I stumbled across this: AFTER EFFECTS - HDR Effect (free presets!) - YouTube
At 3 minutes I see plug-ins called tonemapping (basic) and (advanced):
Any one got a clue what these are? Since this looks like an official Adobe YouTube site (?) I'm wondering if this is a plug-in that's in beta. I'm still on CS6, so maybe this is a part of CC I'm unaware of?
Tempted to upgrade but I hear there's a new CS around the corner that will have extensive HDR capabilities, so I'll wait for that..
That's nothing official Adobe. There were tone-mapping plug-ins once available from Stefan Minning, but they never made it beyond Alpha. Otherwise this could be anything from custom presets to some plug-ins I'm not aware of.
Thanks Mylenium. I Know Stefan's plug-in - it's called Atlas. Still available on his site. Rather slow and difficult to control. I thought I knew all the tonemapping plugs out there.
BTW if any one knows of any obscure plugs i may not have heard of...
