HDR Light Studio software provides 3D artists with a new way to light 3D imagery. Paint your shot with lights. The lighting process is now easy, fast, precise, creative and enjoyable. HDR Light Studio builds lighting that is used by your existing 3D software and renderer. By adding HDR Light Studio, 3D artists become more productive and image quality improves.
This new major release of HDR Light Studio is called Carbon – the element used in the filament of the first commercially available light bulbs.
Version numbers have now been replaced with nick names.
Tighter integrations bring leading 3D Renderers directly inside the HDR Light Studio interface.
The dynamic HDRI environment map is updated in real-time as lights are added and adjusted, as is the Render View that is lit by it.
HDR Light Studio can also create and control 3D Area Lights / Emitters inside your 3D software.
These are positioned with the same intuative interface, clicking and dragging on the 3D model.
Area Lights are currently compatible with 3ds Max, Maya, Cinema 4D and MODO Connections.
HDR Light Studio can be used standalone - load a 3D scene and produce the perfect HDRI map.

HDR Light Studio 5 is a great improvement over the previous version. With an improved UI, better and smarter controls and improved connectivity, it really helps speed up the complex lighting setups. We liked version 4, we got a major crush on 5!
I’ve been using HDR Light Studio extensively for the last 2-3 years. With HDR Light Studio 5 the interface has become even more intuitive and most settings are now accessible with a single click making lighting setups even faster.
