Image-Based Lighting !!


I would like to generate a real environment from a photography. I heard that the principle of the IBL could do that (for the lighting).

So, I would like to know if it was possible to do it with a python script into Blender ?? Because I’m not sure that the IBL is included into Blender…

Has someone any idea ???

Thank you all…

IBL is included in Kai’s Blender 2.49. Download a copy from

use blender 2.5.

trunk has an approximate version, render25 has a raytraced version.

together with the gamma correction in 2.5, you will have a fairly good match for the original footage.
