Do these work with the UberLightKit Controller and/or UberEnvironment? Also, how well do they work swapping/adding UberSpot/UberPoint, or do these have all of the features such as falloff/gobo/barndoors that those lights have?

And yes beautiful renders, both promos and Scorpio’s

All of the Photo Studio Lights will work with UberSoft Lighting or UberEnvironment. You can get very nice results if you set the UbE to Bounce or Indirect Lighting (but these require a big strong, fast render machine and will greatly increase render times).

No, you can’t swap out for UberSpots or UberPoints. I’m sure you could turn off the mesh light and parent the UberSpot if you really wanted to but the quality of light created by the mesh lights is very different from an UberSpot. You could UberSpots/Points to a scene with Photo Studio Lights. The Area Light Shader supports falloff, the Gel Light (only) supports gobos. None have built in barndoors but any plane put in front of/to the side of one of the mesh lights will do the job quite nicely smile

Bought them! How will I know when the beta will be released that fixes the lights? I know InaneGlory said later this week but will I recieve some kind of notice or something?

I don’t know if they will notify anyone about it but as soon as I know its released I’m sure I’ll be going out of my way to lets as many people know how it get it. Plus, then I finally get to upgrade to 4.5 too smile I really wanted to re-render the feather dancer with April’s new feather hair but I can’t get them together in the same scene quite yet.

These lights are worth getting even if you have to wait a few days to use them.

Love the emotion in these

Edit: kind of sucks the original pictures get lost in the reply’s

Looks like the part of the features list that talks about the compatibility between the 3 sets of Photo Studio Lights didn’t make it into the final version of the page. The features list should have this at the bottom:

Fully compatible with Photo Studio and Photo Studio 2 light and presets

  All poses and presets for set X1 will work with the light sets from Photo Studio 1

  All poses and presets from Photo Studio 1 will work on set X1

  All poses and presets for set X2 will work with the Twin Key light sets from Photo Studio 2

  All poses and presets from the Twin Key light sets from Photo Studio 2 will work on set X2

  All poses and presets for set X3 will work with the Twin Fill light sets from Photo Studio 2

  All poses and presets from the Twin Fill light sets from Photo Studio 2 will work on set X3

  All of the textures from each of the 3 Photo studio sets will work on each of the 3 background props

Built in DS3.1.2.24

By very different I take it you mean you don’t find the UberSpot works as well as the mesh light? Does the mesh light allow adjusting falloff the same as the US/UP?

Also, the reason I was asking about the UberSoft Light Kit is that it supposedly manages all of the shadows of all of the lights and in doing so cuts down on render time. Is this redundant to features in Photo Studio 3? Also, Photo Studio 3 you said you could move the lights, swap them out etc.. so I guess I’m wondering if the UberSoft Light Kit is beneficial or redundant.

Just because I may have a strong opinion doesn’t make it any more (or less) correct than any other, just that I feel passionately a particular way at that moment.

Comparing the UberArea Light & UberSpot Light is like comparing apples and oranges. Yes, fall off is handled pretty much the same.

UberSoft only manages the shadows created by the special lights that come with the kit, not any regular DS lights or other Uber lights so it’s not going to speed things up by itself. But if you where to light up a large set (light Stonemason’s Backstreets with lots of UberSoft lights and then used PS3 lights to frame your subject it would probably help speed up your render times.

This set was designed to specifically around the UberEnvironment/UberSpot or UberSoft Lighting

Scorpio60dragon, fabulous renders as always. There is so much feeling in the on with the 2 mech women. The guy in the bathtub is just creepy. (Is that AntFarm’s kill zone set?) You are doing awesome work with the gel lights too. It is always a treat to see you pictures.

pete.c64, very fun pic with the Zip Speedy. Great skin on the lady in black. I’m glad you’re having a good time with all the settings and the backgrounds.

Thanks for the comments Knight22179, JimmyC_2009, reeylor, gingercakes47, and Gedd.

I’m loving all the renders. Thanks so mucb for sharing them and keep them comiing everyone.
More questions? Post them here and we’ll get back to you.

cheers!
