IBL by Xuan Prada

In this professional course, you will learn how to create and use HDRI and Light Rigs based on Image Based Lighting for visual effects projects.

All the steps necessary to complete a lighting plan… LEER + >


BDVFX is the only Academy throughout the world that gathers not only two of the sole twenty V-Ray Mentors existing, but two Corona Primary Instructors. As an authorized center by Chaos Group, BDVFX has the capability to certify in V-Ray and Corona guaranteeing the legitimacy of their certifications.
Moreover, the Workstation features most advanced available for the students in the Academy will let them gain experience the fastest and optimized way. Our computers are equipped with Dual monitors, Intel Xeon Scalable processors and Quadro graphics cars and a pair of Geforce 1070Ti GPU.



We will take captures to collect the information needed to create panoramic HDRI maps on the film set. This project will be oriented as if it were a simulation of a real life request by a fictitious client.


We will learn how to plan correctly all the material needed to finish and polish the project successfully.


We will set a detailed breakdown, stopping at each step explaining it extensively. Also, the teacher will share multiple visual examples and exclusive materials to supplement the action plan.


In the last stage of the course, the teacher will guide the students during the whole definitive image compositing process.


We follow the learning by doing methodology.
