1.) Grab the latest studio pro download for Linux. (12.5.x) as of writing, but  I’m using 13.1.7 alpha.

2) Extract the contents, I’ve just gone “/home/dude/Downloads” and make a new folder in your home directory, “/home/dude/programs” for example.

3) Open a terminal and cd to “/home/dude/Downloads/3delight-13.1.7-Linux-x86_64” and run the following: “./install –prefix home/dude/programs”

4)cd to /home/dude/programs/3delight-13.1.7

5)run: “unset DELIGHT”

6)run: “source .3delight_bash”

7)cd to home

8)sudo gedit .bashrc (and add the following lines)

# set DELIGHT path

export DELIGHT=/home/dude/programs/3delight-13.1.7/Linux-x86_64
source /home/dude/programs/3delight-13.1.7/.3delight_bash

9)I had issues with these env variables not being present, so set these too, with the following command.  “export MAYA_PLUG_IN_PATH=/home/dude/programs/3delight-13.1.7/maya/2017/plug-ins”, and MAYA_SCRIPTS_PATH, DL_DISPLAYS_PATH too.

10) Set the frame buffer to be i-display in 3delight prefs in Maya, before you render, or it will crash Maya.

I launch Maya from a terminal, that way everything is set right. Also, if you plan on adding your own custom OSL shaders, set this env too.

Really neat tool, and super cheap too.

Using H16.0.600 and vfh-4b70a9c from 2017-07-15

Early days, but support is looking good. Shader has moved to MAT context  thankfully.
