This tool is great for anyone who doesn't know how or just doesn't like lighting their projects. The tool creates a light that orbits around the chosen subject giving a different lighting angle on each frame. Users can then batch render the scene and STEP through the rendered frames to find which one they like most. After doing so they can then go to that frame in the Maya scene and click the "Delete Rig" button to lock the light in place. And then the process can be repeated until the desired lighting is achieved.
Main Features: - Curves Visualization - Distance setting - Orbits and Intervals settings (To control the amount of light angles) - "Frames Needed" calculation - Render Layers created automatically
Features to come: - Tools Tab with "Legacy Shader Converter" and "Gamma Corrector" and more... - Different Orbit patterns (Like Hemi-Sphere, Grid, maybe others) - Hopefully faster updating of the Visualizer - Auto test batch render settings
