IBLs

forger allows users to use "Image Based Lighting" to light their scenes, doing so will give a more realistic look to scenes.

This should be used preferably whilst painting since gamma correct materials have harsher

Please note that this panel does not allow drag & drop since iOS clamps images to 8bit when they are dragged, users are encouraged to copy any lat-long images they may have to the apps "Documents/ibls/" subdirectory of the app via Apple's "Files" app.

forger supports panorama (lat-long) HDR images in common industry formats such as .exr and .hdr.

Selecting an image in this panel will create an "EnvironmentLight" node with the selected image if there isn't one in the scene or change the IBL image of the first "EnvironmentLight" node it finds.

Note

IBLs can't be accumulated or translated in the scene, only the first one found is used in scenes.
