HDRi Maker Panel

The “CATEGORY” selector allows to choose the category where the backgrounds are contained and organized. Simplifies the search for a background based on categorie

UP/DOWN ARROWS: They allow to change the Category simply by clicking on them

SEARCH LENS: By clicking on the name you can search by typing the name of the background you are looking for.

ADD: It will simply add the background chosen by the previews, this will replace what you are using (If you already have a background in use) otherwise it will add it

IMPORT: Useful if you want to import a background on the fly, you can choose any “Image” format compatible with blender. It is highly recommended to use “HDR” or “EXR” formats. The current wallpaper will be automatically replaced with the imported one (Porai will also save it)

MENU BARS: Each submenu bar will open a new menu, the menus change according to the selected section, therefore not all menus will be identical, depending on the type of Library used (Default or User)

Library: allows to choose between “Default” (the standard category of HDRi Maker) and “User” (the section dedicated to the backgrounds you crated and want to save). The “User” section, unless you have already saved backgrounds, will be empty but you can fill it as you wish

Indicates the indexed position of the selected category among all categories

LEFT/RIGHT ARROWS: It allows you to browse the preview backgrounds without having to open the image popup

STARS: The star is useful for finding the background used in the scene in the library. So If you have forgotten what the name you are using is called, simply by pressing the star, the preview will synchronize with the background in use.

REMOVE: Remove the background in use, so there will be no material applied to the background

1/2/4/8k: Before pressing the “Add” button you can choose the background resolution. To change the background resolution in use, choose the resolution and press the “Add” button. This is not available in the “User” section. User is a category dedicated to saving backgrounds, of any kind, even the “Procedural” type, because of it has no resolution, as it isn’t based on images. Although you can save any type of background.
