WHAT'S NEW?
 
HDR Light Studio
Resync button has been added to the Render View (HDR Light Studio).
When using HDR Light Studio standalone - the resync button will reload the current scene back into the Render View.
When using HDR Light Studio connected to a 3D app - the resync button will open the 'Import Scene Geometry' panel - so you can re-import the scene from your host 3D software.
This is useful if you have made changes to the scene in your 3D software.

Rhino 6 Connection - (BETA Version)
Rhino 6 support is now released with a new updated Connection workflow. Rhino's rendered viewport is now displayed inside the HDR Light Studio interface where users can paint the shot with lighting.
Compatible with Cycles, Octane, V-Ray, and other renderers using the Rhino Environments for lighting. Read more

Octane Standalone version 4 is now supported

Octane Render version 4
Octane 4 has now been tested, and we can confirm is compatible with our 3ds Max, Maya, Cinema 4D, MODO and Rhino 6 Connection.

Bug Fixes
MODO Connection - Fixed bug where initial state of lighting shared with Modo was black until one lighting change was made.
Maya Connection - Fixed a bug resulting in duplicated area lights caused by a change in Arnold 3.1.1
