Render View [HDR Light Studio] improvements
Fast Area Lights - Enable this check box and a single average color/brightness is used for the illumination contribution of the area lights. This means a less noisy render result is achieved far faster.
Upgraded Render View to use Embree 3.4.0 tracing engine - faster performance on many scenes - up to 40% faster.

Cinema 4D Connection
