default module order

The following sections describe the default module order in the new scene-referred workflow and the legacy display-referred workflow. Note that in the following sections the module order goes from top (input file) to bottom (output image).

  6. hot pixels
  7. raw denoise
  8. demosaic
  9. denoise (profiled)
  10. surface blur
  11. rotate pixels
  12. scale pixels
  13. lens correction
  14. haze removal
