Update highlights in detail
Godox AD200 Flash Head
You will now find the Godox AD200 as a preset in set.a.light 3D and you can use it for all light shapers in the “monolights” category (in tab “Monolight”).
This is how you proceed:
Place any light shaper in the studio and then select the “Godox AD200” preset in the settings on the left. In the studio you can now see that the light source has changed and the AD200 is used. The control range has also been automatically adjusted, so you can use the AD200 in set.a.light 3D exactly as you will later set it in the real studio.
You can also use the Godox AD200 without a light shaper. To do this, drag the flash head into the studio without the light shaper. Now you can change the preset to Godox AD200 in the settings on the left. Additionally you can now choose between bare bulb, speedlight head and round head. This setting is only possible as long as no light shaper is used.
(Note: With a light shaper, the bare bulb of the AD200 is always used).
New light shapers for Aputure continuous lights
Version V2.5.8f provides new light shapers for the popular Aputure continuous lights. New additions include the Light Dome Mini II 55 cm, Light Box 60 X 90 cm and Light Box 30 x 120 cm. (The new light shapers are available for the LS 120D II, LS C300D II and LS 300X). This means that there are now up to 7 different light shapers to choose from for this type of light.
