filter a RADIANCE picture
performs anti-aliasing and scaling on a RADIANCE picture.
The program makes two passes on the picture file in order to
set the exposure to the correct average value.
is given, the standard input is read.
- -x res
Set the output x resolution to
This must be less than or equal to the x dimension
of the target device.
is given as a slash followed by a real number, the input resolution
is divided by this number to get the output resolution.
By default, the output resolution is the same as the input.
- -y res
Set the output y resolution to
similar to the specification of the x resolution above.
- -p rat
Set the pixel aspect ratio to
Either the x or the y resolution will be reduced so that the pixels have
this ratio for the specified picture.
is zero, then the x and y resolutions will adhere to the given maxima.
Zero is the default.
Pixel aspect ratio is being corrected, so do not write PIXASPECT
variable to output file.
- -e exp
Adjust the exposure.
is preceded by a '+' or '-', the exposure is interpreted in f-stops
(ie. the power of two).
is interpreted as a straight multiplier.
The individual primaries can be changed using
Multiple exposure options have a cumulative effect.
- -t lamp
Color-balance the image as if it were illuminated by fixtures of
the given type.
The specification must match a pattern listed in the lamp
lookup table (see the -f option below).
- -f lampdat
Use the specified lamp lookup table rather than the default (lamp.tab).
Use only one pass on the file.
This allows the exposure to be controlled absolutely, without
Note that a single pass is much quicker and should be used whenever
the desired exposure is known and star patterns are not required.
Use two passes on the input.
This is the default.
Use box filtering (default).
Box filtering averages the input pixels corresponding
to each separate output pixel.
- -r rad
Use Gaussian filtering with a radius of
relative to the output pixel size.
This option with a radius around 0.6 and a reduction in image width and
height of 2 or 3 produces the highest quality pictures.
A radius greater than 0.7 results in a defocused picture.
- -m frac
Limit the influence of any given input pixel to
of any given output pixel.
This option may be used to mitigate the problems associated with
inadequate image sampling, at the expense of a slightly blurred
The fraction given should not be less than the output picture dimensions
over the input picture dimensions (x_o*y_o/x_i/y_i), or blurring
will occur over the entire image.
This option implies the
option for Gaussian filtering, which defaults to a radius of 0.6.
- -h lvl
Set intensity considered ``hot'' to
This is the level above which areas of the image will begin
to exhibit star diffraction patterns (see below).
The default is 100 watts/sr/m2.
- -n N
Set the number of points on star patterns to
A value of zero turns star patterns off.
The default is 0.
(Note that two passes are required for star patterns.)
- -s val
Set the spread for star patterns to
This is the value a star pattern will have at the
edge of the image.
The default is .0001.
Average hot spots as well.
By default, the areas of the picture above the hot level
are not used in setting the exposure.
