— IBL and HDRI —

A 3D scene can be lit by Image based Light (IBL). To do so, a panorama with an extended dynamic range, an HDRI, is required (HDRI High Dynamic Range Image). HDRI panoramas are a bit more elaborate than conventional panoranas.

There are several, but not many, image processing programs that can handle images with a high dynamic range (HDRI) and can transform such panoramas into other projections.
