Cool, progress is being made. As long as it doesn't end up like Duke Nukem Forever...

With the examples that have been used for demonstration, clearly this is an amazing workflow solution. I am not a computer science person, if fact I know nothing about using code. I am eager to learn how to use the dcraw and zero noise, but, I got to tell you, so far, the information provided goes right over my head. After numerous  attempts to process an image using dcraw I have hit the wall. Can someone explain, in much simpler terms, without cryptic abbreviations, a top to bottom guide to using this extraordinary procedure? Please!

Thanks

Hi Doug
Sorry I can not give you a step-by step guide to ZeroNoise. As I see it, there are 2 choices:
1-Acquire a BASIC knowledge of the Unix SURFACE. Nothing with code. If you are on a Mac, you may find the link useful I gave in post #30. I'm sure there is something for Windows, too.
2-Wait. I think the final version of ZeroNoise will have a GUI (Graphical User Interface).
Not much of a consolation, maybe? - Hening.

Using Zero Noise is not difficult at all, the difficult part comes when tone mapping the resulting image.
Zero Noise just provides an optimum exposure blending in terms of noise, sharpness and ghosting (if needed).

Someone in Dpreview drew this quick tutorial:



The present version has some new features but the basic procedure is the same.

How do we do the Zero Noise technique? What do we need to download? I'm on OSX10.4.11/PPC
