Distortion Correction limits RawTherapee

Even at maximum fisheye correction (-0.500 of something not defined in application or site), it cannot correct as much as other tools out there. Is there a way to correct beyond this seemingly arbitrary number to something greater, like -.75? Should I be submitting this as a bug (here?) if there is not? Thanks!

Ubuntu 20.04’s default version of RT (5.8)

You can use an LCP or lensfun profile to correct the distortion.

Thanks, but that looks like a lot of work, since I’m constantly trying out new (well, old adapted, really) lenses. I’m more looking for a rawtherapee adjustable control, not submitting a building shot to LCP for whichever lens i’m currently working with and getting a result later (they state it takes this amount of time: “please give us time for this”).

Yes, its a lot of work for everyone: the people who build RT, the people who build lensfun, and the people here to answer your questions :wink:

Touché ! :slight_smile: I understand that it’s more more work, but sometimes I don’t even remember which lens was on which adapter…

I may look at my raw photos quite some time after shooting them (I’m not a pro, and documenting everything and using the best lenses and going over my photos immediately). I often wonder if I had my EF adapter with my friend’s sigma 8mm f3.5, or if I was shooting with my cheap 7.5mm f2.8 directly attached to my OM-D… having an entry in the LCP would be great for lenses that I’m often using, but I would get more use out of a way to adjust in RawTherapee. I was hoping someone would say “oh, go into some directory and edit some file so that it says -1 to +1 instead of -0.5 to + 0.5.”

Not so far as I’m aware, but @heckflosse can say for sure.

We can change that to [-1.0;1.0], but I would like to get a raw-file to test with.

I, too support this change, for rough approximate de-fishing. Maybe a tangent function modified slider response, or something more sophisticated?

@heckflosse, I am assuming you would like me to take a photo of a building (like LCP asks for) with a very wide angle lens, and then post the *.raw file here?

A raw file where the current [-0.5;0.5] range is not sufficient would be enough to test.

@heckflosse, here’s a 7.5mm 7artisans fisheye on MFT.P7312604.ORF (14.5 MB)
