New: Lightmap HDR Light Studio 8 Released
Lightmap, a tool to help artists create perfect studio lighting, released a major update today: HDR Light Studio 8. The new version introduces new features like the Scrim Light and adds LightPaint enhancements.
Scrim Light, a revolutionary new digital light type, recreates real-world studio lighting setups. It allows artists to light 3D models just as you would in a real-world photo shoot. Create subtle, beautiful effects that otherwise be impossible to recreate with standard digital techniques.
HDR Light Studio’s LightPaint is a patented method for positioning lights. Simply click and drag on a 3D model in the Render View to interactively move highlights and reflections around on its surface. While this is happening, the software automatically repositions the corresponding light in real-time.
In the HDR Light Studio 8 update, each Render View now has its own LightPaint mode drop-down, as does the Canvas. This allows you to control many more light properties, such as brightness, scale, and rotation. You can even place light within the Scrim Light.
