Join Aaron F. Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video White-balancing a map, part of 3ds Max: Advanced Lighting (2017).
- [Instructor] Earlier in the course…we set our exposure control to a…white balance value of 5,500 kelvin.…Let's just check in on that under Rendering,…Exposure Control, we've got a temperature of 5,500 K,…and the image coming in here is at a…default 6,500 K, and so it's a little bit too blue.…And we can adjust for that using…a mental ray node, and we can also…take that opportunity to illustrate…that we have the ability to set up…a different background and skylight.…
So let's go into the Material Editor,…open that Material Editor, and here is our environment map.…Double click that and just rename it.…I'll call it environment, or just env.…And we want to multiply this, so go into the…maps in the Material Map browser,…and you're looking for RBG Multiply.…Here it is, drag that over and connect…that bitmap to one of the inputs…of the RGP Multiply, and we want…to multiply that by a mental ray node.…
Keep scrolling down in the map section…and open up Mental Ray, and it's going to be…under K for kelvin, here it is, Kelvin Temperature.…
