RAW HDRI Test Data 1002


Here is the RAW data (CR2) for a 360 panoramic HDRI shot with a Canon 5DS, 8mm fisheye lens and a Ninja Nodal. For this shoot, 4 positions were captured every 90 degrees and from above and below, along with a grey ball, chrome ball and a Macbeth chart for colour accuracy. You can use this data to set up your own colour pipeline and workflow for processing HDRIs. We are documenting our workflow here (which is still a WIP):

The data set was captured at Southsea Castle one sunny afternoon. For each position, 7 brackets were taken at 2 stops apart. The images are 5792 x 8688 in size. It is a chunky dataset (around 3gigs) so give it time to download.

File Format: CR2

Support World Wildlife Foundation

Here at CAVE Academy the beauty of giving and sharing is very close to our hearts. With that spirit, we gladly provide Masterclasses, Dailies, and the Wiki free of charge. It is also of great importance to us that we support the wider community and this pale blue dot that we all call home, therefore, all proceeds from this course will be donated to the WWF Adopt an Animal Fund.

There is a minimum donation of £2 but please feel free to donate as much as you like.
