HMTools – Blender add-on released

Proudly presenting newly developed Blender add-on – HMTools. It will help any CG artist working in the Blender to set up hdri and get some nice ones for free from hdrmaps.com using API

Installation

You can get add-on from BlenderMarket for 1$ or download for completely free from https://hdrmaps.com/hmtools. Download it to your desktop and simply install like any other Blender add-on.

First run and how to use

If you want to install some nice free hdris you can automate that process. Press Sync Library and wait around 3 minutes – an add-on will download hdris from hdrmaps.com API and will create some nice library environment asset, that can be used any time with simple drag & drop.

If you already have some hdris you can try to use HMTools‘ tweak panel that allows to rotate hdri, change its exposure power, add blur, tweak contrast or even add Flatten Ground transformation (you need to check that one especially).
