Lightmap Ltd is proud to announce the launch of the HDR Light Studio Live plug-in for Luxion KeyShot. HDR Light Studio brings a professional real-time HDRI lighting tool-kit directly into KeyShot to allow users to vastly improve the quality of their renders with custom lighting designs for each shot that brings out the best in the subject. With its simple yet powerful interface, 3D artists, designers and engineers of all levels can quickly transform their shots into works of art to help sell their new ideas. Existing HDR environments can be augmented to improve the quality of their renders with more control over the lighting and reflections.
HDR Light Studio Live for KeyShot is included with the HDR Light Studio 2.0 ‘Pro’ edition – available immediately from the Lightmap web store and from resellers world-wide. Additionally, throughout September and October 2011, HDR Light Studio 2.0 Pro edition will be available with a 25% discount.
One of the unique features of Keyshot is that it is CPU driven not GPU. Keyshot runs on any modern PC or Mac, Unbiased Sampling Techniques that compute mathematically correct results, Scientifically Accurate Materials, Multi-Core Photon Mapping, Adaptive Material Sampling, and a Dynamic Light Core that allow users to see results at the same time as changes are being made. Combined with its ease of use KeyShot gives anybody involved with 3D data the ability to create photographic images in a matter of minutes, independent of the size of the digital model. KeyShot supports many native file formats, including SolidWorks, Rhino, SketchUp, Obj, IGES and STEP.
