Scrim Lighting is a technique used by professional photographers in the studio to light products, jewelry, and even cars. A Scrim Light combines a sheet of translucent material, called a scrim, with a separate light source illuminating the scrim from behind.
HDR Light Studio 8 adds Scrim Lighting that is easy to control, real-time, and renders fast in your 3D software. The light source is easily positioned behind the scrim using the interactive top and front views of the scrim setup.
HDR Light Studio 8 has expanded the LightPaint system. It's now possible to control many more light properties directly in the Render Views and Canvas - such as brightness, position, scale, rotation, and even the Light placement within the Scrim Light. Keyboard shortcuts allow you to change LightPaint tools in any view - speeding up the workflow.
The Polygon content is useful for controlling the shape of lights when used on Alpha Multiply. It includes controls for the edge softness and corner radius.
