Calling all on set VFX artists! Stop what you are doing and read this now!
So as we know, when you are working on set as a Visual Effects artist, we have an exrtremely limited amount of time to get what what need and move onto another shot!
How many times do we NEED to capture HDRI's for re-lighting a scene in 3d? Pretty much all the time, if we can, in order to get proper reflection and lighting information! Are you ready to get rid of your mirror balls!?
You have 2 Options!
PHOTOSYNTH - Free
360 PANO - $4
Photo Synth is free but we find that the results reflect that.
Like with most things, you get what you pay for, We love the results from 360 Pano
Step 1 - Download 360 PANO or PHOTOSYNTH from the App Store.
Step 2 - Start Capturing your 360 Panorama!
Step 3 - Clean up in Photoshop/Nuke
Step 4 - Apply to your Image Based Lighting Sphere

This is an awesome app if you are an onset VFX artist, or a 1 man army looking to get onset data QUICK!
