Rendering Improvement


#1

I want to share a script that improve the rendering quality especialy in domains with PBR materials like one of my domains: impromedia .
You first must download this qml file:

http://transmissiongate.com/advrender.qml

Take care, when you download this file, Windows will add sometimes the .txt extension, so you will need to rename back the downloaded file as advrender.qml

Copy this file to

C:\Program Files\High Fidelity\scripts\developer\utilities\render\advrender.qml

Launch this tablet app script in Running Scripts/FROM URL:

https://transmissiongate.com/hifi/render.js

You will have a tablet app button called Render
Click on it:
Capture

Recomended settings (on my domain):

Tone Mapping Exposure: -0.13
Tone Mapping Curve drop-down, select: Filmic
Enable the check box for Bloom Effect 
and in the Bloom effect sliders chose something like:
Intensity: 1.00
Size: 0.81
Threshold: 0.00

I hope that in the near future will be able to access this settings by default (in the zone entity settings).

Enjoy!

Hi @GeorgeDeac. I’ve installed it, nice work! Thank you

Just a note, Bloom is buggy in the current interface with AMD graphics cards and on some Macs but has been fixed in the next release.

This is beautiful! I just saw some snaps taken in Help with this add-on. I would love to try it, but replacing qml files would make debugging difficult. Looking forward to a version where no files have to be replaced so that it can be enabled and disabled on the fly!

Also a note that it looks like it forgets your settings when you close and reopen the Render menu.

Looks good. I think you might have run into the same problem I did when calling qml files from the web. I’m going to check my browser app, which Humble Tim helped me resolve, and see if the same can’t be implemented so you just need to call the JS file.

Very interesting. Definitely something to support on the zone.

Just as a head up, its becomming a zone property later on. @Alezia.Kurdis

I would love to dream that not only bloom, but tone mapping as well can be configurable (!). This tone mapping thing makes the appearance in HF almost acceptable compared to the washed-out feeling normally I get when entering in HF.

Can I dream about this? Or does HF makes this script not working in next release?

I suggested this on the meeting on friday. Would love to see zones that would have funky colors like in NMS


Color toning can also be used to create various moods like “Hot” or “Cold”
