Street View for 3D Environment Reflections

Jamie Cardoso posts a look into using Google Street View to help you get relevant reflective environments for your 3D renders. Using a tool called StreetView Grabber, Jamie shows how you can create panoramic images using material swiped from Google Street View.

Jamie covers getting and using the Street View Grabber tool, and also shows how to process the images for a 3D environment. Once the panoramic images are created, Jamie covers how to use them in renders with both V-Ray and Mental Ray.

Check out Jamie’s post for Google maps to StreetView Grabber for the complete article and tutorial.
