You can use Survival Shader pack with a minimum knowledge about rendering in Autodesk Maya. Just assign your materials to your 3d object, tweak your lights and press render.
SSP is created to make your rendering process less painful and more fun. With an easy quick access to the whole material library, you can quickly see your 3d model in action.
If you are a big industrial design studio, a small vfx boutique or freelance 3d artist, Survival Shader Pack is everything you need to get you started to create stunning 3d renders.
Survival Shader Pack is an Arnold shader library for Autodesk Maya.
You don’t have to unless you want to. Surival Shader Pack minimizes your image creation process time by using the pre-made shaders library.

You don’t have to use bonus tools in order to be able to use Survival Shader Pack, however, it would be great to use it in order to see the library as shown in this video. Otherwise, it is ok to import shaders as you do normally with any Maya files.
Yes, I’m working on it and when it’s done, it will be shipped along with the shader pack.
