Re: [PanoToolsNG] Dynamic relighting
- yeah, it's really neat. I just did a test series on ghost reduction, and Oloneo came out surprisingly close to Photoshop CS5. I tried the relighting, and it's stunning at first, but sort of non-tolreable that it only accepts single exposures. This should really be happening with HDRs - even their example source images are clipped on the actual light source. Turns out, you can also rebuild this sort of effect in Photoshop by isolating individual light contributions with Difference and Exclusion blending modes.
Oh, and yes, I would love to real blended pano layers in krpano. I'm sure Aldo could rebuild an ADR plugin for us then, his Auto-Levels is are a great start.

Load all these into Oloneo and it works out the color and location of the light sources and you can tweak the lights individually (color and intensity) in the composite. I tried with a building interior with a computer lighting panel for diffent "moods" and it was remarkable sometimes how you had discreet controls of the lights in the software.

Maybe the panorama viewer authors might be able to incorporate this idea I thought. eg. if you had 3 panoramas of the same scene and the lighting animates realistically from one type to another, so you feel individual lights are turning on or off, or changing color or you have controls in the pano to do it.
