In this Quick Tip, I demonstrates the use of HDRi Studio GENERATOR, showing how it can be employed using different parameters.Showing how to build your own HDRI image inside Cinema 4D. Using the bake texture tag you can make every Cinema 4D scene into a HDRI and use it for lighting with global illumination.
Use the HDRi Studio GENERATOR Without Baking a HDRI Image
You can use this studio without baking the HDRI, this method will requir the enabling the Global Illumination option in the Render Settings. (watch the video below)
HDRi Studio GENERATOR
What is it?
A useful tool that allows you to generate your own studio HDR images.
Quickly generate your HDRI studio with realistic lights directly in Cinema 4D.
NOTE: All parameters is animatable.
What it’s NOT.
This is not a plugin. These tools work seamlessly with Cinema 4D. Just add the HDRi Studio Generator to your scene and all the controls are there to Create your own Studio HDRI.

A great job!
Just a “negative” comment: It would be better if we could animate all the elements in the scene; for exemple the walls (size, height…), the camera, etc…
Could you do it?
Thx for this good tool!
Problem is now fixed! All parameters is animatable.
merciiiiiiii sa fonctionne bien
Je suis content que ça vous a plu.

Note: To Baking a HDRI Image this tool is optimized with
Ambient Occlusion for a best & Fastest rendering.

I tested this product in c4d r15 and i found that the camera doesn’t work (instead you can use the rotate tool to move around) that’s the only real big issue for me, but even with this, i must say this is a great product and i love it! and i think this product has much more potential!
Suggestions: 1.Release HDRi Studio GENERATOR V2 (now with vray integration, texture integration, better camera options and rendering)
2. Free upgrade for owners of the hdri studio generator.
3. New tutorials
I just retest this toul, I haven’t problem with the camera rotations. I used the panel “camera” Take a look at the picture below:
I have taken good note of your suggestions and I thank you very much.
I remain at your disposal for any further details.

Again, congratulations on this fantastic product!

Very beautiful job, thanks for sharing and for your time and effort making it easier the artists!
Thank you, I really appreciate it 🙂
Hi when are you going to have the plug in for R16? please make one I will more than one 🙂
This tool work perfectly with R16, I just forgot to update “The Requirements infos” in this post
Nice tools, but…
Is there a .PDF of the video tutorial ? or some other documentation other than the demonstration video ?
If so, I will buy, but otherwise I will not
Sorry there is no PDF of the video tutorial, But the use of this tool is too easy!
I think the video tutorial is enough to understand the use of this tool.
It is very nice product.
Can I export my custom HDR files generated in this product to use in diffetent software (as an example in 3ds Max)?
Yes, you can use the generated HDRI in other 3d software (as 3ds Max).
Thank you very much for that information.
I am studing your products these days. I got to know about your products just yesterday.
Hope to buy some soon.
Thank you again
If I download HDRI studio generator, how can I connect it to Camera 4D Studio?
Do I have to keep both softwares open at same time?
Actually, I can not understand the word ”seamlessly”.
A value your explanation.
This tool works only in Cinema 4D. If you wish to use the generated HDRi in 3ds Max
Here the procedure to use :
Generate your HDRi as explained in the Tutorial at ” 7 minute 8s ” Screenshot
Then in 3ds max you can import the generated HDRi image (Exemple of image generated with this tool).
Check this post to show how to set up HDRI environment in 3ds Max :
I tried to pay today for HDRI Studio Generator. Then I saw a message that you are going to deliver it to an address.
Are you going to post it to me?
I thought after payment I can directly download it to my PC.
Kindly let me know about it.
All of our products are available for instant download after payment.
Thank you Mustapha.
I will proceed soon.
Anyway our free “Studio Kit for Cinema 4D” works on my software. I am very happy about it.
I purchased HDRI Studio Generator two days ago. It is a very nice product. The video tutorial which is published in this web is very good but it explains very basics. However, I would like to suggest you to publish few more video tutorials to understand more about this software. That will help to get maximum out from your product. It will help more artists all over the world.
Thank you for your effort.
Thank you for your purchase and for your suggestion.
