New HDRI Studio Pack V1.5 Coming Soon – With New Flicker Free GI for Animation Presets 46 Comments


I have been working on adding flicker free animation presets to the upcoming HDRI Studio Pack V1.5. Many of you have asked how to get clean, fast rendering HDRI renders, and I’m excited to finally get this out soon. I’m hoping to launch it tonight or tomorrow morning. In the mean time, take a look at some animated Lego carnage lit and rendered with HDRI Studio Pack and the new Flicker Free GI Presets.

    • Those weird shadows are also artifacts from GI renders. You won’t have those with the presets either. Can’t wait to show more tomorrow.

    Excellent!!

    I was hoping the Lego men were going to explode right near the end. As if that first Lego man had dynamite strapped to his body.

  6. You are a Godsend. This is just in time for us. We’ve been struggling all month with the Flickr issue thinking we were doing something wrong.

  7. This is both flicker-free and hilarious. I especially love the quicksand-like nature of the Lego men sinking into each other.

  8. Haha…. I purchased the studio pack a while ago and started to do my first project (animation) in january, where I used the Studio Pack. I was wondering why the textures were flickering and didn’t found a solution…

    So.. thank you very much for this information. Can’t wait to finish my thing… :)

    Brilliant!
    Although I work at a company doing 3D animations, I bought this (in the full bundle) myself cause I didn’t think I could convince the company to buy it for me. But yesterday when my boss saw my new lighting renders he insisted our other artist get a copy too, so all our stuff is that nice. :)

      From what was said before, this will be a free upgrade for people who’ve bought a previous version. But it’s not released yet, so we’ve got to hold on a bitty :)

    Thanks Nick.. I tried to recreate the lego guy scene, but I can’t seem to pile them up like the vid. They keep sliding away, I even surrounded the scene with a static object.. I’ll keep playing around.

  17. Oh wow. I love this so much! Do you have a model of the lego figure for download or a link? I could do it myself tbh but its usually quicker to get a free one and modify it! :P

      The Lego Guy, yet another freebie from Nick, I believe it’s still free in the models area.

    Hi Nick,
    Thank’s for the great update! I’m also struggling with recreating a similar pile of objects like the Legopile you made. Just can’t get the dynamics to look as realistic as yours. I think many of us asking here the same question about the dynamics don’t need a whole tutorial of it, just a clue ;)

    Thank’s!

    BR, Kasimir

  21. I to could watch forever. Good work. I am new to c4d and i have given exactly the same thing a go but my objects are bouncing and spinning all over the place. I’ve tried to dampen them down but there are still a few that go spinning out of control. Any suggestions/tutorials. Cheers.

    I’m having problems with flickering and texture bugs using HDRI 1.5. I’m pre-caching GI and using NET Render. I’m starting to wonder if this studio pack works with Net Render. Has anyone had any success using Nick’s HDRI studio kit 1.5 with Net Render? I love the still results, I’m just not having good experience rendering animations (I’m using the presets in the Studio pack).

    Thanks!
