SOLIDWORKS Tech Tip – Adjusting the HDRI Settings


Using an HDRI is a quick and easy way to add detailed lighting to a scene. Many times, it’s all you need to light a great scene – why struggle setting up individual lights? Of course you can do that, too, but often times, simple is better. Visualize ships with a variety of HDRIs and there are even more available on the Visualize Cloud Library. If none of those work for your exact situation, you can adjust the settings to better suit your exact needs. In this week’s Visualize Quick Tip, we’ll cover Visualize’s HDRI settings so that you can get the most out of your HDRI.
