      Hello,

      I’m trying to organize my HDRI Image files in order to get the fastest workflow using PM.

      Here are my issues:

      1. I don’t really understand why the HDRI Tab has gone in the latest versions of PM (I’m currently on ver. 3.22.10) so it’s not clear if adding the HDRI folder to the Texture tab is the correct way to proceed, is it?

      2. If adding to the Texture tab is the correct way to go I have some issues with the previewing of the HDRI files.
      Most of the HDRI that we use are from different producers so they have different exposure values and most of the times they are burned, so we need to use jpg files as a preview.
      Those Jpgs have to be in the same folder as the HDRI files due to our organization, the problem is that having hundreds of HDRI files with a jpg named the same way is a bit confusing.
      Is there a way to filter only HDR files in PM so the jpg preview doesn’t show on the explorer? (I read in the FAQ section that is possible only in the models tab) And if there is a way to do it is it possible to restrict the filter to the HDRI folder only?

      3. Third and last issue, I can’t figure out if there is a method to batch render the HDRI files in a Dummy scene to have rendered thumbnails in the gallery of every HDRI Files.

      Best Regards.

      Yes – since version 3 you can use HDR from the Textures tab

      … Is there a way to filter only HDR files in PM so the jpg preview doesn’t show on the explorer? (I read in the FAQ section that is possible only in the models tab)…

      You can filter images on the Textures tab also. I updated the FAQ section

      … if there is a method to batch render the HDRI files in a Dummy scene to have rendered thumbnails in the gallery of every HDRI Files.

      A lot of customers ask recently for this feature, so I`ll add this capability in the future.

      Thanks for your questions!
