Here's my new studiosetup including a macrotent for jewelryshots and other small stuff, it's currently a work in progress and these are some of my testrenders.

Btw, this entire studiosetup will be on sale when it's finished.

Nice! I had the same idea at some point. Though I really don't see a practical point, unless it really provides some practical benefits, except from you have a "real" studio and work as a photographer. It's more for fun I think.

Thats an interesting idea, as right now I'm more biased to a photographic render approach. If you finally make a dvd I'll buying it (if for maya too and not too expensive).

I have a question, do you really get the light go past through the umbrella, or it is just for reflections? (placing light in front)

I completly forgot i posted in this thread until i noticed someone just posted here today. I'm sorry!

mister3d: the benefits of using a correctly built setup like this one is that you have the actual studioprop to work with as then you get a much better sense of scale and realism as you're planning your "shot". Because with these props you have to position them and rotate them in place just like you in a real studio would move and rotate a lightingprop for your shot. So this setup will definately give you that real feel instead of using just simple imageplanes or standard emitters in your 3d application. This is like the real stuff!
Also another thing they help improve is in reflective surfaces on objects, you will get proper reflections from these props as you would in a real studio when you photograph anything reflective there, the diffusers and umbrellas all throw a typical looking reflection in a surface. This setup will help you with that too. And much more!

Dogway: Thanks these studioprops will be released but not on an actual dvd, they will be downloadable content. And they will come at a nice fair price, don't worry. They won't be as expensive as it's real life items are hehe. About light passing through the thin cloth surfaces, that really depends on the renderengine you use. If it has a sss material which can be applied to singlepoly thin meshes or not. If it has that then yes light can pass through and you will get correct soft light. I have tested this in Modo and it works very well there. More info about when the official release of these props will be announced soon..

ivanjames: Your artworks are overburned in some places, also modeling is very simple but it is not a place to tlak about that

What renderer do you use?

Have you also tried to make a light through a whiteboard? Lets say you use a light source behind a plane, and the plane is a sort of white board that allows some sort of light through.
I tried it out and it works actually pretty good, of course you can do this with out it. But still pretty cool
