Help test the new HDRMerge development build for macOS

There were some 60 commits since HDRMerge v0.5.0 was released three years ago. We intend to make a new release soon, but first we need your help to test that the builds run fine on all supported systems.

@HIRAM made a new build for macOS, you can find it and leave comments either here in the forum or there in GitHub:

Without entering minutia, just a superficial assemblage of some handheld hdr trios of images (bless you), all went smoothly. Images were saved in all bit depths, also png mask.

Thanks for the merge boost =)

macos 10.13.3

Testing the new qt5 version of HDRMerge…

HDRMerge .dng from 3 exp. bracket post-processed in RawTherapee.

The only problem I’ve noted happening on both my 10.12 and 10.11 macs is the second dialog box which appears after the initial file choosing box is starting out real tiny.

It does expand into this normal-sized box once you try to expand it out from the lower right corner.

ˆ-- for the latest HDRMerge test build.

HIRAM and other developing. Tested against the older verion and all white point issues causing crazy pinks are now gone with canon CR2 files. This version rocks and is very useful. I use it through command line and seems to work fine as well. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi,

I’ve tested it on a macos with Fuji compressed RAF’s files. It works fine most of the time, but in some cases there are some pinks in the sky.

Hope it helps…

BR,
Daniel

@Daniel_Catalina Can you provide a series which results in pinkish highlights?

@heckflosse This reminds me the issue I opened about pink HL for HDR image when Exposure / Clip highlights is off.

Sure. Where can I upload the files?
The 3 RAF’s have almost 80Mb together.

please upload to https://filebin.net/ and post the link here

There you go: https://filebin.net/xst5j46d4j5ba0zr

I just opened the files in HDRMerge, did not touch any option and saved the result as dng.

Merged with latest hdrmerge, opened in rt looks so:

I used this one. Is there a more latest one?

I used the one I built from current master branch (though on Manjaro, not on Mac). Should be the same as your build. Maybe @HIRAM knows more?

Could also be an issue with RawTherapee, as @Hombre mentioned above.

Same thing when I open the DNG in darktable:

and in Affinity Photo:

I doubt that is a macos thing, but who knows… Most likely the build I used differs from the one you used :slight_smile:

Can you start hdrmerge from terminal using hdrmerge -vv (two v, not one w), merge the files and post the terminal output?

hdrmerge -vv

Sorry… I did not see the ‘merge files’ part :slight_smile:

Strange… Here’s my output

Yes, it looks similar … I just did not see the first time I am supposed to also merge the files…

The output with the merged files is:
