ACCESSIBLE AND FAST
Presets and automated tools: be productive instantly
Beginners will feel comfortable instantly thanks to a wide range of presets and HDR styles that can be previewed and applied in real-time. HDRengine also features many automated tools such as Auto Tone Mapper, auto contrast or auto alignment to rush the whole HDR process.
Blazing performance: revolutionary real-time HDR for a unique creative experience
HDRengine features the fastest HDR engines available today, allowing full real-time tone mapping and HDR manipulations, whether working with multiple exposures or a single photo. Real-time HDR means more time being creative and less time waiting for an image to refresh or a tool to respond.
Single image HDR: make your best shots even better
While HDRengine makes the tone mapping of bracketed exposures a very simple task, photographers can also dramatically enhance an existing single photo by using a large selection of HDR effects along with brightness, contrast, saturation and white balance controls.
Intuitive and responsive: easy to learn and master
HDRengine is an intuitive HDR application, easy to learn and master: the application’s responsive, elegant interface offers a well-organized and efficient workflow so each step of the HDR process is extremely easy to understand. Other notable features include instant raw photo and image thumbnails, full, real-time edition history with animated replay, full documentation and video tutorials directly accessible from within the application.
ACCURATE AND PRO
Best imaging technologies: no compromise on quality and precision
While aimed at beginners and amateurs, HDRengine share the same high-end image editing technologies and color model used in Oloneo PhotoEngine™, the company’s flagship application for professional HDR and image processing. This full real-time, 32-bit floating-point per channel (96-bit per pixel), ultra-wide gamut, full resolution and non-destructive image-editing engine is combined with Oloneo’s unique color model to guarantee photographers against any loss of image data and quality during the HDR process.
