Making of a Night Scene with HDRI (or A Sky Bitmap)

 I made a night scene tutorial based on my work-flow from my latest project. During my test renders, I found out that HDRI is a very powerful tool. I would like to share to you the product of my simple experiment. First we need to download an HDRI image of a sunset. 

Here I used the Barcelona Rooftops (
that was shared to us Nomeradona under free stuff section. I suggest you download it first before we start.

Next is we set up our scene. No lights yet, and just use your basic vray settings. I also found out that most of our settings for exterior will work.

Hit render and you will see something like this... A basic scene render.

Now we just add the VrayHDRI to the Environment Override on your vray settings.

We will get something like this. Notice that the color of the scene has changed, this is due to the effect of the HDRI image to the scene. We can now feel the mood or the ambience.

Then we add lights, both fill lights and spotlights using vraylight (sphere) and IES light with web information of (ies-nice or 02).

And we have this now... almost done.

And finally, Add trees, cars, etc to complete the scene. Adjust in photoshop the colors or any mood you want to achieve

    I tend not to write a bunch of remarks, but i
    did some searching and wound up here "Making of a Night Scene with HDRI (or A Sky Bitmap)".
    And I actually do have some questions for you if you do not mind.
    Could it be only me or does it seem like a few of the remarks look like they are left by brain dead
    folks? :-P And, if you are posting at additional online social sites, I would
    like to follow anything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list of
    the complete urls of your public sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
