Re: [PanoToolsNG] Re: HDR-Workflow: Vienna Metro Praterstern revisit
- I already have created an ADR panorama with one of the shots of the 2005 visit (Thanks Jeffrey for using the right wording to remember me).
ADR with 3 panoramic images, the middle exposure is also the "exposure map" (be careful, this one needs a lot of VRAM):
Same principle but 2 shots and the obligatory invisible exposure map:
Visitors of the 2005 Panotools Meeting may remember ;-)
Helmut Dersch's HDR-PTViewer is the only "native" (HDR-JPEG) HDR-Viewer, but his unfortunately never updated encoding algorithm produces a very "blocky" viewing experience...
