New in Xenon Drop 2
Filters enable special effects to be applied to Composite content.
Filters are applied live, even when editing the content of a Composite, like moving, scaling and changing the brightness of lights.
The first filter added to HDR Light Studio is Diffusion and is selected using the new Filter drop-down added to Composite content.
Content Light Properties for Composite Light
The way HDR Light Studio software is designed means that Composites are the only place where image data exists in a format that can be manipulated by Filters. So if you have a HDRI map (a single light), or a HDRI lighting design (multiple lights), then you must first place the lights into a Composite to apply a filter.
Select all the lights in the Light List that you want to add the effect to. Then right-click in the light list and select Merge to Composite.
A new Composite Light is created containing the lights.
The Filters settings are shown at the bottom of the Composite settings on the Light Properties panel.
The first filter added to HDR Light Studio is Diffusion and which can be selected using the Filter drop-down.
