The Import 3D BSDF Macro provided with LucidShape CAA V5 Based creates BRDF and BSDF data from intensity distribution data. The macro creates rotationally symmetric 3D BSDF (reflective and refractive) data calculated from far field light data within a single light plane (no source azimuth rotation). This tool requires you to provide the necessary .IES (or .LID) data, and it performs all calculations necessary to convert the data to a LucidShape BSDF dataset. The dataset can be used in either a 3D BSDF Refractive or a 3D BSDF Reflective material.
This macro requires an additional background file to run properly. For the additional file and documentation on how to install and run the macro, please visit the Customer Support Portal.
