Hi all, I hope that I can find help regarding this question: we are generating HDR images using the Five-Phase Method, my question (I guess), has to do with the following sentence in the description of the new releases:
Version 5.3 (Released September 1, 2020)
>> Changed indexed (numbered) output from dctimestep to start from 0 rather
than 1, to make it more consistent with expected input naming.
I’ve noticed that, in the Three-Phase Method, the images start with 0000, however with the Three-Phase-Direct and the Sun-Coefficient, the output is printed starting with 0001.
dctimestep -o results/3ph/mid_%04d.hdr matrices/vmtx/mid_%03d.hdr ./xml/mid.xml matrices/dmtx/mid.dmx skies/City-march21-m4.smx
The issue comes with the combination of all the phases. Ex. considering only 1 day= 24 hours, since I have images from 0 to 23 (three phase) and from 1 to 24 (Three-phase-Direct and Sun-Coefficient).
either I put
0…23 --> not such a file or directory for the 0000 file or
1…24 --> not such a file or directory for the 0024 file
I wonder if the fact that dctimestep outputs images from 0001 for the Three-phase direct and sun coefficient, could be connected to some other issue?
Not sure if this is related, but when doing the simulations with the Three-Phase, there is a warning at the end:
warning - changing output type to -oc
My version: RADIANCE 5.3a 2020-08-29 LBNL (5.3.8f3acff297)
I would appreciate your help regarding this issue, thanks in advance
