Lightmap Ltd., makers of HDR Light Studio, and Next Limit Technologies, creators of Maxwell Render, have announced HDR Light Studio Live for Maxwell Render, a plugin that provides users with a new approach to lighting objects. This software adds interactive real-time lighting, reflection design and HDRI environment augmentation within Maxwell Studio.
HDR Light Studio Live is designed specifically for HDRI lighting design and enables the replication of a studio photography experience, according to the companies. Containing more than 100 pictures lights, the plugin includes a range of studio light source captures.
HDR Light Studio Live lets users maneuver light sources and effects using Lightmap’s 2D HDR interface, and the results are then visualized in real-time through Maxwell Studios’ Fire (Fast Interactive Rendering) viewport.
The HDR Light Studio Live plugin for Maxwell Render is supported in Maxwell Studio’s 2.5.1 point release, which is free to all existing Maxwell Render version 2.x customers. This point release also includes a watermarked demonstration version of HDR Light Studio Live for Maxwell Render. A demo version of Maxwell Render is also available.
HDR Light Studio Live for Maxwell Render is included with Lightmap’s HDR Light Studio 2.0 Pro Edition. It will also be provided free to all existing HDR Light Studio 2.0 Pro Edition customers.
