Default How to save a Photomatix radiance file for tonemapping with another app

1. Load you images into Photomatix

Make sure that the "Save 32-bt" box is checked. Click OK.

2. Photomatix will stop here:

Click Align and Deghost.

3. Photomatix will stop here

Choose your deghosting method and click OK when done.

4. Photomatix will stop when it has made that Radiance file

At this point go to File > Save As and save your .hdr file. You can close Photomatix now if you want.

5. Open your tonemapping app. Drag and drop your 32-bit .hdr file into it and process. N.B. The Photomatix radiance file is strongly over-saturated so you have to correct this during processing.

Many thanks. I believe in lots of illustration and the minimum of words.

Hi, As I find Photomatix the better option for ghost and movment reduction I nearly always go this route to SNS-HDR as IMO this gives a very natural end result very fast.
