Lightbox is a new type of node meant to be connected to the IBL which creates a fully parametric virtual room.
This node can be used to quickly create a room-like or lightbox-like (a.k.a., softbox) environment. This can be extremely useful not only to ground your object in plausible neutral surroundings, but also to cancel distracting unwanted reflections from your objects.
