Features and details of set.a.light 3D STDUIO


The virtual photo studio

The virtual photo studio allows you to freely edit the dimensions and wall colours of a room and modify or save them at any time. You can construct your lighting set in it. All of the elements arranged in it can be repositioned like in a real studio. The height and angle of the lighting technology can be simply adjusted. You can move freely in your 3D studio area by means of a simple control.

Studio library

In set.a.light 3D STUDIO you will find a miscellany of studio technology and various light shapers available on the market. With it you can build, test and simulate your desired light settings and easily experiment with new settings

NEW! Picture wall

On the picture wall you can display your own pictures in the studio. Simply upload an image (jpg) on the picture wall and use this as a background.
This function enables  you  endless possibilities for your design. You can also use PNG files with transparency, which give you even more options.

An image of a cut out object, which can be done for example in Photoshop, can be uploaded onto the picture wall in set.a.light 3D. Now you can work with the added image on the picture wall.

NEW! Black/White - Color

You can switch the camera between black/white and color.
So you can plan more easily amazing black/white shootings.

Change the color of the clothes

The skin tone and skin glow of the selected model in the studio can be adjusted. The clothes of the models are divided into different categories (e.g. casual wear).

Also a pose can be selected. In the newly added detail settings (show/hide option) the color of clothing can be adjusted. The size of the model can be changed too..

Flash technology and light shapers

In set.a.light 3D STUDIO you will find a collection of studio technology and various light shapers which are available on the market. These enable you to arrange, test and simulate your planned light settings and very simply experiment with new settings.

PDF-Setplan (lighting diagram)

If you want to recreate a lighting setup in a real studio, you always have the option to export a set plan with the Lighting Diagram Creator. Here, you can can find all relevant values and dimensions that will allow you to build the setting in a real studio, next to the camera settings. You are now ready to get started in the Studio and make some great pictures.


Light simulation in real time

Realtime Rendering
Complex algorithms within the software ensure a realistic behaviour of the lighting technology and also enable real-time light simulation and high-speed rendering of the photos created.

Realistic light characteristics

For the first time, real-light data are used in photo software in order to enable a realistic simulation of the behaviour of the lighting technology.

Measured real-light data
A procedure for measuring flash technology has been specially developed in order to achieve true-to-life representation of the lighting characteristics.


The virtual camera

The virtual camera offers all the relevant photo settings which you are used to with a real camera. Thus you can, for example, select the chip size, determine the image aspect ratio and modify the shutter, aperture and ISO number. Decide on the optics of your choice or an objective lens from your repertoire. All settings have a direct effect on the photograph, which you can see in real-time in the preview.

Depth of field

The camera represents all settings realistically. Thus, for example, the depth of field is also represented according to the selected optics, point of focus and selected aperture. This allows you try out in advance creative techniques such as depth of field in a virtual simulation.

Real-time histogram

The integrated histogram offers a permanent and direct control function for the light situation and tonal value distribution from the camera's point of view. It is the key to optimally exposed photographs, and, already during the shot, enables you to avoid over- or underexposure.


Detail settings

If an element is selected in the studio area it can be easily changed within the positioning field. Here, for example, the fixture of a light shaper can be replaced, the light output regulated or a particular light colour chosen via a colour selector. The studio space can also be edited at any time via the detailed settings Thus you can, for example, change the size of the room or the colour of the walls at any time, even retrospectively.


The Timeline, your operational control for the photo shoot

By triggering the camera, a photo is created and automatically saved, together with all relevant data for the set, in a clearly-defined timeline. From there, every setting relating to the photo can be simply reloaded into the virtual studio so that no setting is lost and remains available for future image designs.

NEW: Speedlights / System Flashes

set.a.light 3D enables you to work with the popular Speedlights now. Available for the Speedlights are different light shapers such as Octabox, Light Umbrella, Black Umbrella, Striplight and a small softbox. The possibilities are now almost unlimited - plan a on-location Photoshooting, or learn better how to deal with the Speedlights.

NEW: Add your one Speedlight

You can also bring your own Speedlights in the software and use it there. So you can successfully plan your next shoot and excite the model with great pictures.


NEW: Movable and customizable model


Posing Mannequins, one control element – endless possibilities

You want it, you get it – on popular demand, we are currently working under high pressure to present you moving models. Through a simple control element, you will be able to bring the model to the desired pose. So you can plan incredibly flexible and creative your light setting. Now you can also show the model the desired pose even before the shooting. A more flexible preparation has never existed!

Choose from different posing settings and bring your model with the slider easily into the right position. 

You can not only easily change the posing, but also customize the facial expressions of the model. Choose from various characters and customize these additionally how you want it. In addition, you can change the hair style and hair color. In this way you can adjust perfectly the model on your subsequent shooting.
