Photo Editing Nodes add-on for Post production


Akash Hamirwasia writes:

Compositing is one of the important part of your render. It allows you to add that final detail to your render to make it look awesome! But Blender’s Compositor can get scary most of the times. People don’t use the compositor much, as adding one effect makes them add, lots of nodes. After doing it, if you want to change one value of one node, you start searching for that one node and after that searching for another, thereby losing your focus on your render. So to make Blender’s Compositor easy and fun to use, I created:

“Photo Editing Nodes”

Photo Editing Nodes is a collection of nodes, which allow you to add Photo editing effects to your render without leaving Blender! All the nodes are highly customisable, so that you can get more options with less nodes. You can drag and drop these nodes, in your scene and in less that 4 nodes, you can get a completely composited render.

  1. Thanks for the addon.
    I do not understand how the addon should be used. Is there any way to add nodes without having to go to File > append? From where?

    • You can use the provided add-on for that. Install it by going to File Menu > User Preferences > Addons. Then click "Install From file" and select the downloaded add-on file which ends with "_Install". Once this is done, you should see add-on loaded in Blender. Just activate it, and the nodes will be appended directly :)

      If you have any other questions mail me at support[at]

      • Yes, I can install and activate it. The problem is I can not find the nodes under "Add" menu in Compositing nodes. I searched the panels too.
        Perhaps some problem with the paths in Linux? I use Linux btw.

      • Ok, I've replaced in line 53 "\\Photo_Editing_Nodes.blend\\NodeTree\\" by "//Photo_Editing_Nodes.blend\\NodeTree\\" , and now it is working well.
        Please, you tell me if you have seen this message, otherwise I will try to report.

          • I clarify that I have no idea about coding. I had seen that path was written that way above, so I modified that line and it worked. You try to investigate the correct way that should be used in Linux, maybe in #blendercoders IRC channel.
            Thank you
