Aurora HDR 2017 by Macphun — Pre-order, and Demo Video!
Last year, Macphun released Aurora HDR Pro, an all-new HDR generation app that was developed in cooperation with Trey Ratcliff — arguably one of the most well-known HDR enthusiasts out there.
When it first came out, I thought it was cool but wasn't blown away by it, and so never did really get into it (and to be fair, I've never been much of an HDR guy to begin with). But this new version is not only easier to get great results from, in many cases it also gives great results without doing any adjustments at all. And to me that's what makes it really cool.
There are some very impressive new features that I'll need to spend some significant time with to really wrap my head around (the luminosity mask tool is extremely cool) and I may even kick off a Live Training series based on this, but overall I think this is quite a nice upgrade.
DISCLAIMER: I was hired by Macphun to create a promo video, which you can see below, so I am definitely biased in this. But watch my full video below where I explore and open a series of sequences and judge for yourself! Also if you choose to pre-order, I will earn an affiliate fee — so if you're buying, please buy here! Thanks ;-)
