Blender add-on: Environment Brute Force

Environment Brute Force – the Blender add-on for searching for the best lighting for the scene by iterating through the number of environment images.

Getting the best lighting for your scene

  • Specify the directory with environment images,
  • set a number of frames for the single image,
  • enable brute-forcing,
  • start to play or render timeline animation.

All environment images from the specified directory will be consistently applied to the scene. Every image in its frames diapason will be rotated at a certain angle to turn 360 degrees totally.

The animation render (by ctrl + f12) results in an image sequence of the scene with different types of environments with different angles of lighting.

Output file names appended with the currently used environment image name and its current rotation angle.
