Weta Digital’s Physlight toolset is a toolset that enables our renderer, Manuka, to use physically-accurate parameters such as light temperature. And details of the actual physical cameras used on set. Their specular renderer, Manuka, takes these details and reproduces them for virtual lights and cameras. On set, They can measure the actual lighting conditions being used. Also record the details of the cameras used. They pass this lighting and camera data to Manuka, to duplicate the physical filming environment with pin-point accuracy. Physlight is the cornerstone of our digital lighting pipeline.
