HDR Light Studio for LightWave 3D

Real-time HDRI map authoring for LightWave 3D

LightWave3D with HDR Light Studio

"HDR Light Studio gives me super powers when I’m lighting in Lightwave and Octane. It’s FAST and FUN. I’m able to get final lighting in a matter of minutes with many situations. I’ve also have had near impossible lighting situations (shiny metal satellites in space) that I had to ‘light’ with reflections. HDRLS made me and my company look like bad asses when the director saw the shots I did in the final review. Who doesn’t love that? I’m a huge fan of HDR Light Studio and love using it!"
