Filestar !!!!!! https://filestar.com/

I know that I recommended this in my HDR Lighting tutorials, but I just discovered a great new use for this application. I needed a high resolution cloudy sky background for some renders of models that I've made, and the available *.jpg was just too small. For a variety of technical reasons, I could not use the corresponding HDR file itself. What to do?

Well, I loaded the 4K HDR file into Filestar, where I could easily convert it to a *.png file, and then also used Filestar to crop out the section I wanted for the backplate. Simple!

Filestar is just an incredibly useful tool with a ton of applications, and it is either free or cheap, depending on how often you need it. If you do HDR lighting, this really belongs in your toolbox.
