HDR Light Studio for VRED

HDR Light Studio adds powerful lighting controls to Autodesk VRED. Lighting is a key ingredient in creating the perfect render. Real-time HDRI map and Area Light creation and control takes image quality to a higher level. Simply click on the model in VRED to position lights and effects instantly.

"In the past, a HDRI was a closed format for us. We had to use it 'as it was'. With HDR Light Studio, these files are open and fully accessible - it's like painting with light! This tool gives us total creative freedom."

Tom Nowak
