Hi, I´m working on some indoor panos and in almost all of them I had a problem with the windows. In the rendered pano the area in them is always way to bright. So I tried to set the reference image to one with a window in it, but then the rest of the image is to dark. Editing with photoshop didn`t work either and I'm out of ideas. Is there any way to spare out specific areas when in color correction mode, or is ther another quick way to safe the window areas so they don't lose almost all of their information?
Exposure bracketing is no option here as those Panos are shot with hero360 with 7 GoPro Cameras ... the conventional approach is known ;-) as you can see on the upper image (unoptimized) the windows are ok - only after optimizing the rest of the image the windows are getting too bright ...
btw) to avoid confusion why I answer - "futureweb" is our company account ;-)
I tried to correct the panos with separate layers, but unfortunately it looked bad. I also tried creating an artificial HDR Image, which worked, but I wasn't satisfied with the result. The best way was to render the panos with different gamma values and pasting them together in PS.
