iMMERSE Pro: Solaris

iMMERSE Pro: Solaris offers a powerful lens diffraction system that simulates the bloom and exposure control of a camera lens.

Basic Arguments

  • Log Exposure Bias: Adjusts exposure using a logarithmic formula. Increasing this value from 0 doubles the brightness (e.g., 1 results in twice the original exposure, 2 results in four times the original exposure). Decreasing it from 0 halves the brightness.

  • Log HDR Whitepoint: Sets the highest whitepoint Solaris will consider for bloom. Lower values cause more bloom in darker areas, while higher values shift bloom towards brighter areas.

  • Bloom Intensity: Adjusts the overall strength of the bloom effect. Higher values result in a more pronounced bloom, while lower values produce a subtler effect.

  • Bloom Radius: Sets the width of the bloom effect. A larger radius spreads the bloom over a wider area, creating a softer look.

  • Bloom Hazyness: Controls the amount of haze in the bloom effect. Lower values maintain more detail where the bloom appears, while higher values increase haze and reduce clarity.

  • High Resolution Input: Enables high-resolution sampling. This is useful for capturing detailed or small objects that need to glow, enhancing the precision of the bloom effect.

  • Mask by Depth: Enables depth-based masking in Solaris, allowing the bloom effect to be influenced by the scene‚Äôs depth information.

  • Depth Mask Strength: Adjusts the intensity of depth masking. Higher values apply more depth masking, reducing bloom in distant areas. Lower values apply less depth masking, allowing more bloom throughout the scene.

  • SOLARIS_PERF_MODE: Activates a performance-optimized mode for Solaris, reducing computational load. This mode is useful for low-performance setups.
