sIBL-Gui is a free application for organizing your HDR images and setting up your scenes with a single click.

What is unclipped HDRI?
Unclipped hdri skies capture the real full dynamic range in a scene. Often when you somewhere find hdri maps that contain the sun you might wonder why the shadows just don't look sharp and your objects might have a blueish tint.
This happens when the brightness values of the sun are clipped, which means they might be cut off at maybe the half or even less. This also results in the sun becoming grey instead of having its redish color.

Recently we started to shoot all our outdoor scenes unclipped to get the full range of the scene and give you the best lighting results.


The preview image is rendered only with the help of an unclipped hdri sky and it shows perfectly sharp shadows as you would expect. No changing gamma settings on the hdr is required to fake it.
