Official Release – set.a.light 3D V2.5

It’s time! set.a.light 3D V2.5 with the new community platform (beta) is available! The lighting simulator for photographers and filmmakers!

The upgrade is FREE for all V2.0 owners! (See the FAQ below for more information)!

Say hello to a new and powerful platform for the exchange of lighting setup and lighting knowledge – directly in set.a.light 3D!

The new community connects all set.a.light 3D users around the world with each other and should help you get the best out of your work.

For us at elixxier it has long been a concern to network all set.a.light 3D users and to create the possibility to work even more creatively. With the new community we believe we have taken an important step in this direction.

A new place for your lighting setups,
a new place for creativity

By publishing your light setups on the community platform, you can get feedback from photographers around the world or just give insights into your work and present it in seconds. Everything is always just a click away and directly integrated into set.a.light 3D!

You can also browse through the ever-growing archive of lighting setups and see how other photographers design their lighting setups. Get inspired and learn together with and from each other.

In the last step before the upload, you can optimize the setplan and select the main light. When you are done, click on “Upload”.

Upload to the Community

In the last step you can customize the name of the image on the right and choose the categories your image fits to. If you already have a real image for your setup, you can also upload and present it. Now a short description and you can publish your work.

If you click on “Light Setups” after uploading, you will see your image in the feed.
Of course you can edit and adjust your Setup later.

Take your time to look around in the community and get to know everything.
