Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Ghosting and Photomatix, part of Shooting and Processing High Dynamic Range Photographs (HDR).
Photomatix has excellent deghosting tools.…Deghosting is the process of removing those semi-transparent ghosty artifacts that…occur in a final HDR merge when something in your scene moved between frames.…And we already did a Deghosting demo of these three images using Photoshop and…we're about to do the same demo using Photomatix.…If you didn't see the Photoshop version, let me just show you the images real quick.…I'm shooting these kids and they had the nerve to move between frames, can you believe that?…I went back when I was a kid and someone who was shooting a bracketed set of me,…I knew enough not to move. But with these kids these days, I just don't get it.…
Anyway, you can see his arms are flapping around there and his head is turning,…and what that means is when I merge I am going to see ghosty arms and heads,…and I don't want that. So let's go to it.…I'm going to select these three images, drop them on to Photomatix, just like I normally would.…Tell it to merge for HDR processing. These are the images I want to work with,…
