View Full Version : Changing the tint in HDRI
19-06-2007, 07:03 PM
The user manual states
"Using the HDRI feature of BlueCherry with mental ray will cause a
slight tinting of your scene. This can be controlled"
How is the tint controlled?
The only outdoor setting is blue (too blue).
How do I change the tint?

Good question David. I must be honest, I have been embroiled in some data issues recently, and I can't seem to find that section of the manual.
However I do know that BlueCherry does not currently have integrated tint control. The best way to do it is to alter the map itself. It's easy; honest!
In brief, you need to unhide and unfreeze the HDRI Skylight that Bluecherry makes. You can do this through the right-click menus. The skylight is called "HDRI_Ambient_Skylight".
Select it, open it's properties and create an instance of the map it's using in the material editor. From there, you can scroll down to the output rollout and modify the color using the "color map" group. Just click the "Enable Color Map" Checkbox, and the "RGB" radio button underneath. Now you can change the RGB colors however you like.
If you have any specific questions about the process, let me know!
P.S. That sounds like something that'd be nice to have in Bluecherry v2. I'll put it on the whiteboard!!
