Installing the software

None of the programs need to be installed as such. Just place the HDRShop exe somewhere, create a 'plugins' folder there and place the lightgen exe inside it. Put the import script in realsoft3d/scripting.

Exporting the lights

You'll need to rely on lightgen documentation here, as it doesn't work in wine. Just export as a text file.

Importing the lights

Fire up RS and click on Scripts->lightgen2.js. This opens the import dialog. Select the file you exported and click on "Create Lights". For more advanced options, see the tooltips.
