Join Dariush Derakhshani for an in-depth discussion in this video Color mapping, part of Learning V-Ray for Maya: A Professional Reference Guide.
In this video we'll be talking about color mapping, which is found in the VRay tab in…the Maya render settings. Typically, for a linear workflow, you…want to have your color mapping type set to linear multiply with a gamma set to a…2.2, effect background and don't effect colours adaptation only both turned on.…For real linear work though, you want to make sure that in your hypershade your…texture maps have gamma filter corrections on them.…
For example, we have the attribute turned on, texture input gamma.…At the bottom of the attribute editor, that texture has a 2.2 gamma, meaning that…this file coming in is at SRGB space, and needs to be converted with a gamma to be…workable in linear space. So the input for all the file textures…that you have in your scene should correspond with texture input gamma note.…
When you have that and you're at a 2.2 gamma with dome effect colors, you'll be…working in linear mode. So when you render you'll render linear,…which if you change and view in SRGB will give you the proper brightness and color…
