Tone Mapping Madness?

Recommended Posts

So, I have a panorama I'm working on comprised of HDR-merged components. I freely admit that I hack some of this stuff as I'm learning when it comes to which adjustments lead to what results, as long as I like the visual endpoint. That being said, this tone mapping interim result (attached) was a bit unexpected. The screenshot was with 1.7.0.116 (beta) but the reason I was there was because I saw the issue in production 1.6.11 and wanted to confirm before submitting the question (so this is not a beta-specific issue). I've also attached a 1.6.11 screenshot pre-entry into the Tone Mapping persona for comparison.

Is this a bug? Is it broken-as-expected? Is this somehow user error?

I can privately submit the project and/or the exrs if needed.

Thanks!

Hi @Brad Brighton,

I would say it's not expected. Can you please upload the resources here? https://www.dropbox.com/request/mpEAprPZAhZLzCvrGQMF

Thanks,

Gabe. 

I'll be dropping rather large source materials shortly. As I'm working out exactly which sources to send, I'm suspecting that the panorama render result may be playing an unexpected role -- I'm seeing what appear to be some unfriendly changes to the sources once the merge is complete, at least as compared to inspecting the individual EXRs. The weirdness may not be visually apparent before attempting to tone map...

The pano is comprised of a single "aces" EXR, a "Harrahs" EXR, and a "Circus" EXR. The variants of Aces (and I have several more available, in case they are needed) were an attempt to get rid of the resultant cast in the merged panorama that doesn't seem to appear (or at least is not prevalent) in the individual EXRs.

The lens flare is known and not knowingly part of this issue.

System:

MacBook Pro 2018 i9/32G/Vega20

Mojave 10.14.4

Original images: Canon 5D Mark III Raw (CR2)

If there's anything else you need, just shout!
