Burn Alert is a Cinema 4D R13/14 plugin that helps user during lighting calibration finding the burned regions of rendering.
Usually during this operation the user have to find the overexposed area by hand watching where are the white pixels, but when you are near to the correct balance it’s difficoult to find the difference between white pixels and pixels under the light gray limit color (rgb 242,242,242).
Burn Alert make a test and with mathematical precision show you a White / Black mask and a Burn Indicator to understand easy what are the lights to correct.
The principle of use it’s very easy:
- Setup your rendering output image file
- Launch a rendering
- Only the first time you open a new project scene file select with the Burn Alert Settings button what is the rendering output file (plugin stores always the last file choosen)
- At the end of each rendering click on Burn Alert Test to make the Burn Test
When the plugin will show you a black mask and you are satisfied with the ligthing in general of your scene you can procede to texturing and shading.
Thanks to its design you can use this tool also with all Cinema 4D compatible render engines (Maxwell Render, Vray etc etc)
