Clipped Sun info
For the moment the DS360° HDR Skies - 30k ( XXL ) have clipped suns.
A extra handy option is the NoSun the availability of a NoSun EXR. With this version you have a clean sun area where a unclipped sun can be added. For example, the commercial versions of Dutch Free 360° HDR – 024 have a NoSun EXR on board.
There will eventually be unclipped version only the release time frame is unclear. After releasing a unclipped version your upgrade will be free when you have a License.
Customers who already have a official License will be notified through the back-office of this online shop ( a mail will be sended automatically after uploading a update to the back-office of this website ) with the news about a new version or the availability & direct downloads of a unclipped sun version for example.
On schedule for later this this year are 19 ( brand new ) DS360° HDR Skies - 30k ( XXL ). Those will be released in random order. Like Dutch Free 360° HDR – 024 there will be for every sky the option to buy 10k, 20k or 30k versions only no free versions.
You can have a quick look on those 19 Skies just checkout Dutch Skies 360° HDR - On-Demand Service. You can see preview renders on the bottom of that page.
The plan is to publish also 30k versions of all current skies ( *) except the 11k HDR Skies ) that are already published in the store. To be honest that can take "a bit" more time.
