“First installation”

Step A: You will have to indicate the path of the libraries where we downloaded
the 19 .zip files

Step B: Here instead you will have to indicate a path where the libraries will be permanently installed, so think carefully about a path, which won’t be subject to modification/move. Never use the Blender add-on path or the exact same path as step “A”

Step C: This path should only be used if you previously saved backgrounds with
HDRi Maker 2.x, (Versions prior to 2.0 of HDRi Maker did not have the save meth-
od, so if it doesn’t need this, leave the path empty)

Note: If you have already installed aversion of HDRi Maker 2.x (none earlier than2.0) and you have already installed the 19 .zip files libraries, you can skip this step and go to Library Management

When selecting the paths (in the popup window), make sure to de- activate “Relative Path” as shown in the image below:

When finished, press “OK” and save your preferences:
