T67107: Open EXR Files Unreadable
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Hi Philip, gosh – quick turnaround, and I didn’t even pay for this software lol.

Question 1, no.
Question 2, no, but here is a download link!AsSm2OvH_zG-gYpI2-T5T3eb905txg?e=58Wgec – the file is 127 meg. I don’t believe in compression lol.
Question 3, yes…I just tried to import file back into Blender’s video editor and it seemed to be readable. I don’t use Blender as a compositor – this is how you get around the problem of rendering and time spent on rendering complex scenes. In other words, I use Blender more like a photographic camera and studio. Hence I can only say – Blender seemed to read the EXR file.

I’ve attached the Blend file, it’s a Blendswap file – I’m not much of a modeler, more of a sculptor using Makehuman to create characters. So, it should be set correctly.

I’m terribly sorry if I’ve wasted your time, and this is some stupid thing I haven’t picked up on. I’m also equally sorry if this is a bug and I didn’t report sooner. I thought someone must have the same issue somewhere, and would report it. Mea Culpa.

Oh, I’m not sure if this is an issue – but the Luts filters and the RRT option is missing in the client version of 2.8 I’m using – I’ve just shifted to HDR processing and color grading, there’s a workaround, but it was great to have in Blender. They weren’t missing in the earlier version that worked either.

I should also mention, that I tried to uninstall Blender and remove all the components which also includes the registry to try and reset the software – I actually couldn’t find the registry entry – maybe I should have tried harder? It seems, that one version of 2.8 – an early version approx. mid Jan – has been corrupted by the client version. This didn’t happen when I unzipped a couple of different beta version…one approx. March, and one in the last few weeks.

Finally, finally…my computer specs, just in case – I have an Acer Helios 500 Predator Laptop with a NVIDIA GTX1070, and no Intel GPU. This has been disabled by the manufacture.

Thanks again, I love Blender – with my work around, the software can create crazy quality animations. We’re truly at the beginning of an amazing era for creativity…but first we need to get the Apple fan service to realize – Apple make content consuming machines and not creation machines…unless you want to shell out for the 6,500 dollar Mac and 1,000 dollar monitor stand. Ugh – errant button pushers.

Please keep me informed of the issue, I understand how busy you are though with the new release. I think I just read Blender was awarded 1.3 million or thereabouts – sorry I can’t remember, but well done anyway!

Kind Regards 3D Animated Symphony no.2 – Movement 1 – And All We Need…
