HDRI Link

What is HDRI Link?

HDRI Link is a workflow plugin that allows third-party renderers to connect with Greyscalegorilla’s extensive HDRI Expansion Pack library via their intuitive Browser technology. Choosing the right HDRI for your scene is often done by trial and error. HDRI Link makes this process as easy as a click.

Speed up your Lighting workflow in Arnold, Octane and other third party renderers with HDRI Link from Greyscalegorilla. We combined 5 years of experience making HDRI workflows as simple as possible with Cinema 4D and have finally brought it to Octane, Arnold, And other Third Party Renders.

HDRI Link gets you started with 20 Sample HDRIs, but is expandable to over 300 unique HDRIs with our HDRI Expansion Packs!

Once you use HDRI Link, you won’t believe how fast it is to try out new Lighting and Reflections for your Cinema 4D Scene.

Reflectance got to be too complicated. Topcoat simplifies my life just like HDRI Studio did to help get the look I wanted.

I love HDRI Rig and Topcoat. The tools you provide are real time savers!

Topcoat is great for adding realistic wear and grunge layers that give objects that extra punch to look real.

I have TopCoat docked in my layout, I use it so much. I’m always throwing on and layering a few things. It’s optimized well, too.
