natural color and lighting

Filmic is an optional color configuration for intermediate to advanced imagers using Blender's Cycles raytracing engine. It adds a closer-to-photorealistic view transform for your renders. For imagers working with non-photorealistic rendering, it also will bring significant dynamic range and lighting capabilities to your work, as well as potentially open up correct transforms for rendering to HDR displays and other such forward looking technology. It is as close to a magic button you can get for an experienced imager.

How to Install

Download Filmic here: https://github.com/sobotka/filmic-blender
  1. Download Filmic using the link above. Replace your current OpenColorIO configuration in Blender with this version.
    1. The Blender OpenColorIO configuration directory is located in:BLENDER/bin/VERSIONNUMBER/datafiles/colormanagementMove the existing colormanagement directory to a backup location, and place the contents of this repository into a new colormanagement directory.
    2. Optionally, instead of replacing the actual directory, use the envrionment variable to specify where the OCIO configuration lives:export OCIO=/path/to/where/the/filmic-blender/config.ocio
  2. From within the Color Management panel, change the View to your desired contrast level and render.
