Rhino3D Lighting Plug-in - Installation

Scroll Prev Top Next More

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.

Installing on Windows

Installing on Windows

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.

You should now proceed to Licensing. For information on using the connection see Rhino connection.
