But actually, this workflow is MUCH easier than you might have thought. I promise.
After watching this step-by-step guide, you'll get the super powers to crush the image-based lighting in Blender.

Environment artist at TT Fusion working on titles such as Lord of the rings and mostly a whole load of Lego games :
Lego Hobbit etc.
Freelanced working on music videos, teamed up with CG Masters to create Blender tutorials. The Blender foundation got in touch for me to create them to Blender Cloud and Steam I released a Blender game asset creation course. Teamed up with Gleb Alexandrov from Creative Shrimp to release a SpaceVFX course for Blender.
Now there are many things on the go, notably an urge to develop game creation skills more deeply in Unreal Engine 4, noodlings and doodlings of that ilk will emerge via vertStretch
