Ever since I integrated librtprocess into Filmulator as a replacement for libraw’s demosaicing, Filmulator has been without highlight recovery.
But no more!
Now, I’ve integrated RawTherapee’s excellent highlight inpaint algorithm into librtprocess, so Filmulator (and other raw photo processing software) can make use of it.
The highlight recovery slider still goes from 0-9, but currently anything 2 or above has highlight recovery enabled, and 0 and 1 are disabled. (Eventually this will change.)
Please leave any feedback you have on speed, because I want to decide whether this is suitable for enabling by default. It takes about the same amount of time as Amaze demosaicing, but for importing and the fast preview it is performed on a very small image so the speed impact should be generally small.
Additionally, I’ll figure out how to properly implement highlight clipping in the case that you don’t want the overhead of highlight reconstruction, and then I’ll release a new version of Filmulator.
Oh and also: AppImage available here.
