Buying a plug-in connection improves workflow. The connection seamlessly pushes the model to HDR Light Studio and pulls the environment map back into Cinema 4D without having to import/export via the filesystem. Connections allow you to view each of your lighting changes both in HDR Light Studios optimised renderer and in your 3D apps final renderer.
HDR Light Studio‘s environment map (canvas) is shared with the environment map of the supported renderes in Cinema 4D. During the lighting process a lower resolution map is used for interactive speed. For the final production rendering in Cinema 4D - a full resolution, high dynamic range image is generated and passed through the connection.
Click to Light
Purchasing a connection allows artists to click on the model within the Cinema 4D viewports to position lights on the map.
Supported renderers are Cinema 4D, V-Ray, Maxwell and Octane Render.
The HDR Light Studio lighting project is embedded within the Cinema 4D scene file. So the scene lighting can be reloaded and edited in the future.
Send all or part of your Cinema 4D scene directly into the HDR Light Studio. Exchange formats are Collada or OBJ.
