Ramon, Calif. - Right Hemisphere and Lightmap Ltd. announced a new professional
lighting tool for users of Right Hemisphere’s Deep Exploration
authoring software. Lightmap has an easy-to-use, professional lighting
application called HDR Light Studio and has developed a plug-in
version of it specifically for Deep Exploration 6.0 called “HDR Light
Studio Live.” Right Hemisphere and Lightmap are hosting a free Webinar
on Tuesday, December 15 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific time to demonstrate what
this tool can do and how straight-forward it is to apply to models and
Available for purchase in January 2010 from the HDR Light Studio Web site, the software plug-in can create HDRI light and reflection maps for CG renderings and provide instant feedback to users on their rendered scenes.
Users create lighting designs by placing light sources onto a 2D canvas representing a sphere map and interactively modify their properties. As users manipulate the lights on the canvas the shape is automatically distorted in real time so they maintain their shape when mapped onto a lighting sphere.
The HDR Light Studio Live plug-in for Deep Exploration 6.0 will be available in two versions: Basic for $299 U.S. and Pro for $999 U.S.
