sIBL_GUI For Softimage


Impressive, thank you!



sIBL_GUI 4.0.7 is out!

I’m pleased and at same time ashamed to say that sIBL_GUI 4.0.8 is out!

Pleased because I finally got time to get back on the project, ashamed because it took me so long and I have left a lot of people with very annoying bugs. I’m sincerely sorry about that!

This release is mainly a maintenance release ironing out most of issues reported through Crittercism.
