Some comments

"Awesome. I'm a filmmaker so more settings/locations will be awesome." @ Moe-Gunz

"A marvelous tool for the photographer!Yes I give it five stars. Its a beautiful App! " @ Teo

"Nice!Good app! " @ M

"I am yet to fully explore the full range of what this app offers, but this is the first non trivial app for photographers I have come across.  FANTASTIC VALUE!"

"Well done bravo 3D lighting effects viewable without even setting up lights great for planning and not wasting studio and model's time. Beautiful use of touch interface. Must have for any studio photographer."

"This is an awesome tool for learning advanced lighting techniques through rapid experimentation, without physically moving a ton of equipment around and seeing the result of each change. Shows real-time effect of changes to the light, and includes a large variety of lights. Neat 3-D graphics rendering."

"Great App at a Great Price." @ Michael

"This is awsome! It will save hours of studio setup time." @ Peter

"Great StuffIt's a great & complete app" @ mehras1991

Anyway on with the app......

Studio Light Rigger (SLR) allows you to plan in 3D your favourite lighting set-ups, those set-ups can be Loaded/Saved to a library on the device.

You can add a text description to every object so you can make notes of the real world settings of your shoot, this is how SLR started as a fancy 3D drawing pad. But even if you just want understand the basics SLR can help.

SLR gives you a real-time view of the lights you place down with number of models to light with full colour and shadow maps. The models include a female with 30 odd poses, a hi resolution male with poses and various models such as an over sized head for seeing the affects of shadows.

Watch the new SLR videos and guide over at under the Apps tab.

Customer Reviews

Useful results, very poor project saving

This application is great for designing lighting rigs for a studio photographer or for one learning about lighting. I have learned a great deal, certainly much easier than messing around with equipment, especially if you don't have access to much equipment.

The interface, once you get the hang of it, is fairly easy. It would be nice if you could get it to both display and set coordinates numerically, I.e say a prime light is 1.5 meters or feet from model, 6 feet or meters off the ground. And conversely, have it spit out the distances and heights so you could build the rig in real life. And maybe produce an inventory or shopping list for needed components ( one barn door on 7 foot stand, one hair light on a 4 foot stand. Even better with measurements!)

I would give it five stars if the following is addressed:

this app is not good if you want to save a work in progress and edit it later. It took me a while to figure out that every save was creating a new "rig" (with duplicate name). This results in a long list of identically named "rigs," and no was way to easily delete old versions. I became rapidly confused. And remain so. In addition, the display of the library of rigs is inexplicably slow, even with the one or two rigs I was working on.

good concept

Its a good concept but not well executed. Pretty clunky interface. Movement controls are difficult to navigate with precision. I think a two plane system would be much easier to navigate (ex...overhead view and horizontal perspective with height slider and zoom). Some control over light intensity sure would be nice too. Classic lighting set ups like clam shell give you a blown out camera view. Lots of features could make this more useful like; focal length, aperture, lSO, f-stop scale for light rigs. Rendering is pretty poor too even with detail turned up on Ipad4. There are pc and mac programs that do what this app tries to do much better, for very reasonable prices, I think I'll be investing in one of those.

Very difficult

It's nice that it's 3D but it hard to navigate, back to front view button will be great (reset view)...
We only need a zoom an move to sides option why do I need to see a view from top corner of the room?!!
If people saying this app is good then u are far from being a professional, u would check set.a.light desktop software...
