Re: DxO Viewpoint Volume Deformation corrections

Here's an example of how Volume deformation correction can be used.

This is a typical wide angle shot, with people at the edges looking unflatteringly fat. Note that the lens distortion has been corrected; volume distortion happens even with fully corrected images.

Lens distortion corrected, but people at the edges have been stretched into the corners, and look fat. This happens with all wide angle shots.

This can be fixed very easily with DxO Viewpoint:

DxO Viewpoint used to apply horizontal and vertical corrections for volume distortion. Straight lines remain straight.

Viewpoint also offers diagonal volume correction, which looks better with people, but bends straight lines:

Diagonal correction applied: the people are less distorted, but lines are bent.

These automatic adjustments are very easy to apply, and you can decide which type of correction looks better. In this case, I prefer the diagonal correction.

I'm not aware of an equivalent, easy, automatic tool in other RAW editors (it also works with JPEGs).

Thanks for the info.
