Radiance ximage viewer

Hello,

Does anyone know where I can find the Radiance ximage viewer?

I would like to use the simple "t" command to pick a luminance value in a HDR image.

I used to have it but cannot locate it anymore and do not feel like a full program reinstallation....

Or can you suggest another way (apart from sending my image to pvalue)

Thx

Question about header information of HDRI

Hi,

 

I'm writing you concerning my current project.

I'm working for TechnoTeam company. Manyfacturer of imaging luminance measuring devices (camera photometer).

Our aim is to export our own image file format (pixel-wise HDR float values) into the Radiance rgbe file format.

The aim is to give radiance users access to the measured luminance information combined with our information about lens configuration (geometrical data).

This may of interest for the "glare" community when analyzing the glare using radiance tools.


Anyway, writing the rgbe information is no problem.

 

But what about the header structure of the radiance HDRI format?

I'm a little confused about it and can't find a documentation structure how it is organized?

Unfortunately I'm no radiance user for carrying out own radiance projects to study it?

 

With my best regards

HDRI Digest, Vol 70, Issue 5


I have one more question regarding the calibration:

I am doing daylight research in an office area with alternative 
shadings (artificial lighting is off during the study).
Is using the  Illuminance calibration with the help of handhold 
illuminance meter a correct way of calibrating the  HDR photos In my 
case?

V. Kumaragurubaran and M. Inanici have proposed this method for special 
cases such as sun and sky capture.

Dear Lars:Thank you for your proposed alternatives. Webhdr is a great, 
user friendly tool and I was not aware of that.

Thanks Greg. I've tried to make it short.

Dear Lars:

Thank you for your proposed alternatives. Webhdr is a great, user 
friendly tool and I was not aware of that.
I have one more question regarding the calibration.

V. Kumaragurubaran and M. Inanici have proposed two methods for 
calibration. one is based on measuring the absolute luminance of the 
graycard and the other one is based one measuring the illuminance at the 
camera level in the scene that they suggest it for special cases such as 
sun and sky capture.

I am doing daylight research in an office area with alternative 
shadings (artificial lighting is off during the study).
Is using the  Illuminance calibration that utilizes captured 
illuminance of the camera level with the handhold illuminance meter 
(proposed in hdrscope) a correct way of calibrating the  HDR photos In 
my case?

Fatemeh

Thank you guys for your reply:

I think I will go for Greg solution, including a gray card or something 
whose luminance that I captured the image and use this to correct the 
output using a scale factor.
I wish there was a Photosphere for windows also.

HDR for Glare Analysis

Hi there:
I have a question that concerns HDR photo and Glare analysis.

Can I use Adobe Photoshop CC (which has the Camera Raw plugin) to 
prepare my HDR images?
after that calibrate it with the use of HDRSCOPE that is proposed by 
Mehlika Inanici. Instead of Photosphere?

Vignetting Correction Using a ULS

Dear List,

I am looking to find a method for correcting vignetting occurring in HDR images using radiance as part of an undergraduate research study. I am using a Uniform Luminance Sphere to create a uniformly lit background in order to create a reference image.

I have used radiance to create the HDR images, and I am wondering if there is a way to take the HDR image and divide each pixel intensity by that of its optical center. This would create an image/mask of fractional pixel values that can be divided into another image to correct for the cameras specific vignetting.

Other suggestions would be greatly appreciated as well.

Thanks,
Josh

Re: Does evalglare use climate data for glare analysis?

Hi Nithya,

Evalglare processes the image. You may create annual hourly renderings with climate data, and then use Evalglare to analyze them.
