Oloneo HDRengine belooft eenvoudige HDR bewerking

Door -

Het Franse bedrijf Oloneo, bekend van het RAW/HDR-pakket PhotoEngine 1.0, heeft vandaag een nieuwe softwaretitel op de markt gebracht. Oloneo HDRengine speciaal bedoeld voor het produceren van HDR foto’s en is volgens eigenzeggen het meest geavanceerde en eenvoudiste pakket van dit moment. Het kan zowel overweg met een enkele foto als meerdere opnamen met verschillende belichtingen (via bracketing; normaal, onderbelicht, overbelicht). HDRengine belooft een vereenvoudiging van het proces waarbij HDR foto’s gemaakt en bewerkt worden. Op die manier kunnen details in overbelichte en onderbelichte gebieden toch zichtbaar gemaakt worden in één enkele foto. Het programma biedt oneindige bewerkingsmogelijkheden, van de meest realistische look tot de meest creatieve (of extreme) tone mapping-stijl. De software is gebaseerd op het eerder genoemde PhotoEngine. HDRengine richt zich meer op beginners die zonder allerlei complexe stappen snel resultaat willen boeken.

HDRengine biedt een aantal geautomatiseerde tools waarmee je vlot bewerkingen kunt uitvoeren, zoals Auto Tone Mapper. Ook biedt het een reeks presets en stijlen die als preview realtime op je foto worden toegepast. Vooral voor beginners, die niet aan allerlei schuifjes willen zitten, is dat handig. Het omzetten naar een tonemapped HDR is vervolgens zo gepiept. Althans, Oloneo stelt dat haar HDR engine de snelste is van dit moment, waardoor zowel de previews als de volledige omzetting weinig tijd kosten. 

Hoewel de software gericht is op beginners en amateurs bevat HDRengine dezelfde technologie als Oloneo PhotoEngine. Naast de standaard opties biedt de software ook mogelijkheden om halo’s en ghosting weg te werken. Het pakket kan overweg met 380 verschillende RAW-formaten en behoudt de EXIF-waarden. 

Prijs en beschikbaarheid

HDRengine 1.0 (32- of 64-bit) is vanaf vandaag beschikbaar voor een introductieprijs van € 59 via de webwinkel van Oloneo. Er is ook een gratis 30 dagen-versie beschikbaar die je daar kunt downloaden. Er zit een Engelse (of Franse) handleiding bij.
