MODO users love how HDR Light Studio has made their work easy, simple and creative.
HDR Light Studio is first and foremost a lighting tool, the HDRI map is simply the carriers of your lighting intent. HDR Light Studio let’s 3D artists express their lighting vision with unparalleled ease and speed within MODO. Our users light their shots faster and achieve sophisticated lighting and reflections without worrying about managing an array of complex settings.
The new HDR Light Studio for MODO integration is helping both beginners and the most advanced users to create better lit imagery. Let’s hear what some of our MODO users are saying about HDR Light Studio… Continue reading
Framestore have been using HDR Light Studio to light variuos shots recently. We caught up with Andy Rowan-Robinson, CG Supervisor, who explains their use on a recent TV spot for Qualcomm.
“In the Snapdragon spot HDR Light Studio was used from blocking out the lighting right through to adding the final tweaks. It allows an extremely quick method to correct our orientations and quickly balance the base HDR images that we send to our renderer. We can play with the general levels of these base images before we go in and lighten and darken specific areas on the fly to create the shape and look that we are after. Continue reading
Image based lighting (IBL) using a HDRI map created with HDR Light Studio is particularly suited to perfectly lighting a single object or small collection of objects.
Here we show a variety of scene set-up approaches in your main 3D software/renderer and talk about their advantages and disadvantages. The example we use here is the Stanford Dragon with a small chrome ball. Continue reading
Understanding different lighting types to choose from when using your 3D software. And learn why image based lighting works so well as a technique for lighting objects.
HDR Light Studio™ is a dedicated tool for creating lighting. It connects to your 3D software providing a fast and easy way to light your 3D images. Real-time and interactive – simply ‘drag and drop’ lights onto your 3D model.
Lighting designs can easily and quickly be adjusted within this resolution independent tool. HDRI maps can be output as fast low-res previews through to high quality production output- in either .HDR or .EXR file formats.
