Episode 084: The 3 Letter Acronym Show (RePost)

This is a repost of Episode 84 – there seem to be some feed problems. there is no need for download if you have seen 84 already.

84This week I start with a short introduction into autostereoscopic images, see two posts below. Then I cover the GEGL operation “c2g”, which converts acouloured image into a monochrome image with a lot of noise or other other effects. It’s a “try out” thing – up to now I have not found documentation. Perhaps one has to look into the source. Be warned – some parameters can kill the program.

Then Joseph tells us. how easy it is to make “HDR” images with QTPFSGUI. It’s not as complicated as I feared. I’ll try it soon myself. The website Joseph pointed me to is here.

  1. Although I have not got any images of the same scene taken at different exposures I have selected from, amongst my images, a landscape and simulated different exposures. I have then combined these to practice with Qtpfsgui with most interesting results. Just an idea but worth trying.

Anything to add from your side of the computer?
