converting IES profiles to image

I'm looking for a software that can convert IES light profiles to an image (ie. EXR).
Goal is to use in renderer that does not support those.

thanks !

I doubt you're going to find one.

You could use the IESviewers "Render" view and save it as a screenshot that you can photoshop to extract the light pattern from.

You could also apply the profile to a light in your 3D package and render the result on a grey lambert surface to capture the light pattern.
