Piotr Kosinski
PK3D Studio

HDR Light Studio has been a game changer from the start putting the artist back on the driving seat, the results speak volumes but it is the flexibility to design the lighting by painting and interactively work that made our work better... This is the kind of modern tools that change how you work for the better, where the director and creative team work in sync and where the final result is what counts. Just brilliant.
