HDR Light Studio: The fastest way to perfect lighting

HDR Light Studio software provides 3D artists with a new way to light 3D imagery. Paint your shot with lights. The lighting process is now easy, fast, precise, creative and enjoyable. HDR Light Studio builds lighting that is used by your existing 3D software and renderer. By adding HDR Light Studio, 3D artists become more productive and image quality improves.

Interactive Image Based Lighting

The dynamic HDRI environment map is updated in real-time as lights are added and adjusted, as is the Render View that is lit by it.

HDRI Area Lights

HDR Light Studio can also create and control 3D Area Lights / Emitters inside your 3D software.
These are positioned with the same intuative interface, clicking and dragging on the 3D model.

Area Lights are currently compatible with 3ds Max, Maya, Cinema 4D and MODO Connections.

Use Standalone or Connected

HDR Light Studio can be used standalone - load a 3D scene and produce the perfect HDRI map.

OR

Connect HDR Light Studio with your 3D software and Renderer. Lighting is built and updated live within your 3D software as you light with HDR Light Studio.

Connections are available for:

3ds Max
Maya
Cinema 4D
Modo
VRED
DeltaGen
Rhino
SOLIDWORKS Visualize
LightWave3D
Houdini

I’ve been using HDR Light Studio extensively for the last 2-3 years. With HDR Light Studio 5 the interface has become even more intuitive and most settings are now accessible with a single click making lighting setups even faster.

HDR Light Studio 5 is a great improvement over the previous version. With an improved UI, better and smarter controls and improved connectivity, it really helps speed up the complex lighting setups. We liked version 4, we got a major crush on 5!
