The word legend is invariably used far too frequently these days, but we are not mistaken when we share these stunning images of the legendary musician, Jimi Hendrix, created by the supremely talented Declan McGurry – with the help of HDR Light Studio. Continue reading →
Create-Visions work with exceptional 3D artists and science professionals with decades of experience to produce illustrations and animations of the tiny world inside us. They are passionate about scientific visualisation and medical animation, using Cinema 4D and Octane Render inconjunction with HDR Light Studio for lighting.
“I use HDR Light Studio daily for my work. The big advantage is that it saves times when it comes to lighting the scenes. The awesome part is that I adapt extremely simply existing HDRI maps and enhance them with other light sources. I feel far more creatively free”. Andreas Fülscher – Create-Visions
The Dose team needed to create 5 different, unique illustrations for this project in a very short amount of time. While 2d digital painting was used for most of the pieces, artist Chris Boyd thought it was a great opportunity to use CINEMA 4D, Octane Render and, of course, HDR Light Studio.
The narrative for this holiday image was, “design the coolest gingerbread house.” In which Chris had to interpret the young students drawing into a fully realized 3d illustration.
Such a mouth watering set of images have been shared with us – delicious, we are drooling. Even better, they include a tribute to the software used in making them – Octane Render and HDR Light Studio logos are included. OK, we can’t wait any longer… we’re off to the cafe whilst you enjoy the rest of these images. Continue reading →
An updated HDR Light Studio plug-in connection for CINEMA 4D R19 is now available for customers to download or for trials.
CINEMA 4D R19 is a fantastic new update from Maxon. The new viewport reflections for IBL and Area Lights work fantastic with HDR Light Studio, giving even more live feedback during the lighting process. Plus the new ProRender renderer is also working great with HDR Light Studio.
This new 2017.1123 build of the Cinema 4D Connection also fixes several bugs:
Fixed: C4DtoA hook stopped working after Arnold 2.1.2 update
Fixed: C4DtoA Area light textures are not loading correctly
Fixed: Bug where selecting an object, then copy and paste it (either CTRL+C then CTRL +V, or CTRL+Drag) the HDR Light Studio Environment was being selected.
I had the pleasure to spend the 1st week of October visiting existing and potential customers in Sweden. Climaxing in a demonstration of HDR Light Studio at the Cinema 4D User Event organised by our Swedish authorised reseller Creative Tools.
It was an extremely busy week, with many miles being driven on the road between locations, and many miles being driven by my computer mouse, as I provided in depth demonstrations of HDR Light Studio features with 3ds Max, Maya, Cinema 4D and MODO. Continue reading →
Duncan Dix is D&AD awarded Creative Director with 10 years’ experience across Broadcast, Film, Live Event & Print. Duncan lit Audi A3 images with HDR Light Studio and shared his story of lighting with us.
Here is what he says- I’m finding Light Studio indispensable. It’s one of those things – once you use it it’s hard to go back to a workflow without it.
