much always heavily overexposed. Can't bring it back in a cops environment so is there some other way to import them correctly?
  3. Hi, I have an HDRI image that I want to use as a background plate and compose a 3d object into the HDRI scene and match the lighting of that 3d object. But I am unable to do so properly, adding the HDRI to a plane/Grid is useless and adding it on a sphere is not very useful. How can I use an HDRI as a backplate or will I require a non-HDRI for backplate? If so, is there any option to map a portion of HDRI onto a plane/grid and then use it as backplate? Please help. Thanks.
