    Thats interesting... everytime I post a question on these forums I learn something new. Or I learn that what I thought I knew was innacurate. Is there a way to convert between these formats? And...

    YES! Thank you so much for that... at first it wasnt working for me because I was applying the texture with planar projection (like a jackass). Then I read your message again and realised you had...
  14. Rectilinear HDRI environments in Lightwave?

    So Ive always used Lightwave Image World in the backdrop tab to wrap a scene with a mirrored ball (light probe) HDRI image, sometimes its even just a standard sRGB image. This works great for...
