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.

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.
 

How to place your lights into a Composite Light

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.
