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!https://www.dropbox.com/sh/unk9jbeyrxyq6m1/AABbki4OHNTbvNpxLL3GKFe8a/ehRSCamera
