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.
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 intuitive interface, clicking and dragging on the 3D model.
Area Lights are currently compatible with 3ds Max, Maya, Cinema 4D, MODO, Houdini and Octane Render Standalone Connections.
HDR Light Studio is best known for studio lighting, as the software name suggests.
However you can do much more in HDR Light Studio than create studio HDRI maps. You can load and 'enhance, augment, mix' existing HDR and LDR image content using HDR Light Studio’s powerful features. Allowing you to take full control over the lighting effect of any existing HDRI map.
HDR Light Studio can be used standalone - load a 3D scene and produce the perfect HDRI map.
Connect HDR Light Studio with your 3D software and Renderer. Lighting is built and updated live within your 3D software as you light with HDR Light Studio.

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.
