.SH files
« on: October 12, 2012, 04:21:59 PM »
I've been meaning to ask because I can't find an answer in the docs (though it probably is there and I'm just not seeing it) - but what are these HDR_xxx.SH files that my Lightroom won't import.

And can I do anything with them?

If you run linux or OSX you can use them to produce HDR files.

Thank you. I run various OSes one of which is OSX.

So how do I access them or rather, what do I need to edit / view them?

Thank you.

But for my simple mind I'm still confused - that link tells me how to automate the opening of such a file and not what I can edit / view them with?

A simple text editor will open them

I guess I'm just being ultra stupid right now or not making myself understood.

But what good is a text editor with a file that's designed for creating an HDR image - or am I missing a part of the story here? Let me re-ask my original question and see if that clarifies what I'm trying to understand....

How do I use the .SH files in creating an HDR image? If there's a piece of document I should read I'm happy to do so just I don't know where to look.
