by | Sep 21, 2017 | 0 comments

Esben Oxholm has a new video to take you through the process of creating three-point lighting using the HDRI Editor in KeyShot 7.

It’s a quick video where he first explains what three-point lighting is, then shows you how to create your HDRI environment and set up each light (pin) in your KeyShot scene using the integrated HDRI Editor. He points out important factors to consider along the way concerning position, strength and color. It’s a great tutorial that will help you gain familiarity with both custom lighting and using the KeyShot HDRI Editor to light your scene.
