A better way to light up your shot with HDR LIGHT STUDIO v5.4
The click and drag lighting controls are joined by full three-axis rotation of 3D mapped lighting setups.
Adam Michell is the Product Rendering Artist at Logitech, based in the heart of Silicon Valley. He has been trying out HDR Light Studio v5.4 and gives his opinion on its performance. “Our main focus here in California is creating product imagery, where we create detailed studio shots for packaging and web,” he explains. “We're beginning to introduce more rich content in the form of product animations and lifestyle interior renders. We require very precise positioning of lights and HDR Light Studio v5.4 allows us to achieve this with greater ease and speed. It’s even more intuitive to use. These new transform tools work like my brain thinks.”
“I'm very excited to start utilizing the adjustable pivot feature and the local transformations. I'm always working with producers and art directors who can easily relate to moving lights around on a photography shoot but struggle when relating to lighting in 3D.”
HDR Light Studio integrates 3D lights into the workflow. You can now have the best of both worlds; exploration while seeing the planes move in the 3D space around your model, as well as precise control if you need specific light positions.
“Being able to click on my product and have the light focus exactly where I click is something I take for granted now. This can be very useful when trying catch highlights or be very precise with my positioning,” adds Michell.
There are 32 additional Studio Light Sources added to the Preset Library and v5.4’s connection to Maxon Cinema 4D now supports R18.
