Mastering CGI shader ball 2016 converted to Maya

I’ve converted the Mastering CGI shader ball (2016) to Maya. It’s a complete Maya scene with lights and shaders (manually converted so not pixel perfect but close enough) so it’s ready to use. If anyone is interested you can contact me (use the Contact Form here on the website or write a comment below). The max version of the shader ball is shared for free on cgtricks (https://cgtricks.com/shader-ball-2016-mastering-cgi/) with the following restrictions: ”You can use the shaderball for personal and commercial use, but you don’t change the base textures or resell the ball. Now, enjoy and share it around.” I assume the same rules would apply here.

    Hello,

    I am interested in the maya version of this shader ball. I wanted to convert it myself but signing up for the trial version of 3DS just to convert was such a hassle and not worth it. Are you still sharing the shader?

    Regards,

    Nick

    • Hi Nick,

      Yep, it can be a bit of a hassle getting a trial for Max. And the conversion is a hassle to. I’ve sent you an e-mail.

    Hi Magnus,

    My name is Serban and I have started working on converting the Shaderball scene to Maya VRay, but couldn’t get the VRayDirt material right. Your scene might really help me out understand this better. Can you share it to my email?

    Thank you!
    Serban

    • Hi Serban,

      My scene is not pixel perfect compared to the Max scene, but close enough to work well I think. You can email me with the Contact page on my site and I’ll send the files to you.

    Hello, I am looking to use this shader ball for some VRay studies in Maya. Was hoping you would be willing to share an .MA or an OBJ. file? Thanks.

  18. Aakash

    Hi i need this shader ball very much
    I need it for arnold hope u help me out

    • Hi Aakash,

      Sorry this setup is for V-Ray not Arnold. It should be fairly straightforward to convert it to Arnold, but I’m not an Arnold user so I’ll leave that for someone with more expertise to do.
