Maya Character Look Dev and Lighting Turntable Project 1001
This is a digital studio environment suitable for look devving small to mid sized assets, primarily characters. It comes with a series of modelled lights all mapped with photographic HDRIs and is set up for 3-point lighting. This is very useful when assessing models, textures, look development and rigging ROM tests.
Simply pop your asset into the scene, add your shaders and hit render. Alternatively, you can tweak the lights to create your own turntable setup. The scene has been set up using the CAVE custom ACES config but should work with all the latest ACES config files.
File Format: Maya 2018, 2020.4+, MtoA 4.2.0, Arnold Core 220.127.116.11, Nuke 12.2v4
The Maya 2020.4 project comes with all textures and shaders for the setup. The shaders were created using Arnold MtoA 4.2.0 and Arnold Core 18.104.22.168. A Nuke 12.2v4 script has also been provided that allows you to create a contact sheet. An Alembic file of the environment and the lights has also been provided so you can modify the setup for earlier versions of Maya or other applications.
If you are using an older version of Maya or Arnold, check out the following video to see how to 1. Set up the colour space. 2. Map the textures and 3. Rebuild the shaders.
