I am running a E8400 @3Ggiz, 4GB ram, 450gts, Maya 2009. please please can someone tell me a solution except for buying anew Workstation
Hey guys I seem to be using the HDRI images completely wrong. You are all using backplates, however when I try to use them the HDRI wont reflect properly (makes the car transparent - I'm using mental ray).
I use the 360 HDRI as my background which works ace, and I can move it slightly to get the best angle. I just use the environment tab (8) whilst moving the bitmap in the ME to put the car in the right position.
Here is my latest WIP, using this HDRI....(please note the panels from the bonnet back are not yet finished)
I know I am nowhere near as good as everyone else here, but here is my attempt on this HDRI, without any post production. All colour effects etc are within 3DSMAX,
I have gone for a warmer environment, as it's winter here and zero degrees C
