What's new in Xenon Drop 1?

This new HDR Light Studio version includes new features for mixer, Octane Render Standalone and 3ds Max / V-Ray 5 User. This release also lays the foundation for improving the performance of all of our connections with the development of a new faster API.

New Blender connection

We are proud to bring out our new Blender Connection. This brand new connection is the big new feature in our Xenon Drop 1 version. This Blender add-on is a free addition for existing indie, pro and automotive customers with active subscriptions or maintenance work.


We have developed a new TCP / IP-based API (Application Programming Interface) for HDR Light Studio. This new API is significantly faster and gives the 3D artist a far more responsive lighting experience.

The first connections to use the new API are the new Blender connection and the standalone Octane Render connection. We want to port other connections to use the new API in future connection updates if necessary.

Octane standalone connection

This connection has been updated to use the new TCP / IP based API in HDR Light Studio.

3ds Max connection

Added support for V-Ray 5.
Added a fix to handle username paths with non-ASCII characters.
