DRinstant 4 gives you the ability to get fast, brilliant results thanks to its simple user interface. However, when you want to take full control, it offers powerful professional features that let you finetune settings to achieve the precise results you demand. Should you desire a natural effect or seek creative interpretations of a scene with more vivid colours, the standalone provides a broad range of tone-mapping options. Alternatively, the Adobe Lightroom plug-in can be used to seamlessly integrate into your existing workflows and export results for editing in Lightroom.
HDRinstant 4 also introduces the ability to view the metadata of video files, while a new histogram feature provides at-a-glance understanding of exposure. For computers with a dedicated GPU, it is possible for users to select this more powerful processing option to ensure faster results. Similarly, users can select how many frames to use to balance processing speed and quality, fine-tuning settings according to preference. To help even the most demanding users ensure optimal results, there is a zoom feature to help examine and select the best frame of video, while a new comparison feature (available in the standalone version only) lets users compare the results with the original frame – a great way to see the effect of HDRinstant’s dramatic noise reduction abilities.
