The Skydome HDRI -brand is a collection of high-dynamic range images, which displays only the sky-portion of an outdoor setting. Usually the qualities selected under the brand are cloudy and detailed skies. The lighting-condition is natural exterior lighting, with no artificial sources, and captures all spheres of natural lighting.


Few sunset clouds captured in high detail for image based lighting. Only top half of the HDRI-sphere is shot, so if using for example VrayLight with Dome-setting enabled, leave the “Spherical: full-dome” unchecked.


Massive resolution of 12580×3013 allows the sky to be rendered directly from the viewport with considerable detail (tested with up to 8000 pixel wide renders.)


18 megapixel processed backplates (distortion straightened from the 8mm Samyang fisheye lens images) included for better compositing freedom.

It might be confused as to what in actuality the HDR-images are used. They are used in variety of 3D-formats to produce physically accurate lighting (to recreate the lighting conditions present in the scene which from panorama was shot), for variety of purposes. I could say the most used target is to achieve lifelike light conditions to architectural renders, but also for your fantastic 3D-scenes where you want to breathe a bit of life into the images, to bring them from merely ordinary 3D-renders to the hyperrealm domain.

Note: The backplates provided are based on the images taken with the 8mm Samyang, which are then processed to remove the excessive curvature done by the lens.
