A new release of HDR Light studio adds the ability to place lights by their edges. Light Studio lets you add lights to a scene by clicking on the part of the model where you want to see that light’s effect. It’s a great way to art direct scene lighting. Now with Light Handles, you can place lights by their edges. The handle is easily moved using the sliders or by dragging directly in the Light preview image.
Simply click the place where you want the light’s edge to fall and HDR Light Studio will place a light there. Really handy!
