Welcome to the sIBL family, Blender!

New Blender extension builds a bridge to sIBL_GUI for quick lighting and environment setups.

Thanks to the development efforts of Jed Frechette, Blender users can now enjoy the one-click environment lighting setup that the Smart IBL system is famous for. Integration is done thoroughly, by using sIBL_GUI as browser and central library management hub. If you already use sIBL_GUI in conjunction with 3dsMAX or Maya, the workflow with Blender will be familiar:
  • Pick an environment preset
  • Pick Blender as setup template
  • Click the Send to Software button
Photorealistic lighting (and background integration) couldn't be easier.
