Altus 1.8.0 on Mac



  • Hello to all , Im new on this forum.

    I'm trying to use Altus on Mac with Terminal but I can not find the help menu.

    Could someone tell me how to use Altus on Mac? And if it is possible to apply it to an animation made with C4D and Octane?

    Thanks in advance
    Diego

    At this time, macOS does not ship with a GUI. Altus for macOS is only available as a command-line interface (CLI) application.

    To get help with the CLI, use altus-cli --help. I've included the output from 1.8 here:

    Usage: altus-1.8.0.bin [OPTION...] - de-noise images that were generated using Monte-Carlo methods
    
    Application options:
       --config=<config-file>        use a configuration file to specify program inputs
       --quality={preview, production}filter the image at different quality levels
       --filter-aov={prefiltered, preview, production}filter and output the AOV input images at different
                                     quality levels

       --kc_1=<decimal>              filter parameter that controls the sensitivity of
                                     the first candidate filter to color differences. A
                                     higher value leads to more agressive filtering.
                                     (default 0.45)
       --kc_2=<decimal>              filter parameter that controls the sensitivity of
                                     the second candidate filter to color differences. A
                                     higher value leads to more agressive filtering.
                                     (default 0.45)
       --kc_3=<decimal>              value not used. Present for backward compatability
                                     with older configuration files.

                                     the second pass filter to color differences. A
                                     higher value leads to more agressive filtering.
