I always wanted a tool to create my own HDR maps, but there weren't any decent tools for this task. Then HDR Light Studio came along and filled this gap for me. It’s a tool to not only to create 3D lighting environments in a very easy and intuitive way, but also to improve your existing HDRs. A must have!
HDR Light Studio has proven itself time and time again in my automotive visualization projects. Simply put, whether I'm creating a custom HDR from scratch or modifying existing HDRs, HDR Light Studio makes my job easier...and who wouldn't want that?

HDR Light Studio is an essential part of our visualisation process. Rather than using stock HDRs this app lets us tailor the lighting exactly to the product. Where we need to place a model into a scene that requires a specific HDR image we use HDR Light Studio to tweak the illumination to best show off the product. We use the app as a plug-in to Keyshot and Maxwell, and it performs flawlessly - it genuinely is painting with light.
HDR Light studio has made lighting faster, more accurate and more fun for me. The traditional way of lighting in CGI always felt awkward to me. After trying out HDR Light Studio on a project, we have never lit any scene without using it.

HDR Light Studio is so fast and interactive, you can actually try out a few different lighting set-ups when lighting objects and scenes, without it taking hours.
HDR Light Studio changed the way we light our scenes completely. With the use of it’s Render View we are able to tweak the smallest highlights in real-time. HDR Light Studio was our best investment we made so far. The costs amortised pretty quickly due to the huge amount of time we saved for lighting.

HDR Light Studio is an excellent solution for creating varying types of lighting scenarios with HDR images. No longer are you stuck with stock HDR images or tediously editing them and constantly re-testing to get the look you want. I honestly can't imagine a lighting pipeline that would not benefit from this tool.
HDR Light Studio has been a game changer from the start putting the artist back on the driving seat, the results speak volumes but it is the flexibility to design the lighting by painting and interactively work that made our work better... This is the kind of modern tools that change how you work for the better, where the director and creative team work in sync and where the final result is what counts. Just brilliant.
