Is it normal this level of overexposed Iray render with an only Headlight lamp on camera (and dome)?

  • I think most turn off the headlight lamp(s) and use other lighting choices.

    There are exposure controls in Render Settings>Tonemapping. Experiment with different settings until you find something that looks good.

    Yes, still I don't really understand why the "default" headlight is so high, if I lower it I can't see anything in the viewport and otherwise renders are totally burned.

    That did the trick. Thank you both, guys.

     After you turn the camera Headlamp off, turn on the Preview light with <ctrl>-L — it looks the same in the Viewport, but will not render. This lets you see what you're doing even if the scene's overall lighting setup that looks great in the render doesn't show up well in the Viewport.

    Glad to help. We were all beginners once, and a lot of "paying it forward" goes on in this forum.
