High Dynamic Range tutorial:What is the maximum file size that I can work with?

By Gavin  Jun, 07, 2011   Posted in FAQ on Photomatix
What is the maximum file size that I can work with? How to do HDR:The file size to consider for Photomatix is the size expressed in number of pixels, i.e. width X height. Since Photomatix has to decompress the images for processing, the compression factor of the input images does not make any difference in the ability to process large files. The maximum file size (in number of pixels) that you can process with Photomatix depends on the...

HDR FAQ:I am getting noisy tone mapping results. Is there a way to avoid this?

By Gavin  Jun, 06, 2011   Posted in HDR Tutorial
HDR FAQ:I am getting noisy tone mapping results. Is there a way to avoid this? HDRI Tutorial:The Tone Mapping method “Details Enhancer” enhances local details a lot. If the local details of your HDR image are noisy (you can easily see that in the HDR viewer), then the noise will be enhanced as well, unfortunately. If you have generated the HDR image directly from RAW files, then the noise may be avoided by converting your RAW files...

HDR photography photo workshop:Exposure Fusion or HDR Tone Mapping?

By Gavin  Jun, 06, 2011   Posted in HDR Tutorial
HDR photography photo workshop:What is the best workflow: Exposure Fusion or HDR Tone Mapping? This depends on the dynamic range of the scene, the characteristics of the differently exposed images and the effect you want to achieve. Our recommendation is to systematically try both, using Batch Processing from the Automate menu. What we usually do for any set of image, is to first run the batch with the three following methods: · Tone Mapping...

How to do hdr photography:How did you take the Grand Canal picture on your example page while the boats were moving?

By Gavin  Jun, 06, 2011   Posted in HDR Tutorial
how to make hdr photos:Taking differently exposed shots for HDR only works well with stills. For a scene with motion, the resulting image will show “ghosting” artifacts. Most cameras have an automatic bracketing exposure function which lets them take three or more shots successively while automatically changing the exposure. This is still not fast enough in most cases of moving scenes, but in the case of the Grand Canal photo shown...

photomatix pro 4.0 serial, How can I get good HDR results when shooting a room with a bright view in the window?

By Gavin  Jun, 05, 2011   Posted in FAQ on Photomatix
How can I get good results when shooting a room with a bright view in the window? photomatix pro 4.0 serial:The dynamic range of the inside of a room with a view outside the window on a sunny day is particularly high, much higher than the dynamic range of a typical outdoor scene. The key to getting a good result with such scenes is to take enough exposures to properly cover the dynamic range. In most cases, you will need at least five exposures...

HDR Software Photomatix:Do I need to process bracketed RAW files to TIFF format first?

By Gavin  Jun, 04, 2011   Posted in FAQ on Photomatix
HDR Photography How To:The answer depends on your needs and preferences. If the quality of raw demosaicing/debayering or proper white balance adjustments are important to you, it is better to first process your bracketed RAW files in your favorite RAW converter, and then combine the converted TIFF or JPEG files in Photomatix. Additionally, Photomatix transfers less metadata when the source files are RAWs than when they are TIFFs or JPEGs. When...

I have a RAW file. Can I make different exposures with it to use in Photomaitx pro?

By Gavin  Jun, 03, 2011   Posted in FAQ on Photomatix
Yes, you can still use Photomatix when you have shot only one exposure in RAW mode. The big advantage, of course, is that you just need one image, so there is no need to use a tripod or to remember to auto-bracket, and it will also work if the subject is moving. However, the range of “workable” exposures you can get from a RAW file is limited. If you are shooting a high contrast scene, you are unlikely to match the results you would...

Taking HDR scenes,Auto Exposure Bracketing settings by camera model

By Gavin  Jun, 03, 2011   Posted in FAQ on Photomatix
Many digital cameras include an Auto Exposure Bracketing (AEB) option. When AEB is selected, the camera automatically takes three or more shots with a different exposure for each frame. Auto Exposure Bracketing is a very useful option for taking HDR scenes. However, AEB was not really intended for HDR shots initially, but rather for ensuring that at least one of the shots will be as close to perfectly exposed as possible. This is...

What camera do I need to get good results with Photomatix pro?

By Gavin  Jun, 02, 2011   Posted in FAQ on Photomatix
What camera do I need to get good results with your software? Photomatix works with differently exposed photos. To get good results, it is important that each one of the source photos are taken with a sufficiently different exposure in order to properly cover the dynamic range of the scene. Taking three photos separated by two EVs (i.e. two full-stops), or five photos separated by one EV, will be sufficient for most outdoors scenes. Many digital...

Does Photomatix support RAWs from the Canon S95 and Nikon D3100?

By Gavin  Jun, 02, 2011   Posted in FAQ on Photomatix
Does Photomatix support RAWs from the Canon S95 and Nikon D3100? The current versions of Photomatix Pro and Photomatix Light do not yet support RAWs from the Canon S95 and Nikon D3100. Support for the RAW files of these camera models will be added in a future version of the software. In the meantime, please convert your RAW files to TIFF or JPEG in a RAW converter that supports them (for instance DPP in the case of a Canon camera), and then...

Tone mapping an HDR panorama with the Details Enhancer method

By Gavin  Jun, 01, 2011   Posted in FAQ on Photomatix
My tone mapped panorama shows a straight vertical seam line. Is there a way to get rid of it? Yes. To get rid of the seam when tone mapping an HDR panorama with the Details Enhancer method, you will have to check the option “360º image” before running the Tone Mapping. Please note that checking this option increases the memory requirement for processing the image quite a lot. If you are tone mapping with the Tone Compressor method,...

2011 Photomatix tutorial hdr – What is the ideal exposure range and exposure spacing?

By Gavin  Jun, 01, 2011   Posted in FAQ on Photomatix
What is the ideal exposure range and exposure spacing? The ideal exposure range is the one that covers the dynamic range of the scene you are shooting. So, the exposure range depends on the scene. Photomatix Pro Tutorial:For many outdoors scenes, 3 exposures spaced one or two EVs apart may be sufficient. However, for an interior with an outside view on a sunny day, for instance, the dynamic range can be quite high. An E.V. (Exposure Value) is...
