You can now use new features for “Local adjustments”
Either you use a build from branch “newlocallab”, or you compile this branch, or you participate in the PULL REQUEST that I created (between newlocallab and dev)
The advances are of 2 types, the GUI and significant improvements to “local wavelet”
For the GUI
@Pandagrapher has done a remarkable job, I will give him room to detail the improvements.
Mainly you have the possibility for each RT-spot, to choose the modules of your choice, for example “Color and light” and “Local contrast”
For this to work properly, you need to “clear” the cache.
Admittedly this introduces a loss of compatibility with the old pp3, for those who used “newlocallab”, but it is difficult to do otherwise.
- For each spot, users can now choose which local tool he wants to add or remove;
- pp3 files are now slimmed down: for each spot, only associated local tool parameters are saved;
- For copy/paste or save/load, using Partial Dialog, users can now select spots they want to keep;
- Optimisation: When switching between spot, picture is no longer updated if not necessary;
- Locallab is not anymore possible in batch mode (quite useless to maintain this code for local adjustments…);
The work on “wavtm” was developed with the active participation of @XavAL , and completely transforms the use of wavelet by systematically taking into account a modeling of the decomposed data (mean, sigma, max …) and one or two parameters “damper” and “offset”
“Local Wavelet” has some additional features, such as taking into account ‘deltaE’ transitions and scope, plus the possibility of a wavelet tone-mapping.
Do not run away from “wavelet” (Wavelet levels of main, or Wavelet local pyramid) because it seems complicated, try, try, and you will adopt it.
- Clarity and sharp mask
- edge sharpness
- blur levels
- tone mapping
- graduated filter local contrast
- contrast by levels
- levels local contrast
- residual image
You can also in combination with the transition parameters (transition value, weakeneing transition …) act on the sensor faults.
And of courxe, if need, you can use “mask”
