Compiling sIBL_GUI for 6.02 and 6.05?

I asked Kel Solar for lower versions compatibility and if it's ok to compile the sIBL_GUI. Is somebody out there who is able to do this??? Sorry for disturbing this thread with this...
This is what he said:

The code source of sIBL_GUI is available as the software is open source but it's not with him that the XSI 6.0 and 6.5 must be dealt, because he is blind and software independant, it's the template used for XSI 7.0 that need to be modified and adapted for XSI 6.5 / 6.02.

There is a browsable archive here with all the XSI Templates versions:

http://kelsolaar.hdrlabs.com/?dir=....es/Mental%20Ray

If you have some friends that can update one of the versions for XSI 6.5/6.02 don't hesitate to ask him (It would be a real time gain for me) and I will include it in the archive, etc
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Cheers,

Thumbs up

Oh I made a mistake: It's the current XSI template that needs to be tweaked to work under XSI 6.02/6.5!

can someone give a brief explanation of exactly what this is?

The author has just said, "hello world, here it is", and I have a general idea, but what does it do exactly? Curious.

http://smartibl.com/ is where you can get the most informations about what it does

basically It's a one click Image Based Lighting solution. You select a sIBL Set that you have downloaded at HDRLabs or some other places that support / will support the format. You click on one button and it will setup the Lighting in the scene using the sIBL Set.

Otherwise 2.0.1 is out with a nasty Windows bug corrected that was preventing the download of Templates / Help Files.

Enjoy !

It is an integrated solution to HDR's. In short the Sibl file is prepared for a specific HDR and will build automatically the sun light(or other) in correct position for the scene. You don't have to find where is the sun in HDR and put a light there. And better reflections in the scene are made from a low resolution image not by the High quality HDR that usually increases several fold the render times.

Just wanna add how great this tool is. One click solution to get hdr lighting is a brilliant idea.

I love now just placing random meshes and doing random lighting checks with this tool.

Even a sphere looks awesome now.

Providing this free as well is fantastic!

Cheers

Hi o/

Thx for the feedback Vauric

Some people were having issues with the Addon and the GPS Map not being properlly copied, I repackaged everything and the GPS Map is now a JPG. Standalone users didn't had this problem.

Hello,

sIBL_GUI 2.0.7 Is Out !

It's mainly a Maintenance Release, some Qt behavior where the Manual / Help Files weren't properly loaded from a Windows Server Path has been worked around.
There is also a better verbose when the Remote Connection failed ( Error Type is outputted ).

Voilą
