HDRI in Maya 6.0
Can anyone tell me what the function of the "Image Based Lighting" section of Mental Ray?
I have been experimenting with HDRI using HDR images as Ambient Lighting files applied to a Sphere, rendering with Final Gathering.
This works great, but I'm just curious as to what this new "feature" is I just found and how it's used.
