HDR Light Studio provides a fast and precise way to light a 3D model. The lighting design is saved as a high dynamic range, high resolution environment map. If you purchase the connection, you can see the lighting evolve in your final render windows in Rhino 3D as you shape the lighting in HDR Light Studio.
HDR Light Studio's environment map (canvas) is shared with the environment map of the supported renderers in Rino3D. 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.
Purchasing a connection allows artists to click on the model within Rhino viewports to position lights on the map.
Supported renderers are V-Ray and Brazil (Neon)
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.
