Render with IBL (image based lighting) and HDRI in maya

With this video tutorial you will learn the techniques to create shadows under an object with a photorealistic image in the background (IBL) or HDRI. This technique allows you to get very realistic renders in maya and mental ray because the reflections coming from a picture and not from a monocromatic light. The IBL (HDR) is used mainly for redering cars, or small objects such watches, lighters, statues and more. Watch this video tutorial for Maya to learn on a IBL types of lighting more realistic.

Another aspect of global illumination in computer graphics is the use of image-based lighting (IBL) to achieve realistic lighting by referring to a specific environment.
This process literally enables you to take a "snapshot" of an environment and reproduce the same qualities of light in your renders by using radiosity, Final Gathering like a CG environment. Any image can be used for image-based lighting, but to truly reproduce the full range of values, you will need to use high dynamic range images (360° HDRI) for your IBL. HDRI images can represent a wider range of values than video or even film. Essentially, an HDR image is a single file with multiple exposures built into it to accommodate the huge range that natural light can have.
