HDRReader

vtk-examples/Cxx/IO/HDRReader


Description

Demonstrates how to read high-dynamic-range imaging files.

A callback is used to print out the color window (move the mouse horizontally over the image) and color level (move the mouse vertically over the image).

This is based on IO/Image/Testing/Cxx/TestHDRReader.cxx in the VTK source files.

Download and Build HDRReader

Click here to download HDRReader and its CMakeLists.txt file. Once the tarball HDRReader.tar has been downloaded and extracted,

cd HDRReader/build

If VTK is installed:

cmake ..

If VTK is not installed but compiled on your system, you will need to specify the path to your VTK build:

cmake -DVTK_DIR:PATH=/home/me/vtk_build ..

Build the project:

make

and run it:

./HDRReader

WINDOWS USERS

Be sure to add the VTK bin directory to your path. This will resolve the VTK dll's at run time.
