32 or 16 bit Video Export Option

  • Hi,

    I'm adventuring myself in the video creation and it is amazing how fast I can produce and render videos in Enscape.


    One struggle I'm having though is that Enscape only allows 8 bit images/videos as output and I rely a lot on high range images at post production stage. The higher range workflow opens up a whole world of new possibilities and adjusts to lights, shadows and color.


    8 bit tends to break really fast in the post production stages, so, I would like to suggest to add the option to export raw or 16 bit videos/images.


    Bellow a comparison of Enscape output as .exr and post edited image.



    Another suggestion would be to have a real world workflow to camera settings and light. this way we can easily mimic real world cameras, depth of field and motion blur.


    Best regards,

    Alexandre

    Thank you alexandrecollaco , the ability to export renderings/videos in 16 bit has been requested before, I'll forward your inquiry accordingly. You probably did, but just to make sure, you did experiment with all the settings like Exposure, Contrast settings, etc. to see if that would help you already with achieving an image that is more to your desire? In this case, in fact, it looks like the image just could use a bit more Exposure and Colour Saturation actually? Both can of course be adjusted via the Enscape Visual Settings already.


    Finally,

    I am not entirely sure what you're referring to here exactly. I can gladly forward it as a feature request if you could go into a bit more detail? Thank you! :)

    Sometimes the Enscape sliders are not enough and also there are some difference between realtime images and rendered ones. So, it is easier and more precise to make adjustments in post.

    I'm working on a video (as a study) where I used more of the Enscape controls. Not sure if it will come out good but i learned a lot about some minor workarounds in Enscape.

    Also I realized that the file sizes can grow really fast, specially when rendering it as lossless. Not sure if working on 16 bit is pactical for me anymore.

    Most renders nowadays have a real world workflow.

    Cameras for example mimic real cameras, they have exposure, Iso, f-stop, aperture size, lens in mm,....

    Lights have candelas and lumens as units (which we can get the values from manufacturers) . Enscape Rhino unfortunately doesn't have good lights.
