What is HDR?
High-dynamic-range imaging (HDRI) is a high dynamic range (HDR) technique used in imaging and photography to reproduce a greater dynamic range of luminosity than is possible with standard digital imaging or photographic techniques. The aim is to present a similar range of luminance to that experienced through the human visual system. The human eye, through adaptation of the iris and other methods, adjusts constantly to adapt to a broad range of luminance present in the environment. The brain continuously interprets this information so that a viewer can see in a wide range of light conditions.
or just watch this…
The current option’s to reproduce HDR colors in non-HDR env. are:
- Hable’s Tone Mapping (passed through pipe to mpv)
- reinhard Tonemapping Technique (MPV’s Default)
- Top sekret proprietary methods.(not a option :/)
I will show you example’s how above 3 methods try to produce HDR colors to SDR.(Aka. tonemapping)
madVR is a high quality DirectShow video renderer.
Designed as a no-compromise approach, madVR tries to achieve the best possible video playback quality.
Hable’s Tone Mapping
Hable’s tone mapping simply put is a algorithm.while many people conside this as very premature.the results are good.
Environment : VS pipe to MPV.
