LuxologyÂ®, an independent technology company developing next-generation 3D content creation software, is today introducing a new Studio Lighting & Illumination Kit (SLIK) created by Yazan Malkosh, an extensive collection of presets, scenes, items, materials and video tutorials to help customers light computer-generated (CG) creations. Designed specifically for users of modoÂ®, Luxologyâ€™s modern 3D modeling, painting and rendering application, SLIK provides realistic lighting of scenes that mimics those found in the real world of photography.
â€œCG artists and designers often spend a fair amount of time refining lighting solutions to bring out the best in their models,â€? said Brad Peebler, president of Luxology. â€œWith SLIK, artists are easily able to bring the realism of a studio shoot into a CG-based production and create amazing 3D renderings that are vivid and believable.â€?
The kit includes an extensive collection of accurately modeled lights, tripods, booms, cameras, reflectors and platform backdrops, all of which have been modeled to a high level of detail to bring studio-quality production values to customers’ scenes. The kit also includes pre-built lighting set-ups that support small-scale, medium-scale, large-scale and portrait studio photography.
“The staging and lighting of a subject can be time-consuming and frustrating without the proper tools, but SLIK allows me to stage and light a scene quickly and painlessly,â€? said freelance illustrator Warner McGee. â€œMaking small or even large adjustments to the scene is simple and straightforward with these precise and flexible tools.â€?
Pricing and Availability
The Studio Lighting & Illumination Kit is available immediately for the suggested retail price of USD $125. modo 401 is required to use the kit and is sold and supported by a network of authorized Luxology resellers around the globe.
