I will release this Addon with a full documentation on every aspect of it later, what i would like at this stage is some User Feedback on usability and whatever comes to your mind.
This Addon simulates EVERY aspect of a Real Physical Camera - based on the correct Mathematics.
"Blender's Camera is Physical" - You might say - well, correctly so, but not completely. There are "links" between things, like Focus Distance affects Focal Length and Exposure and so on. This Addon simulates every single one of them.
-Fixed Keymap Bug
-Set Defocus Key to F (was D - conflicted with GreasePencil)
-removed WIP Menu.
-Click Focus - Use F Key in Viewport (best in Camera View Mode ;-)
-The Physical Camera works fully with Cycles and most Renderers (just not yet completely with other Renderes than Cycles. So far, yafaray, vray, luxrender, mitsuba, Blender Internal are supported. Again - not everything is working there - but most things are.)
This Function i consider as one of the Main uses - One Camera to rule them all. Let me now you suggestions for more Renderers or what else.
-The Physical Camera is "calibrated" to match real World. I will explain this further in the Release Documentation. The Camera comes with "Sunny 16 Rule" settings preset - So just increase the Sun strength until the Image is nice and bright. (You will then have a "correctish" ratio between Sun and other Lamps)
-Some things are quirky - it's a pre-release - Sensor Size, FPS, DOF_Object do not work fully properly.
-The Presets System is most likely subject to change - not quite sure how yet - some input is welcome.
-The UI tries to explain as much as possible by itself - like functions might turn things Grey - inactive (Well, mainly the exposure function does this). I would like to hear some opinions on this.
-Please take some time to Read the Informations (Hover over things) - Again, feedback welcome.
-At last: This Addon will most likely change ALL your Camera parameters - you might do some tests before using it on production files... hehe.
And last but net least: I hope you enjoy it - please give me some feedback. If you don't like it - give me feedback.
