Notes:

  • The set features Iray materials for Platea. As a result, Platea is required for use. Please also ensure you are using the latest version(s).
  • The same file structure is kept from the original version, so existing scenes can be updated to the Iray shaders by simply replacing the materials using the material settings provided. You will find new Iray specific scenes and materials in each products 'Iray' specific folder.
  • Scene files as used in the promos have been included, which are located in each products folder in Scenes\Iray\Promos. The other files are all located in their original product folders.
  • For Iray promo scenes, please ensure you disable the setting 'Ignore when opening a scene file' under Render Settings if you wish to load the settings contained in those scenes (ie whatever settings I personally use for that particular scene)
  • Emissive surfaces such as lights, are denoted by the suffix A (previously E). Lights without this suffix are essentially 'off'.
