How to set the Gamma value in 3DS MAX?

Post by oleg » Thu Jan 18, 2018 6:28 am

Hello!

How to set the Gamma value in 3DS MAX in HDRI?
I tried already to write the desired value for all the input fields :P
I probably do something wrong?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi oleg,

that would be the "exponent" field.

Please note that Indigo usually doesn't let you override the gamma. It will only let you do it for file formats that do not have the gamma embedded (or defined by the specs). There is a "force gamma" or "override gamma" option, but I don't think any plugin (or even Indigo's UI itself) supports it currently.

That is, if I recall correctly. Maybe Ono-Sendai can shed some more light.

I will try to add that option in the next IndigoMax release (and rename "exponent" to "gamma")

You can set gamma for HDRI backgrounds in Indigo standalone, as show in the screenshot. I practically always use it as it's such a great way to give some extra pop to a bad HDRI. So just a +1 from me to add it to the Max plugin. :)

Thanks fused, I will really wait for the addition of this option!
Thanks Oscar J, I also change this parameter in standalone :)
