Bright Reviews

"I am so delighted to find this addon. I am a 20 year veteran of another 3D program... Made the jump to Blender and am loving it. But one thing I missed was... the HDR Light Studio extension. ... [They] have jacked the price way too high ... At first I spent some time with the LeoMoon addon, but the system is overly complicated. Your Light Wrangler is just the thing I've been looking for! ... Perfect lighting for product shots is now a cakewalk again! Well done, sir!"

"FANTASTIC addon! I absolutely hated placing lights before, this add-on completely flipped that around!! It's now a breeze and super easy to get beautiful results!"

"This is an excellent addon! I had used another program called HDR Light Studio in the past to simplify the lighting process for product modeling, but this is way simpler and gets the job done at a fraction of the price. Just what I needed."
Adam Frangione

"Thank you Leonid. This finally makes setting up lights fun. It is a very intuitive approach to lighting. Now I can't go back to pushing my glowing rectangles through space manually. The Gobos, HDRIs and IES add great value to the package."
