This Plug-in uses Light Probe images, HDRi Probe Images or Environment Maps, commonly used in as the environment source of light for 3D objects, to create highly reflective objects in GIMP. Along with the source code, binary executables are included for Windows_x32, Windows_x64 and Linux_x64.
To achieve the best results from this plug-in, the Bevel Reflect Logo Script is highly recommended. The BRL script is extremely versatile and corrects several issues with the stand alone plug-in.
In Version 2.0, I’ve updated ML Bevel Reflect to include new parameters, allowing control over bevel depth (reflection distance) for each of the 3 bevel options, as shown below.
