How to Create Dome Lights With Substance 3D Sampler

Learn how to take photos and build a custom HDR dome light with them.

In a new first-step tutorial from the Adobe Substance 3D team, you can discover how to create a custom dome light that you can make yourself. The tutorial shows how to take the proper bracketed photographs of a real-life environment captured on location and convert those into an HDR skydome or light dome image that you can use in your favorite DCC.

The tutorial shows how to use a primary 360° camera like the Ricoh Theta, but you can also follow along using the project files here.
