I am reporting on something I noticed while passing contents from Sketchfab to Omniverse.
Since there is no Unlit representation in USD, I think that EmissiveColor is often used when converting from glTF, etc.
Is it possible to change the default Intensity of the EmissiveColor of the UsdPreviewSurface in RTX rendering/Iray rendering?
The EmissiveColor of the USD (UsdPreviewSurface) in Omniverse seemed to be dark unless multiplied by 3000-4000.
So I verified the material UsdPreviewSurface/OmniPBR/OmniSurface’s EmissiveColor.
RTX Real-Time and Pixar Storm compared.
I have already figured out that Pixar Storm only looks at UsdPreviewSurface for materials.
In the case of UsdPreviewSurface, it seems that multiplying the EmissiveColor scale by 3000-4000 will give the intended color.
This can be adjusted with inputs:scale in UsdUVTexture, but I have not seen many USD files where this is utilized.
For OmniPBR, this does not seem to be a problem as it can be adjusted with Emissive Intensity.
(Specify 3000-4000 for Emissive Intensity)
For OmniSurface, EmissiveColor is just fine.
It seems to be a requirement that “Emission Mode” be “emission_lx”.
The meaning of “Emission Mode” is taken from the following document.
Omniverse Create 2021.3.8/2022.1.0 (Windows 10)

After unzipping, test_EmissiveColor.usda and tile_image.png will be extracted.
