|Product Name:||BOSS Pro Light Set for Portraits & Promos|
Ask any professional 3D artist what the three most important elements of their workflow are, and they will all repeat the same mantra: Lighting, lighting, lighting. There is a reason why major animation studios such as Pixar invest in a dedicated lighting department; there is nothing more essential to a beautiful render than a good light set. And is there equally nothing more complex and elusive to get right. Without good lighting, even the best and most detailed models will look flat and unprofessional. But with proper lighting, even the simplest of designs—yes, even a primitive shape such as a sphere or cube—could look dynamic and dramatic.
Enter the BOSS Pro Light Set for Iray. It has everything you need to jump right in and make professional looking portraits and promos to showcase your work. Everything has already been laid out and tweaked to the right balance, from key lights, to fill lights, to hair lights, to rim lights, a textured studio backdrop, honeycomb filters, and even a dedicated light for the ears! (for subsurface scattering) Everything works together to produce the most eye-popping and realistic results. Plus, it is the same set used by The Philosopher in his promo art (Many people have asked about his light set. So he decided to improve upon it, and release it to the public).
And it could not be easier to use. Simply load the light set, choose a preset, move your camera to the ideal zone for that preset (or switch to an included camera), and load your model. You will be amazed how a simple light set can inspire your creativity again. In minutes you can get the same professional portraits and close-up details that merchants and published artists use to sell their work online.
If that is not enough, also included is a 13-page PDF guide on how to light like a pro in Iray, with tips and trade secrets, why softbox lighting is superior to HDRI for portraits, explanations of presets, and much more.
