Personally coming from the traditional photography world into CGI, HDR Light Studio is great with the understanding of real world lighting and allows me to create imagery better and faster. Truly one of the best tools for a CGI tool box!.
I'm more of techie than an artist, but even I can create pretty good looking images with this easy to use tool, and the team of artists I support really do some outstanding work with HDR Light Studio as a key component of the process. Bonus: Support from Lightmap is always outstanding.

I’m a graphic designer and Adobe Certified Instructor and HDR changed definitely our approach with light on our 3D projects. It’s simple, speed and user-friendly. It is not necessary to know how manage the light with photographic experience, you have to simply move and livelight make a magic. This software help to us to increase our productivity with Modo and Maxwell Render. Must have!
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 is a real paradigm shift concerning lighting in a 3D environment. By making the interface simple and fast it makes it spontaneous, which is all important to us as artists. It helps us focus on lighting more, and to create subtle refined lighting effects that would be painstaking to create otherwise.
If you want to get into higher level with your renderings and decrease the time spent on the lighting set-ups HDR Light Studio is definitely THE SOLUTION!

HDR Light Studio was invaluable for getting quality and fast results in the lighting – we were able to light accurately and in a very creative way, definitely making the process very enjoyable and intuitive for the lighting artist.
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.
