Do you usually prefer studio lighting for your stuff, indoor ones or atmospheric nature shit?
>>
Studio. But custom light rigs >>> HDRIs.

custom light objects/rigs, IES lights for architectural work
>>
>>694224
This pretty much. When I'm working on a model I usually use a studio hdri to see how reflections and stuff plays off of it, but when going for final stuff I do custom lighting.

What's wrong with custom light rigs + HDRI?
In my experience having a reaaaaaaaally slight HDRI running smoothes out things a lot and makes things look way better.
>>
when you use HDRI do you have to add custom lights to match the lights on the map? Like the sun or studio lights?
>>
>>694262
Sometimes. I often add a sun lamp in roughly the same position as the sun in the HDRI to get crisper shadows, or better control over them.
>>
>>694265
how do you get shadows at all without lights?
>>
>>694266
If you ask about when only using an HDRI, areas of high luminosity in the picture will act as lights and cast shadows accordingly.
>>
>>694267
but how do you add a ground plane into the render or should everything be floating?
>>
>>694273
halp

>>694273
What exactly do you want to achieve?
>>
>>694296
i want the object to look like its rooted and sitting on the ground instead of floating in space...

At a job some years ago I used this tool that converted HDRIs into full light rigs at the press of a button, can't remember the name, also never used it again.
