Yes this is great! I was playing with the MedianCut plugin and was not able to get the lights to be any other colour than white. Just wondering if you were able to get a result using this.

The colors are in HDRI, so they look white, but if you check the rgb values you will see that they are different.

Ok got it to work:blush:. I needed to turn down the Luminance scale to .00001 to achieve proper results otherwise it was blown out. Thanks Banty great tool!

Wow, looks freaking sweet. I'm stuck at work so I can't test, but does it work for the Mac?

Thanks, for MAC there's no HDRSHOP, but if I see that there are many mac users I can recompile the code for MAC for creating a command line suite.
