    Great add-on, super useful and easy to use. The only thing I'm missing is the spread option on area lights, which I would find really handy.

      Good idea! I just added this, will be available in the next release :)

    This is a great add-on! I use it regularly and haven't experienced any issues with it to date. Definitely recommend it highly! It's significantly easier than trying to manage your lighting without a dedicated add-on.

    This has been my go-to lighting addon for quite some time now. Very useful, in particular makes setting up HDRI lighting extremely easy. Lists all lights and controls which makes managing your lights easier too.

    I bought this a long time ago and still use it a ton, great add-on!

    This is a must have add-on. I m very pleased with the way I can control the lights and by that the mood in my scenes. It is so quick and easy and really good. The HDRI part is working excellent, but I wish the file browser was a bit more "old fashion" with choose, select, ok, apply or cancel buttons. Even maybe a folder system that reads my folder structure. I have many HDRI files in many folders, and it can be just me, but I don't really feel I have fully control over finding my files (or maybe it is me that haven't seen all options yet). This is just nitpick, the plugin is amazing :) and I can use a bit time to tag my files (and not be lazy) and get better control though.

      Thanks for the review!

      I agree the HDRI selector needs some work to be more responsive and more useful, and I plan to address this in the next major release. Until then, like you've already found, the intended workflow is to use the search and tagging feature to help you organize your HDRIs.

    I'm delighted every time I use it, which is basically every project.

    Really is a great add on, being able to see label the lights in the main view is a great help, as is the HDRI viewer. Money well spent.

    I've been using this non-stop while lighting since i buyed it. An amazing and simple add-on that do just what you expect. I only wish you could change the area shape directly on the add-on, but that's just me !

      That's a great idea! I'll add it in the next release :) Glad it's been helpful for you!

    Purchasing after trying it on github; after 10 minutes it's obvious that I've been a fool for not using this before. The HDRI manager alone makes this worth buying. Great work, stellar documentation, an incredibly practical add-on. I hope to see more eevee support in the future!
