HDR Light Studio for Rhino

HDR Light Studio revolutionizes the lighting workflow in Rhino. It provides a fast and creative approach to lighting. Spend less time with tedious setup or trial and error - gain more time to experiment and polish the final shot.

To use HDR Light Studio live within Rhino, purchase HDR Light Studio and the Rhino Connection. The Connection creates the bridge between the two apps.

Connection Features

Shared Map

HDR Light Studio's environment map (canvas) is shared with the environment map of the supported renderers in Rhino. During the lighting process a lower resolution map is used for interactive speed. For the final production rendering in Rhino3D - a full resolution, high dynamic range image is generated and passed through the connection.

Click to Light

Purchasing a connection allows artists to click on the model within Rhino viewports to position lights on the map.

Render Support

Supported renderers: Rhino Render, Brazil, Neon, Octane, V-Ray.

Embedded Projects

The HDR Light Studio lighting project is embedded within the Rhino scene file. So the scene lighting can be reloaded and edited in the future.


Bringing HDR Light Studio directly into your Rhino lighting workflow can save time to light, increase image quality, improve creative control and reduce final render times.
