    Some imagefilters are HDR sensitive, like HDR_Exposer, LWVDR, or any colour processing filters.

    Vignetting should be applied as the last filter, a separating plugin using values retrieved from the Camera Lens, eitherwise Vignetting becomes a parameter for invalid calculations.

    Of course, I am only guessing, havent tried the tool in practice or saw it in real application.
    Vignetting occurs within the lens system, so by the time the light reaches the film it has already been affected. Image filters should then work on top of this, so realistically speaking, the order of what's happening is correct. In the final version I'm sure you'll be able to turn vignetting off if you want though.

    James, thanks for the reply.
    I know what you mean, that vignetting is a lens effect.

    The problem begins when someone wants to use Sasquatch which is a PixelFilter. Sasquatch composition at the frame borders wont have vignetting.

    Since Pixel/Image Filters are effects that are related to the camera, any Camera plugin developer should consider these relations.

    Its painful to have two cool tools that cannot coexist and often there arent any workarounds.

    Developers understand me better, or my communication with them had been always very constructive.

    Not really studied this question,
    but there are LWCamera Evaluation Functions in SDK which
    (I guess) may be, can be called from Pixel Filter Handler,
    a Camera evaluator with same functions than Camera handler.

    Seems that nobody saw this thread.
    As I saw the development, the RealLens Camera destructs all Pixel Filters and all Image Filters.

    Is there anybody at Newtek that has knowledge and plans ?

    James, your Tilt-shift camera cannot be saved into a scene. If i sacve a scene with it, when i reload it the plugin is missed and it asks for it. Is there any solution for this ?

    thanks,
    Paolo

    Yes I'd like to see that solved too... It has happened to me to forget to turn back to tilt-shift camera after a scene load and frames went bad...

    fortunately we have also a jap plugin, "perspective control camera", which is even more capable of Tilt-shift and doesnt give these problems, though it's less immediate to use.

    So those other cameras have been updated? Haven't been paying attention...

  11. #41
    yes so it seems. the one i mentioned above works perfectly and it can be saved with scene.

    Hi Paolo, yes we're working on that. I'll have it fixed soon.

    This one should save and load just fine. Clear the old plugin and load this one.
