What about ArionFX, the ultimate HDR processing filters for Photoshop? We downloaded and gave a try to this amazing plugin for Adobe Photoshop CC and we really enjoyed the standalone interface (like Camera RAW).
It feels strange nobody before thought “why we don’t develop a post production plugin specifically designed for 3D Artists?”. In Random Control’s page we can find a clear product description: “Whether you are a photographer or a CGI artist seeking for advanced HDR tonemapping (in linear workflow without washing out the image, and respecting its full dynamic range), firefly removal, glare, bloom, … ArionFX is a must in your toolchain”.
From the interactive list of features, the more relevant for us were:
- Real-world camera response operators
- Histogram stretching and clipping controls
- Color saturation and white-balance correction
- Tonemapping operators
- HDR Despeckler
- HDR lens effects
- Color fringe
