All of the Photo Studio Lights will work with UberSoft Lighting or UberEnvironment…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

Ty, all of the information was very helpful smile

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.

Another cool lighting set InaneGlory shame I can’t use them yet. I started using Area Lighting a lot more about a year ago so it will be fun reverse engineering these. smile

Thanks for all the lovely comments.
I love the effect these lights give when using just one of them, the Bathroom scene was done with just one Broadlight. And yes its Antfarms killzone - love those little sets.

This one was done with one of the presets and just the back light removed.

We are getting into the Halloween season. So I thought I’d throw this in.

Can additional light gel textures be used with this set? I’m using DS 4.5, so I’m afraid I can’t experiment with this light set till the fix comes out later this week.

Specifically, I’m looking at buying the Chaos Neurotic Light Gels for DS that’s on sale today and using those light gel textures with Inane Glory’s Photo Studio 3. But I’m completely new to light gels and don’t know if this is possible…

Thanks for your help!

Yes, you can use other gel textures or create your own. But you probably can’t use them as is, straight or of the box. They’ll probably need a little tweaking in a photo editor (Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro, Gimp etc). You need to turn your gels into negative images to get the gel mesh light to display them correctly. It’s a little quirk in the make up of the Area Light Shader. 1000x1000 is the default texture size but just about anything will work smile

Thanks! That was very helpful, and just what I needed to know.

No, no you don’t get to get away with that one. I just gave you the tools, the skills (& the vision) is all you! wink

Cool render Pete!

The new 4.5 beta with the fixed Area Light is out!
I just installed and tested it all three version of Photo Studio will now work in 4.5

They also fixed the geometry switching issue so you no long need different versions of the light rigs in Photo Studio 3, the DS3 and DS4 versions both load fine in DS4.5 now. Off to see about how much faster 4.5 really is…

grin

Edit: got so excited I forgot to add the link:

Tested out the lights in 4.5 and they seem to act just as they’re supposed to. I’d heard other saying that the other lights in 4.5 seem not as bright as they did in 4.0.3 so I was a little worried. It definitely rendered faster but I’m not sure how much faster it really is.
1st one is in 4.5 w/April’s new hair
2nd one is in 4.0.3
