Using photographer addon

Post by Egert_Kanep » Mon Sep 23, 2019 9:02 am

Hey!

If I want to use photographer addon for exposure control, should I disable LuxCore's tonemapping or leave it at linear gain 1?

See this post:

– Photographer doesn’t use LuxCore ImagePipeline Tonemapper and relies on Blender’s exposure the same way it works with Cycles, for ease of use. It will force LuxCore Tonemapper to do nothing by using its default exposure settings. Do not be alarmed if the LuxCore Tonemapper doesn’t reflect Photographer Exposure settings.

To make it easier to switch between Cycles and LuxRender, it needs to be ON with default settings.
It's a bit counter intuitive but if I turn it off, the user would have to make sure to reapply the camera settings if he switches between the two engines.
