To add support in Rhino for a connection to HDR Light Studio, we have implemented a new HDR Light Studio Environment texture type that is added to Rhino.
This is currently compatible with Rhino V5 using: V-Ray for Rhino 3, Rhino Render, Brazil, Neon and Octane for Rhino.
Please note: V-Ray for Rhino 2 has its own independent direct connection to HDR Light Studio, and is not dependent on installing the Lightmap provided ‘Rhino Connection’. But will still require purchasing a license for the Rhino connection.
1.Uninstall any old plug-ins. See Uninstalling.
2.Download the HDR Light Studio Connection for Rhino from our web site.
3.Unzip the file. Here's the structure:
4.Put the HDRLightStudioTexture.rhp file in a folder on your computer where you wish it to be permanently located. Once the plug-in has been installed in the following step, it will reference the file in its current location.
5. Drag and drop the .rhp file onto a running session of Rhino 5. The HDR Light Studio Environment type will be installed.
6. That's it! You should now be able to create a HDR Light Studio Environment type in Rhino.
To uninstall the HDR Light Studio connection from Rhino, go to Tools > Options in the Rhino menu.
Go to the Plug-ins section and find the HDRLightStudio Texture entry in the list, and uncheck the tick box.
You will be told the plug-in is already loaded and to restart Rhino for this change to take effect.
Press OK on the Rhino Options panel.
Delete the HDRLightStudio Texture.rhp file from it's location. This plug-in has now been uninstalled from Rhino.
