The issue is exactly that I don’t have possibility to shoot RAW, The sample I shared is just a single frame from a .MOV video file saved as a JPEG.
The Theta-V EXR file was aquired with AUTHYDRA plugin (There’s a new version of it that I didn’t check yet though). I found it producing better results compared to manual bracketing.
It does some denoising and other OpenCV tricks under the hood, so I’m not sure that I can replicate the same result by just merging the brackets inside photoshop for instance.
Anyway, I uploaded the brackets captured by the plugin to the same folder
Regarding the matching itself. I was hoping that it would be possible to match the plate to HDRI via mmColorTarget plugin inside Nuke. But I don’t get the workflow.
Should I ‘neutralize’/‘balance’/‘tech grade’ both - Plate and HDRI before I use the mmColorTarget? For example by doing a ColorLookup of a grey patch RGB values picking a desaturated grey patch as a target
What IDT should I use for the jpg plate I have? (I assume Utility-sRGB-Texture) - but it mixes up the colors.
What IDT should I use for the HDRI (I assume Utility-sRGB-Linear)
I’m really confused
