Thanks Guys for looking it over
Thanks for your interest in my collection I set as Environment with hdr. file and modify the settings. There is wrap but not with an hdr. file. I used one Point,Ambient,Directional light and material that I created from the Material Palette if look in the white colored pot image youâ€™ll see a slight trace of a building windows in other larger dark blue youâ€™ll see a refection also.
My goal was not to over power the image with the hdr. file but leave small trace enough for sheen to a glossed look. My objective with this project was to go for a Porcelain look when I first design it found the dull look was unimpressive. As for lights using a few less lights allows me to render faster. The gold color rings are wrapped also .I was going to make rope shaped rings but thought to myself it probably consume to much CPU usage and lag in the render mode so I abandoned that thought.
The one thing I forgot to do was apply Radoisity so this was render is with Full rendering capability. I did set the ACIS with a custom setting avoiding any flat line Facets. They are solids. With regards to your question Do HDR image wraps pick up lighting better? In some cases it does.
I had large white spot of light coming down on the surface of the white pot which means the light could use a new location and light color shade. I didnâ€™t apply Luminance from its palette I havenâ€™t experiment with exr,lrw,bmp,png, files yet but mostly with jpeg,tif,hdr.I prefer the latter because there smaller in kb size the spot of lights you see on the surface was intentional based around another artistâ€™s rendering examples I used from his images .
In the long run I didnâ€™t want to have to many things going on with this file in case it became corrupt or do crash. My objective was for a total different look that hasnâ€™t been brought to the Gallery yet something a little different.
