Vray HDRI Viewer

2 votes

Vray HDRI Viewer is a simple and quick way of getting your HDRI's into your scene. Please note that for every HDRI the viewer requires an equivalent jpg file sized at 1000x500. I will be releasing a photoshop action to make this a little easier.

To intstal, use the maxscript menu > run script. You will then find it in "Catagory > shawvfx"

HDR dome light for max 2009

37 votes

I have modified the amazing script HDR dome light from Chris Subagio and now it works in Max 2009;
also, I have added some new features, and now it works OK if you link it to a moving object.

It uses Spot lights with Shadow Map, so it´s very fast, about 7 seconds the renders I have attached
in a Quad Q6600 2´4Ghz.

But it has a little problem: if there are many dome lights in the same scene linked to many moving
objects, the global illumination has changes along the time, with brighter and darker frames.

This is not always, only sometimes.
