Take a look at this fantastic tool that lets you create .EXR image files for your 3D software like Maya or Blender. It's a real game-changer when it comes to setting up your lighting quickly and easily!
So, here's what you need to do:
First, download Nvidia Canvas from Nvidia's official website – here's the link: Nvidia Canvas
Once you've got it installed, open it up and select the panorama option. Now, with your canvas all set, you can choose the material you want to paint. The best part is that you only need to sketch out some basic shapes, and the GPU's magic will work its wonders, creating a high-resolution, photorealistic rendering of your artwork. How cool is that?
You can also adjust the style to match your preferences and use a slider to get the look you desire. Additionally, you can paint different materials on separate layers, streamlining your creative process.
Once your masterpiece is complete, export your .EXR image to your favorite 3D software that supports environment lighting. In my case, I'm using Maya with a Skydome light. It's like putting the finishing touch on your work of art. Enjoy the creative journey!
