Lightmap HDR Light Studio Tungsten lets you easily create and edit HDR lighting (HDRI map & HDR Area Lights) with your existing 3D software.
Watch this video to get an overview of what HDR Light Studio can bring to your lighting workflow in your 3D software
Live HDRI Map
The HDRI map updates in real-time as lights are added and adjusted. The interactive render updates with these changes
HDR Area Lights
HDR Light Studio creates and controls HDR Area Lights / Emitters inside your 3D software.
A user can right click on a Preset and select ‘Add to Favorites’ or ‘Remove From Favorites’. You can then filter to view only your favorite presets using the heart button. This saves a lot of time hunting through lists of lights when you know the ones you like to use often.
Replace all lights with a Rig Preset
Right click on a rig preset and select – Replace Lights with Rig, to delete all current lights and add the rig lights. A much faster way to audition different lighting rigs.
Hover on a Preset for a larger preview
You can now hover over a Preset Thumbnail and a larger preview will appear that includes additional useful information about the preset. For example, pixel resolution on images, mapping used on lights etc. Images are now shown at the correct aspect ratio on Presets.
Improved workflows with Content and Element Presets
You can now create new lights directly from all ‘Content’ and some ‘Element’ presets. You will be asked if you want to make a 3D or Background Light.
Area Light Toggle
New keyboard shortcut to toggle Area Light checkbox on 3D lights. CTRL + SPACE BAR (CMD + SPACE BAR on MacOS). A big time saver!
Support added for:

Save Render View Images – This Project menu item has been updated to save out all Render Views as EXR files, both the internal and external rendered image when available.
Saving Render View Images during Production Render – Has been updated to save out all Render Views as PNG files with LUT baked into image.
HDR Light Studio ‘Project files’ are about 8 times smaller in file size in this release than previous versions. We now only save the active settings on each light in the project. Performance may be improved when used via a connection as a result.
The updated about box contains more information and a ‘Copy Details to Clipboard’ feature, which can provide our support team with useful information about your installation for trouble shooting.
HDR Light Studio Changes:
Reflection Fresnel settings have been simplified for HDR Light Studio’s Render View. Fresnel setting is now set using only an IOR setting. Removing the none physical approaches of ‘None’ and ‘Custom’.
Image Saturation and Gamma ‘up and down’ arrow button increments were too big and have been reduced to steps of 0.1. (Customer request)
Render Progress Bar now orange – easier to notice when a render has completed. (Customer request)
Render View and Canvas tool settings are no longer stored within project files. This caused confusion when a scene loaded and the tools changed.
Color Profile (LUT) dropdowns can now accommodate wider LUT names. These were truncated and with ACES LUTS this made them hard to correctly identify and select.
