Helicon Dmap result

I continually tinker with various Focus Stacking software to see what turns up the best results.

Below is Depth Map results in Helicon Focus and Zerene Stacker:

Helicon Dmap result

Helicon Dmap result: Radius of 2 and Smoothing of 4.

Depth Map result with Zerene Stacker

Depth Map result: Zerene at 66.4% threshold setting.

For in-depth instruction on how we create focus stacks for our work, see our e-book, Focus Stacking in the Wild.
