Hello!

I am releasing the ehRSCamera addon v1.0 for Softimage to use with Redshift.

The addon will allow you to use real camera parameters into Softimage along with the combination of RSPhotographic Exposure, RS Bokeh and Motion Blur, to get accurate real world DoF and cinematographic motion blur.

These parameters are driven by the f/stop, lens focal lenght and shutter speed.

DoF is calculated using the lens focal lenght and lens apperture with very accurate results. Visual aids for focus target, near distance focus and far distance focus are visible, and change interectivly when you drive the camera paremeters, or change the distance to focus to place your objects inside or outside the focal range.

A rotary shutter speed option is available as well to set the degrees of the rotary shutter. This will drive the time the shutter expose the “film” to light in terms of the actual frame rate, and do the math to set the Redshift motion blur parameters.

A white balance option in °K has been implemented. You can set your RS Physical Light and RS IES Light, to color temperature, and have now accurate in camera white balance with no more guessing of what the RGB values should be.

It can be used in conjunction with HDRI images with the Redshift Dome Light or Environment to adjust the shot to the lighting conditions of the HDRI image.

The addon comes with real camera presets of the backfilm or sensor size, and aspect ratio.

A slider for changing the scene scale in terms of SI units = x/cm will quickly adjust the scale of the camera optical calculations to show the new values of the DoF and focal range.

You can create a new camera or turn a pre-existing one into a Redshift Camera.

A “Manual Mode” option is included that will allow you to control the RS Bokeh, RS Photographic Exposure and motion blur independently of the camera.

The “Auto Mode” will bring back the camera to drive all these parameters again.

I included a User’s Manual to describe all the plugin options.

I hope that you will find this addon fun and useful for your personal use or production.

Cheers and happy renderings!

Thanks a lot Cacoman !

Might be I ran into a little bug. I just reloaded a scene in 2014 SP2 with an ehRSCamera, and it looks like the camera PPG is broken. And when I try to render a frame I get an error:
"# ERROR : expected an indented block - [line 2 in update code]
# ERROR : 2190 - The scripted operator connected to RED_Epic_Camera.camera.Redshift_Photographic_Exposure.PEEnable produced a runtime error during its evaluation and will no longer be evaluated.
#"

If you want I can send you the scene file.

cheers,

-Ronald

Hello. Yes it is a bug. It has something to do with the scripted operators at the Bokeh and Photographic Exposure. When you reload the scene they are breaking.

I am still working on this, as those are the only scripted operators that are breaking after reloading.

But unfortunatley or fortunatley (depends haha), I am in the middle of a couple of projects, so thank you for your patience.

I made a quick "fix" work around and the link is updated with the latest.

After reloading the scene just put the camera in "Manual" Mode and then back in "Auto" from the ehRSCamera Menu. It will bring back your camera fully functional again.
