This video shows how to use image-based lighting as the primary light source in Viewport 2.0 for Maya 2017 Service Pack 3. George shows how to create a skydome and then add an image that can be used to light the scene.
Instead of updates, Autodesk Maya subscribers have exclusive access to extensions, which provide access to new tools and workflows on top of the already robust Maya toolset. In this course, George Maestri reviews Maya 2017 Extension 3, including the new UV Editor interface and Viewport 2.0 additions. Plus, explore some new modeling tools (including the new Match Transforms tool), additional rendering features, and a few special effects tools. Check out the extension in action, and get tips to incorporate the new toolset into your Maya workflow.
