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

    Description:
    HDR Total Control for Corona, allows you to Set up and control HDRI files and backplates for lighting your scenes with a dedicated smart UI menu that can be collapsed and expanded to avoid any interference with your menu workflow.

    Features:
    • Collapsable Menus and dialog...*(Limitations with Scaled Displays due to the 3Dsmax UI )
    • 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...

    Hello Surealismo,

    This option is not integrated into the plugin yet but sounds like a really good Feature for the next update, I would look into this to find the best solution for your request.

    Thanks

    Hello Alex,

    Thanks for reaching out, I tried to answer your email but I got a delivery issue several times, yes our plugin runs down to 3Ds max 2014, that is the oldest version Corona Render support unofficially.

    Hello Gabiru, Thanks for your interest, Unfortunately, every license is unique and linked to your email and system, if you want to use it on more than one PC you will need to request a new license for each system you want to use the plugin with.
