Hello, guys, this is my first ever tutorial in dev forum, and also my main language is not English, so there will be some grammar mistake but ok.
Alright in this tutorial I’m gonna show you how to convert HDRI to SKYBOX. Like you all know HDRI got some pretty good scenery that gonna fit in you environment design.
First of all, we gonna go to some free HDRI site to get some good HDRI to convert it. I recommend you guys go to this site https://hdrihaven.com/hdris/?c=night since everything in here is free to use, oh also if u want to support them u can join their Patreon.
I’m gonna use this HDRI has an example in this toturial but it up to you to choose which one that fits in you game
after you that go to download tabs and choose 8k because if u choose something below it, it gonna be so blurry lol
After you download the HDRI, what you need to do next is gonna go to this site
So how this work, it gonna make you HDRI into cube map which is gonna be look something like this
Look cool right?
After you in there click on this
And then choose HDRI you download
And it is gonna be look something like this
Oh you also can adjust the exposure to make it look wow in my case I’m gonna keep it at 8.95
After that click
This one important there will be tree layout and what layout you need to choose is this one
The one with the arrow
Click it and wait for the process
After the proses done click save
You will get some file like this and what you need to do is extract it.
AFTER THIS ALL WHAT YOU NEED TO DO IS GO TO YOU ROBLOX STUDIO FOR UPLOADING IT
Click on the asset manager
Click this icon
Click the file that you just extract and click all the image
After that click open and wait for Roblox to approve you picture
After it been approved
Go to properties and remove all skybox texture expect Moon Texture And Sun Texture
The next part is a little tricky, so I wound advice you to take seriously on this part.
When you import it, you gonna get a name like this
Alright let me tell you what all the name mean
NX means Negative X or -X
NY mean Negative Y or -Y
NZ mean Negative Z or -Z
PY mean Positive Y or +Y
PZ mean Positive Z or +Z
So on this part what you need to do is put NX, NY, NZ, PY and PZ into the SKY texture
Here where it all goes
BK = NX
DN = NY
FT = PX
LF = NZ
RT = PZ
UP = PY
AND HERE YOU GO THE RESULT FOR IT
Idk why it looks so blurry, but if someone knows, please tell me how I can fix this
So that all for this toturial I would like to thank to
