Image-based Lighting

Image-based lighting (IBL) is the process of illuminating scenes and objects with a representation of light information from the real world.
High Dynamic Range (HDR) images are combined with Illumination to create incredibly realistic light simulations in your scene.

Alternatively, has nearly 20 HDR environment maps to choose from, which can be applied by visiting the Material Library > HDR Environments in the Editor.
