Ive just spent some time modeling a car and wanna use mental ray and a HDRI

Ive got a car model, a basic scene, lights, HDR image, and mental ray all ready in Maya.

First of all, how do i set up a HDR image in maya? do i link the image to the render globals, material, mental ray material.... im confused.


Any tips from anyone?

A good bet would be to start with an IBL (image based lighting) node created from the render settings window.

There are lots of posts related to this theme, just search for HDRI. :)
