This section contains links to Textures found in V-Ray for Maya.

 

Overview


V-Ray for Maya adds a number of textures specifically for use with V-Ray. See the links below for more information on specific Textures.

V-Ray textures appear in all the areas of the user interface where standard Maya textures appear. They can be used with both V-Ray materials and standard Maya materials. The textures are organized within sub-groups to make them easier to find.

External V-Ray Tools for Texture tasks


V-Ray comes with additional utilities to assist with texture creation, including a converter for creating tiled EXRs. The Image to Tiled Multiresolution EXR Converter can convert a number of image formats to .exr files in OpenEXR format. This tool is common to all versions of V-Ray.
