(1/3) > >>


Hello Corona Comunity, I want to share a Scripted Plugin tool to control your HDRI files and backplates within 3Ds max fully.

HDR Total Control for Corona allows you to Set up and control HDRI files and backplates for lighting your scenes with a dedicated, intelligent UI with collapsable menus to avoid interference with your menu workflow.


* Collapsable Menus and dialog...
* Preview HDRI file Easily...*(Base on a pre-built preview image or automate preview generation based on the file exposure info)
* Control your HDRI Exposure, Temperature, Color Saturation... and More
* Rotate, Flip, Change HDR Mapping with Ease...
* Apply Bakcplate, Infinity plane and Shadow Catcher automatically...
* Save and load all options by scene Automaticallly...

Hope you guys like it, any comments, critics, and/or suggestions are more than welcome.

You can find the the utility HERE . If you have any questions you can DM directly in the Forum or you can use the following Contact information.
