Insane at first look, but does not seem to work with x64 - the GUI just can't find any sIBL files, LW users seem to have the same issues according to your forums :(

That is really cool. I've been bugging the forum hdrlabs.com to get the development running again .

Cheers for the hard work, I'll definitely will test it in the coming week.

Dunno if you downloaded the 0.9.2.1 release though, the previous one had a collection filtering bug that should be fixed ^^

mmmhh, strange I'll check that at work on a 64bit windows, I don't have one so I can't be sure it's ok. By the way I don't really see what's the thing with LW since the software is aimed for XSI ? It's a beta though I should put it in the title, but it's 0.9 so I don't expect it to work perfectly before some weeks. Don't hesitate to provide me feedback!

Edit : Arbalest : I tried really fast on windows xp 64 bit and had no problems to get my collection shown. Can you try with the last version (I'm updating nearlly everydays) and if the software doesn't work, go into the preferences, activate the debug verbose level, restart sIBL_GUI, open the log window (in the preferences) and try to see if you spot some errors. Don't hesitate to send me the log if you don't see anything suspicious.

I had some users reporting the program wasn't launching correctly on Windows Vista, I slighlty modified the way I'm launching sIBL_GUI from XSI. Hope it's working better, I'll only put hands on a vista copie tomorrow

Btw this weekend I'll upgrade the XSI template to a more object oriented/faster code and I'll try to integrate the new linear workflow of XSI 7.

Ok i found the Problem - I can only use the default templates folder.
When I copy my templates to that folder everything works fine - if I specify a custom destination I get the following error for every single file:

Exception In sIBL_IO.getNodes() Method | Provided File seem to not be a correct .ibl / Template / Settings file !

However if I copy those files to the default folder they work.

Mmmmh really strange, I'll double check that tonight, but you should even be able to start the interface without any templates folder or preferences files. Thanks for your feedback !

0.9.9 just cooked out

Here is the change log :

- Added Update Scene option to the Template (Update Scene and Override User Tweaks Buttons). This basically enable you to update some part of the sIBL Setup and for example, use the background of one sIBL_Set, the reflection or the Sun of another one. There are a lot of combinations possible. The code is not entirely finished and don't fully apply on Sun for example.
- Refactored some procedures.
- BugFix and improvements on sIBL_GUI.

sIBL_GUI is approaching the final 1.0 release and is now running on Mac Os X and Linux.
I would like to add that Christian uploaded a lot new sIBL Sets and put them on a really nice eye candy page :
