Here's a little demonstration of what you can do with Reflection images (spherical) within MaCrea. With the brand new "automatic ambient" function MaCrea distributes 13 lights across the sphere based on the loaded reflection image. Additionally there's a reflection diffusion section that allows the creation of blurred reflections up until an image based diffuse illumination. It's really fun to goof around with all that and the results can be pretty amazing. Ceramics, plastics, skin, anything can be easily illuminated by the image of a chrome sphere.
