HDRI 360 Panoramas are a very optimized way to design stunning scenes in Unreal Engine 5, without the need of 3d assets which are extremely expensive for the GPU. You get a skybox blueprint, a skybox/panorama material and 29 material instances which will help you adjust different properties of the skybox/Aurora Borealis panorama.

The HDRI s (Cubemaps) from this pack, can also be used to create realistic Aurora Borealis specific lighting into your scene. In this case, the Cubemaps have to be used with the Sky Light (instead of using Real Time skylight, You can turn off Real Time Capture and replace it with one of the Cubemaps from this pack). This is a very simple and efficient way to create customized and interesting beautiful and unique lighting setups in UE5.
