lowlight vision

Simulate human lowlight vision making pictures look closer to human lowlight perception. This module can also be used to perform a day-to-night conversion.

The idea is to calculate a scotopic vision image, which is perceived by the rods rather than than the cones in the eyes under low light. Scotopic lightness is then mixed with photopic value (regular color image pixel) using some blending function. This module is also able to simulate the Purkinje effect by adding some blueness to the dark parts of the image.

This module comes with several presets which can be used to get a better idea of how the module works.
