Studio Environment Set 2 from 9b studios

SES 2 provides a variety of designed HDRI spherical images complete with ground planes for easily obtaining professional-quality studio lighting for product shots, engineering visualizations, advertising art, or packaging shots. It is designed for people who would like to be able choose studio/interior lighting setups but do not want to invest the time set to create custom lighting set-ups for each project. This second Studio Environment Set is particularly suited for those wanting to visualize small to medium sized subjects. Typical users of SES 2 are architects, artists, industrial designers, engineers, packaging specialists or CAD visualization professionals.

In this third variation, the SES 2 environment imbues a more stylized appearance to the cutlery rendering.

  3. “With SES 2, I’ll be spending a lot less time agonizing over my lighting setups. The ability to render an animation and see all 50 environments with zero setup time takes all of the guess work out of studio lighting. Apply the preset, render out a sequence, make a contact sheet, hand it to your client, and they’ll think you’re a lighting guru. The variety of environments in this set is stellar. These are not your typical three-light setups. Most of these would be difficult if not impossible to recreate in a real studio. This makes studio lighting so easy, it’s almost an afterthought.”

  4. “As a developer with a passion for MODO, my passion far outweighs my talent. So to find a kit like SES 2 that can make even my efforts look even halfway decent is awesome. As a hobbyist learning 3D, it can be disheartening when you don’t get a fantastic render like the pros do, but with SES 2, my renders aren’t a disappointment anymore, and that gives me the encouragement and enthusiasm to keep going.”

    – Sam Lee

  6. “The environment trackball in MODO is just amazing. A new way of getting greater control over the HDRI environments. These high quality HDRI environments will create stunning results.”

    – Fredrik Stenson

  7. What is the relationship of SES 2 to SLIK? And to SES 1?

    The HDRI images that make up SES 2 were created using SLIK. SLIK is a separately available Kit from The Foundry that provides all the tools to you need in MODO to create your own unique lighting environments. SES 2 is a collection of ready to use image-based studio lighting environments crafted by the artists at 9b studios. SES 2 is an extension of SES 1 and represents an additional 50 environments that are different from SES 1 but fall under the same workflow.
