NAME

       radiance-experttools — Specialty programs of the Radiance package, used by experts

DESCRIPTION

       This  manual  page  documents  briefly the debugcal, genambpos, genrhgrid, glaze, mgf2inv,
       mgfilt, nff2rad, objpict, optics2rad, pcwarp, pdelta, pgblur,  plot4,  ra_hexbit,  ra_pfm,
       rlux, vinfo and xyzimage commands.

       These  specialty  programs  of  the  Radiance  package  are commonly only used by experts,
       therefore the Radiance distribution does not contain full manpages for them.

   debugcal
       debugcal is a script to debug cal files for Radiance

       Takes octree and rcalc options as arguments.  One  of  the  rcalc  options  should  be  -f
       calfile.  Note  that  the  real  arguments  A1, A2, etc must also be given. Input is a ray
       origin and direction, such as that produced by ximage.

   genambpos
       genambpos is a script which puts coloured markers (spheres) at points where  hemispherical
       sampling was initiated.  The locations and levels are taken from the binary ambient file.

   genrhgrid
       genrhgrid is a program to generate Radiance section grid representations

   glaze
       Complex glazing model (goes with glaze1.cal and glaze2.cal)

   mgf2inv
       mgf2inv is a translator from MGF to Inventor (or VRML) format

   mgfilt
       mgfilt is a filter for MGF

   nff2rad
       nff2rad converts Neutral File Format input to Radiance scene descriptions.

   objpict
       objpict  makes  a  nice  multi-view  picture  of an object. Command line arguments contain
       materials and object files.

   optics2rad
       optics2rad converts Optics 5 output to correct Radiance input.

   pbilat
       Bilateral Filter.

   pcwarp
       Intended as more general substitute for macbetcal, but never quite worked.

   pdelta
       pdelta computes 1976 CIE Lab deltaE* between two Radiance pictures.

   pgblur
       pgblur applies Gaussian blur without resizing the  image.  More  efficient  than  straight
       pfilt for large blurs.

   plot4
       plot4 is a program to put four metafile pages onto one.

   ra_hexbit
       ra_hexbit is a program to generate bitmap files for use with hexbit4x1.fnt.

   ra_pfm
       ra_pfm is a program to convert to/from Poskanzer Float Map image format using pvalue.

   rlux
       rlux computes illuminance from ray origin and direction.

   vinfo
       vinfo is a wrapper around vim to edit information header in Radiance files.

   xyzimage
       xyzimage is a program to display one or more CIE XYZE pictures using ximage.
