Join Aaron F. Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Image-based lighting with a skylight, part of 3ds Max: Advanced Lighting.
- [Instructor] The gradient background…in the MR physical sky environment looks pretty good,…but eventually we're going to want…to replace that with out own background,…and we can also use that background…to illuminate the scene using image based lighting.…If we want to keep the MR sun and sky system intact,…but just replace the background here, we can do that.…Let's go into the material editor,…and double click on the MR physical sky node…to load into the parameters,…and you can see we have use custom background map.…
If we enable that, and drop in a spherical environment,…then that will override the MR physical sky background,…but it will not change the lighting.…All that we'll do is replace that background.…So in fact what I really want to do here…is replace the background…and also drive the lighting with that background.…So let's do some image based lighting instead.…Close the material editor,…go into Rendering, Environment,…and we've got MR physical sky as our environment map.…
Let's clear that out.…Right click and choose Clear,…
