It’s not unusual to receive converted, clamped, or even plain SDR files encoded as HDR from our clients. I’ve built a simple tool for people to inspect HDR files before sending them over to production, hopefully saving both parties some time, while educating people a bit in the pitfalls of HDR imaging.
Ofc this tool is very crude for now and lacks professional-grade actual inspection, but it serves the purpose as it runs in the browser where anybody in the workflow can test, thanks to WebGL.
Feel free to use, suggest, make a PR, drop the bombs etc. But please have mercy, it’s the first time I share a personal tool, not meant to go public.
All suggestions and criticism are welcome.
The idea is quite simple: Solids are in the SDR spectrum. Wireframes are HDR. You can toggle both, tweak the scale factors, change color etc, to better visualize.
Hope it helps more folks.
