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.


The aim of the Audi project was to produce clean, atmospheric images focusing on the lines of the car. Synthetic soft boxes were used to light the matte finished carpaint, creating extremely clean reflections without artefacts. The ‘light paint’ tool was essential in accurately lighting the lines of the car.

The Cinema 4D connection was used with Octane to render the images. Using HDR Light Studio in conjunction with the interactive preview has sped up my lighting workflow tenfold.

I have been working in motion graphics as a designer & director for ten years. I’ve always had a passion for creating detailed hi-resolution images, and I am about to set up a company focusing on this work. HDR Light Studio is proving to be an essential part of the pipeline.
