Radiance image viewer and analysis for architectural light study
Radiance simulation tool allows users to produce highly realistic images which contain a lot of information concerning light. However, the image format is specific and information about lighting within the image cannot be easily studied without the use of Radiance. In that respect, we could only provide our clients images in "more classical" format and a textual analysis of them.
In order to give clients the freedom to further investigate themselves the images resulting from image simulations, we developed a Radiance image viewer that does not require Radiance knowledge.
Image investigation and false colors:
False coloring is in our view a very powerful tool to investigate images. It is also a fantastic communication tool for technical images such as Radiance images.
We think we developed within RadDisplay an easy and nice interface for false colors. You can set number of colors, precise limits between colors, etc.
Give RadDisplay a try to see what it's all about!
