HDR Lighting in Maya

HDR Lighting in Maya using HDR Shop, and the LightGen Plugin: The barebones approach to quickly get started with HDR lighting


First thing's first, you'll need to download a free copy of HDR Shop from Paul Debevec's HDR Shop page. (Click on Download v1) You'll also need the "LightGen" Plugin found under the Plugins section of his website.

Create a directory on your computer called "plugins" in the same directory as HDRShop.exe. Copy the file "lightgen_plugin.exe" that you just downloaded, into this directory. When you start HDR Shop, the option "lightgen_plugin" should appear in the "Plugins" menu.
