A clean slate has been provided so you can add your own details per render.

This is an image I captured of a Macbeth chart. If you are matching a real Macbeth chart, I would recommend shooting your own chart and mapping it on to the model or grabbing the ACEScg_ColorChecker2014.exr chart that has been very kindly provided by colour-science here: ColorChecker2014


CAVE are more than happy for you to use this product for both personal or commercial projects, and you may remix, adapt, and build upon the material in any medium or format. If you do use the product in any shape or form, it would be great to check out the renders or whatever else you do with the product, and be credited 😉
