Adding Lights to Rendering


New member
My company is thinking about purchasing the full ARX but need to know if we are able to replicate LED lights (we need 16 individual lights) to the model being rendered. Can this be done? If so, how?
We are also looking into Keyshot, but would like to keep everything in one suite of products.

You can add up to 5 lights using ARX, so if you need 16 your in trouble. After using keyshot and bunkspeeds "shot" (former hypershot) i would suggest you look more in to one of those. Imho i think any of the "shots" creates better rendering, and are a bit more simple to use.
