View Full Version : hdri question <<< Urgent >>>

is it possible to exclude one object from being effected by the hdri ??

because its giving me reflections from the hdri that i do not need...:banghead:

So do you want your object to still reflect other objects on the scene but not the hdri map? One way is to use a mia material and control the max distance of the reflection then use a sphere as your environment instead of the mentalrayIbl... Another way would be is to do it through different render passes.

ps.: i am using maya 2009

try attaching a different environment shader to the shading group of the material you want to remove the reflections from. use an empty mip_lookup_spherical or something similar and see if that works.
