HDR video for Visual FX

Another day, another revolution!

This time it’s a real-world application of HDR video, brought to you by some smart Swedes. More precisely, a research group headed by Jonas Unger at the Linköping University. Together with Spheron-VR they created this insanely awesome HDR video camera. I’ve blogged about it before, but recently I had the opportunity to play with some footage and contribute this demo video:

So far the Teaser, stay tuned for a full Making-Of where I will show you a few things that I learned in the process. In the meantime, check out the new home of HDR video on the web:

If you're heading to Siggraph, make sure circle the talk on Next-Generation IBL using HDR Video in your must-see calendar. There will be even more exciting things shown regarding 3D reconstruction (sneak peek here). And if your ticket is only good for the exhibition floor, drop by Spheron-VR at booth 254 (floorplan here).
