Hi,most of the other software packages have a plugin for lightstudio.
Is there something in the pipeline for Bunkspeed Pro?

Are you requesting this purely to take advantage of the "live update" functionality?

That's what I'd be looking for. Is there any other reason for a plugin for that? It's easy enough to save and drag the file onto the viewport.

And I'm not sure I'd go so far as to say Most other software has a plugin. That's a stretch.

Hi David, yes,live update would be a great improvement.Iīm a photographer and in lightstudio i can build my setups like i do in the studio.
For me, itīs very time-consuming to match the hdr i render in hdr studio with the imported hdr in BS.Often, i only make the main light in lightstudio
and do the other lighting by emissives or lights in pro.
The problem is, i can export obj or fbx.Lightstudio support obj,mi and in version 3 collada.By exporting obj iīm losing camera data and i have to match the perspective
by eye.Not very precise.Most of my models have a glossy surface, so differences in rotating 1-2 degrees or focal length changes the light totally.
I tried to export as fbx,convert it in autodesk fbx converter to dae and import this in lightstudio, but this didnīt work.
