Hopefully one day Corona will have the option to add linear and radial graduated filters in the frame buffer, in addition to the new and improved vignetting that is on it's way. Until then, I've been experimenting with making a 'real' virtual linear grad that sits in front of your camera lens.


I'm sure you have all seen Santi Sanchez's brilliant megascans tutorial on Ronen Bekerman's website by now, if not : Making of METEORA

Santi was kind enough to let me re-publish them here, and the details of which sky he used (including camera settings and sky rotation!) are on the making-of.

0743 Cloudy Morning Sun Update

I've been doing a bit of PG SKIES maintenance and thought I would update one of my favourites, 0743 Cloudy Morning Sun. In this update there are several versions of the HDR; the original, plus two with a new sun intensity. Try them all and use the one that suits your scene best is the official advice!

Here is a comparison of them, all at gamma 1.0

And also a 360 panorama, as its a great way of seeing the whole sky.

New Skies 1216 and 1324

2 new skies added to today, both going to be very useful in my humble opinion!
