This older image collection has been enhanced from the original collection. Digital cameras have advanced leaps and bounds over the years, as have LCD monitors capable of more accurate colour and brightness depiction. Our own skill in putting these panoramas together have also increased from over 10 years of experience. We spent weeks remastering these images, scouring every pixel to find every possible artifact.

Remastered skies feature:

  • Sun aligned. No need to swap skies and rotate your image around to match sun position
  • Reduced or eliminated banding
  • Noise reduction (in special Filtered folders, in case you prefer some grain)
  • Resized for hemispherical dimensions
  • Downsized for decreased pixel size
  • Removed all horizon elements
  • Reduced or removed lens flares, hot pixels, birds, seams, etc
  • Added black lower half for easy spherical environment integration

Weather and Time of Day

Hyperfocal sky textures include a wide range of times of day and weather conditions to suit any scene. Hyperfocal Skies are mappable onto a hemisphere, cylinder or background. Provided in 24 bit RGB, High Quality JPEG format and compatible with any 2d or 3d package.
