Re: Export high resolution depth map

Yup - certainly an interesting image, but I'm intrigued as to what the tones signify.

Re: Colorcast on final image post render

The color cast does not appear in the beta 16 of 7.0.0 - it did in some images compiled in beta8 - but I was then running an earlier version of DNG converter

Re: Stacking HDR series

I don't think there is a way in Helicon to do this. I've just done a series like this and took advice from the Helicon Team.
It was the Helicon stacks first.
Then merge them in HDR.
Took some time to achieve --- but worth it

Re: What is the best order for post-processing images?

Looks like I'm running DNG converter 10.3.0.933 - so will upgrade and report back.
I'm running Helicon Focus 7.0.0.0

Yup - works amazing - now can move from my test subject to the main project.

Thanks

When is v7 to be available?

Re: What is the best order for post-processing images?

Ok so I tried the two possible ways. Both turned out to be unsuccessful. 1. HDR in Lightroom produced DNG files which gave "Load image error: unsupported format" when I tried to export them to Helicon Focus Pro 2. 12 images C stacks in Helicon Focus when returned to Lightroom as DNG could not be rea...

Re: Light Variation During Stacking

That now explains why HF said I had a 17% variance in the exposure ---- the LED source!

"Damaged" image

I export my images for stacking from Lightroom as DNGs to Helicon Focus. Sometimes when the stacked imaged is returned to Lightroom it is flagged up as "damaged". Sometimes reprocessing the image stack removes that error - sometimes not. Sometimes it's an "A" or a "B" or a "C" stack. Sometimes it's ...

What is the best order for post-processing images?

I've been using Helicon Focus for just over a year. I want to tackle a more difficult image. It will have a very wide Dynamic range. Is it best to 1) in Lightroom, process all each of the bracketed exposure triplets for each "slice of the subject" to give a single image; then take these single image...

Re: about Stackshot

Hi I use a Sony Alpha A77 and a Sony Alpha A350 on a Stackshot rig. The guys at Cognysis are very helpful and will advise on the connector. There are two different Sony connectors which connect camera to the Stackshot control unit via the remote socket which sits under a protective cover. The great ...
