Chaos Corona - Tone Mapping in 3DS Max & Cinema4D

Chaos Corona team has recently shared a very useful & quick tutorial on how to utilize the latest Tone Mapping tool in both 3ds Max and Cinema 4D.

Below are some of the new features of tone mapping options:

  • All tone mapping options (Simple exposure, White Balance, Contrast, Saturation, and more…) can be arranged, switch on & off, or deleted as for user needs).
  • ACES film looks, newly added well know color grading film look.
  • Can add new operators with the plus button.
  • Old highlight compression is now changed to Reinhard highlight compression.
  • Old Filmic Highlight and shadow are under Filmic mapping.
  • Users can add as many operators as their requirements (can mix many look-up tables).
  • The new preset setting, for quick tone mapping (Bold, Cold and warm cinematic, and more.).
  • Can override tone mapping for each individual camera and can instantly toggle between them.
  • Can use either, simple exposure or photographic exposure to use really photographic settings.
