• Spheres Layout:
‎‎‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‎‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‎- Compact: Chrome / Matte Ball side by side
‎‎‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‎‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‎- Vertical: Chrome / Matte Ball above the other

• Shading:
‎‎‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‎‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‎- Materials assignment for the asset (balls, chart, stand, and backplate)

Use Cases

Hi! I am trying to use your HDA but had a question. The realisting option in the parameters makes everything dissapears, maybe because the file is missing, so are the textures and this file somewhere?

Or its something I have to click on and I missed it?

Thank you!

Hi Ruthie! Thanks for your feedback!

Here is the updated version, feel free to give it a try!
