Student Licenses

Lightmap is committed to helping students by offering its products at a substantial discount.

How much does it cost?


What do I get?

You get to light models with HDR Light Studio on your laptop for one whole year. You will also get any updates to the software during that year.

What if I need to use it after that?

If you are still a student when your license expires, you can purchase the software again at the discounted price.

Are there any restrictions?

You can only use the software while in education for the purpose of learning. You cannot use the software commercially to make money.

Any other restrictions?

The software is sold without support. We will help you get it up and running but cannot help with questions beyond that. If you're stuck, the user guide should help, or you could ask your course tutor.

Anything else I should know?

The software cannot be upgraded to a commercial version.

Do I qualify for the discount?

In order to qualify for the discount you must be attending a 2+ year course at a college of further education or university awarding degree level qualifications in a course relevant to computer graphics, design or visualization. You can be a part-time or full-time student. Internet based study courses are not accepted.

How do I apply?

You will need to provide evidence of your status as a student. This could be a photograph or scan of a letter or student pass that shows BOTH:

  • Your name
  • The name of your college or university
You will also need to supply the following information about your course.

Name of course
Month/Year you first enrolled
Duration of course
