Light Kit Pro 3 Suite includes the studio lighting plugin and all 120 studio presets, compatible with Standard, Physical, Arnold, Octane, and Redshift renderers
The original Greyscalegorilla plugin, rebuilt and reimagined for today’s 3D artists. This is the all-new Light Kit Pro 3. Create professional studio lighting for products and objects with total control.
YOUR NEW LIGHT KITLight Kit Pro 3 introduces seven new light types. Have total control over Softbox, Umbrella, Kino Flo, LED Ring, Ring, Panel, and Ambient lights. Each light includes unique parameters and unique geometry.
The popular softbox light has been rebuilt into a customizable softbox, giving you the ability to create countless light shapes with unprecedented control over your reflections. The softbox now allows for multiple edges, meaning you can choose between a three-sided, square, round, or octagonal softbox.
All seven lights includes optional physical objects for the surface, housing, stands, and mounts. This will create more realistic reflections and parallax. You will have separate control over the cast light and the reflected light, allowing you to precisely dial in a look. You can independently brighten a reflection without affecting the overall brightness.
To make overall light adjustments easier, we’ve introduced several new controls. New light placement controls allow for easy targeting, distance, rotation, pitch, and tilt. Keep track of each of your lights with custom light icons that adapt to the color temperature of your lights.
Trying to solo a particular light? Just double-click to isolate. Need to know how a light is being cast on an object? Hop into POV Placement to see the light’s perspective and dial in with absolute precision.
Want to adjust the global scale, intensity, temperature, or tint of all the lights in your scene? Use the new Light Kit Studio object and parent all child lights for easy control. Worried about how the light will work in other renderers? We have carefully calibrated every light to look as similar as possible when using the new Render Switch feature.
SO MUCH MORE THAN LIGHTSStudio lights are only the beginning. Complete your studio with instant backdrops, or select from professionally lit studio presets.
Instant Backgrounds and Platforms
Light Kit Pro 3 introduces 9 customizable cyc objects, L-curve, S-curve, C-curve, half pipe, corner, curve cove, half dome, dome, and cylinder stand.
Each cyc (cyclorama) object allows for easy adjustments of length, width, height, depth, and curve.
RENDER-READY STUDIOSLight Kit Pro 3 gives you the ease of creating your own studios using the lights and cyc objects, allowing you to save your own custom Light Kit Pro Studios for future use. In addition, the plugin ships with 40 Studio Essential presets, professionally built lighting studios that are render-ready so you only have to drop your object into your scene and go.
All studio presets can be adjusted, customized, and saved as new studio presets. Light Kit Pro 3 Suite includes 40 Product Studios for commercial product renders, and 40 Pop Studios that are vibrant and colorful for motion graphics and design.
