Beta Update - Bake EEVEE lights to HDRI [$]

Did you know that if you bake your scene into HDRI, you don't bake the lights but only the reflections of the light? We found a trick, and now we can bake lights (the light presets in EEVEE Production Suite) into HDRI. So we can make awesome HDRIs that don't exist, or we can make our own HDRI's tailored to our needs.

Since this is a beta update of the Blender Studio Lighting Solution, we can work fast in EEVEE and render out in Cycles. If you want to jump straight to Blender Market, here is the link.

Otherwise, here is a video about the latest update that shows how you can bake lights into HDRI:

I found out that these HDRIs are excellent to lit your characters (The cover shows a Human Generator Character).
