What does a digital camera RAW file store?
When I use a photo develop program like Capture One, Affinity Photo or darktable I don’t really need to care. I am presented with an image, I can tweak it and hopefully get out a good looking digital photo. But when I want to know what color an object in a photo has? What do […]
New year, new chapter
I thought it’s time for a new chapter on the website again. The chapter is called “Numbers and (their) meaning” when working with digital (image) files. Here is a small introduction to the topic and here the link to the first article.
Update: DPX linear light encoding limits
The page “1.2.5. DPX log encoding limits” was a bit outdated, so I updated the page with the help of Nuke 14 and the new OCIOv2 configs for ACES 1.3 that ship with it. The new LogC4 format from ARRI is included as well as two BlackMagicDesign camera encodings that are finally available via OCIOv2.

new article: Working colourspace implications
I am happy to have finished another article that was long in the making. I even had to stop working on it and finished the article One scene – many images before. But somehow it made sense, because this article was still also in the middle of some thought processes. But here is now the […]

This evening I saw on ACESCentral.com that the download for OpenColorIO-Config-ACES 1.0.0 is available now. I updated the article Blender 3.4 alpha & OCIO v2 accordingly and I will start soon to do some tests in Blender and Nuke. The ACES 1.2 release candidate is the last version that will be available for the OCIOv1 […]
Autumn is here and so there will be soon new Apple OS versions. In the upcoming weeks there should be coming the MacOS Ventura and the iPad 16.1 releases. Of course I will do some HDR tests once the updates are available. In the meantime I cleaned up the subdomain hdr.toodee.de and the HDR-Gallery pages. […]
