What is new in HDRI Studio Rig?
You’ve likely experienced times where you would hit render in Cinema 4D, and your scene wouldn’t have any lighting, reflections, background, or even the proper render settings.
Adding HDRI Studio Rig to your scene will let you immediately start making changes. The latest version (2.148) gives you real-time control over HDRI rotation.
