  • Features:

  • Set scene for linear workflow
  • Basic setup of render globals
  • Create render layers (background, shadow, reflection, object) for compositing
  • Can create sun light as additional light

This V-Ray for Maya script helps you with setting your scene up for rendering your object with the help of an hdri.

It creates a dome light and configures the render globals and makes all necessary connections and when enabling the sun light you have also the possibility to specify the shadow softness.

You can also let it create render layers that split the scene up into a background, shadow and an object layer for later compositing.

In the script field you can specify commands that will be executed after setting up the scene to automatically set default settings. For example: setAttr “vraySettings.sys_regsgen_xc” 32;

This sets the render region devision to 32 pixel.

HDRI-Hubs main goal is to provide you with super high resolution hdri images and architectural textures.
Often textures you find in the internet are way too small for really close up work, so we like to produce them in this outstanding quality.

Most of our textures are at least 4096x4096px large or even bigger and the hdri environments are around 10240x5120px. On custom request many of the skies can be reproduced at even larger resolution.
