How do area lightmaps work?

This pack uses the same HDRI Link workflow that our users already love. Just add the HDRI Link tag to your area light, then texture with the Area Light Map of your choice.

Use the HDRI Browser to sample different looks just by clicking on different Area Light Maps.

You can then scale and position your area lights, adjust the exposure, and even change the color temperature from warm to cool.

Which Greyscalegorilla Lighting Tool is right for me?

Trying to find the best lighting tool for your workflow? Let’s take a look at the various Greyscalegorilla lighting products.

For quick environments with minimal control, apply any of our HDRI packs to your Dome Lights with HDRI Link or HDRI Studio Rig. They are perfect for environments but don’t offer much in terms or control outside of rotation and exposure.

Area Light Maps offers more advanced control of your lighting in Arnold, Octane, Redshift and other third-party render engines. Quickly texture area lights and achieve real-world results with HDRI Link.

Area Light Maps allow for scaling, exposure, and color temperature adjustments. They can also be used on multiple Area Lights, allowing you to create traditional studio looks or unique configurations. Note that Area Light Maps are not compatible with Physical/Standard due to limitations of Cinema 4D.

For ultimate control of your lighting in Cinema 4D, Light Kit Pro offers total power over several types of fixtures, cyc backdrops, and Render Switch technology for Physical/Standard, Arnold, Octane, and Redshift renderers.
