Studio Lighting & Illumination (SLIK) Kit


Studio Lighting & Illumination (SLIK) Kit


Bring the realism of a studio shoot into your CG-based production
Whether you just need a quick fix lighting solution to drop a model into or a streamlined way to build your own lighting studio, SLIK will accelerate your workflow with content and controls not found in any other lighting system. Add lights, arrange, tweak light controls. Render. Need a spherical HDR image of the studio? No problem, just drop a spherical camera preset, flip a switch and render your custom high-quality HDR image. And you can do all this while seeing your renders or spherical map interactively using Preview Renderer.

Get professional results using these integrated lighting environments
SLIK consists of lighting assembly presets, scenes, material presets, mesh presets, HDR image based environments, instructional videos and a guided manual to help you light your MODO scenes with incredible realism.

Light your scenes with custom lighting “rigs”
The lighting assembly presets are lights and reflectors that are mounted on tripods, booms or hang from the ceiling with pantograph supports. These have been modeled to a high level of detail – right down to the folds in the fabric of the light reflectors — to bring studio quality production values to your MODO work. Just like in a real studio, these “rigs” let you control light placement and parameters like sizing and color, and easily adjust things like how far open you want “barn door” flaps to be for your shot. A variety of platform backdrops are provided that you can scale and adjust for 1, 2 or 4-sided backdrops or artificial horizons.

Use industry-standard IES light files
The lights utilize IES light files, which can be freely downloaded from light bulb manufacturing sites. They provide real-world accuracy and can dramatically improve the realism in your renders. Or you can just as easily turn the lighting system into a luminous polygon-based lighting solution at the flip of a switch. All the controls are made available in the MODO viewport so that placement and adjustment is just like you were moving the lights in a real studio.

Work in different scale environments easily
SLIK ships with a variety of HDR-based lighting environments arranged according to the scale of the scene as follows:

•Small: jewelry, accessories

•Medium: electronic devices, consumer products, packaging

•Large: automotive

•Portrait: people, creatures

Extend SLIK by adding your own components
In addition to using the pre-built environments included with SLIK, you can configure the lights, reflectors, platforms and cameras into a custom lighting solution (including HDR image creation).
