In this series of lessons, we will learn how to use HDR Light Studio and Maya together in order to create high-quality studio lighting for your automotive renders. We will begin this course in Maya, where we will learn how to set up an image-based lighting environment in preparation for rendering. From there, we will jump into HDR Light Studio, which will allow us to easily create high dynamic range images which can mimic realistic studio lighting. We will learn how to control the appearance of synthetic lights within HDR Light Studio, as well as discuss many techniques which can dramatically increase the efficiency of your lighting workflow in both Maya and HDR Light Studio. Software required: Maya 2010 or higher, HDR Light Studio 1.5 or higher.
