I was fortunate enough to be involved in the Beta testing of HDR Light Studio for Lightwave. This is a terrific integration into Lightwave's Layout, a really seamless melding into the UI and workflow.
Today is the official release date so it available right now. It really is a fresh approach to lighting things in a 3D environment, giving you the ability to create HDR image maps live, you can even re-work other image based light maps to tailor them towards a specific lighting design.
If lighting is something you really want to control, or you want art directed reflections on your subject for a specific look, you'd want to invest in this almost magic plugin. I created a couple of tutorials to demonstrate how it works.
