Moire anyone?

Re: Moire anyone?

I encountered a significant amount of moiré for the first time earlier this week with the tulle fabric of a black tutu. The fabric is curved and layered, and this created interference patterns especially when there were bright colors in the background. The areas affected were obvious when pixel-peeping at full-resolution, but you had to know where it was at when viewing the same image downsampled for viewing on the screen or when printed.

Having said that, I was pleased with Lightroom's handling of the moiré using its dedicated adjustment brush. Unlike with other brushes the effect is difficult to see as you paint with it, but once Lightroom finishes its processing it is quite obvious.

If you frequently shoot weddings etc. where lace and similar fabrics are common, dealing with the moiré could add to your post-processing time, but for most users and subjects it appears to be a non-issue.
