SLIK 2 for MODO -- Studio Lighting & Illumination Kit

Bring the Realism of a Studio Shoot to Your CG-based Production

SLIK 2 for MODO Studio Lighting & Illumination Kit, (the Studio Lighting and Illumination Kit) is an extensive toolkit of items, presets, scenes, materials and video tutorials to help MODO artists create the lighting setups they require for high-quality rendering. Without SLIK 2 for MODO, artists spend considerable time refining light settings and setups to bring out the best in CG models; this process is often started from scratch and the result frequently lacks realism. SLIK 2 for MODO lets you quickly put together studio lighting setups that mimic those found in the real world of photography, making renders more vibrant and believable, and helping you finish the job in less time. Nothing comes close to this type of streamlined workflow for creating realistic lighting setups with real-world lighting nuances that accentuate your creations.

Studio Lighting and Illumination Kit Includes:

  • 15 base assembly presets
  • 20 lighting setups covering small-scale, medium-scale, large-scale and portrait studio photography
  • 20 x 2K HDR environment maps
  • 34 x 4K lighting textures
  • 12 material presets
  • Instructional videos
  • Guided manual

Key Features and Benefits

Whether you start with one of the included presets, or build your own setup from the provided components, studio lighting in MODO has never been faster or easier. What's more, support for working interactively with MODO's Preview renderer means you can iterate without interruptions, to refine your work in less time. The lighting assembly presets—which make up the core of the kit—make use of luminous polygons, lights and IES light files, which can be freely downloaded from light bulb manufacturing sites or from the The Foundry Community Asset Site. They provide a realistic lighting pattern for the system and can dramatically increase the realism in renders. All the controls are made available in the viewport, so you can focus on refining your lighting while getting direct feedback. You can light a scene from the camera point of view in a similar way that traditional photographers approach lighting--you can even select where on the object you want the highlight or light to hit, as opposed to the manual approach of moving tripods. Image--based lighting is a breeze in SLIK 2 for MODO. Simply load a studio preset, render out a custom high-quality HDR panorama, and then easily replace the studio lighting with the HDR. Or, start from one of the included HDRs or one you've created within SLIK 2 for MODO, swap in the studio lighting used to create it at the click of a button, and make tweaks to customize the environment for your needs—then bake back to HDR. 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 2 for MODO offers a combination of features and ease-of-use not found in any other lighting system. Add lights, arrange, tweak light controls, render.
