Skybox image generated from Maya?


Recommended Posts

Anyone know of a tutorial or info on how to generate a skybox image from a Maya (or 3ds Max or XSI) model? I've got a whopping big cityscale model that I need to use for generating a set of skybox images from different locations around the city. It's not in Source so I can't use the separate 3d skybox trick alas.

thanks for quoting, but if you are looking for cube maps:

i also wrote a small MEL script for rendering the cube maps (you have to keep the render view open before execution :()
