Cool Coolest thing ever, Half-life in real life

This is called HDR Lighting, and anyone with a camera and a relativly fast computer can make this.














All you need is:

A digital camera

A reflective sphere (which you see in a few photos) to capture the lighting of the real-life scene which you want to composite your model into.

A small program called HDRShop.

Big program called 3D Studio Max.

and finally you need a good renderer such as VRay.

Then of course you need the tools to get HL2 models into 3dsmax: GFScape, a HL2 Model importer, and a texuture and model converter

Tutorial http://www.debevec.org/HDRShop/main-...tutorials.html



And here's a Rar file for the hl2 tools that those images were created with

Actually, I can lick my own dick; however, I'd rather have other people do it for me. Anyone care for a lick?
