Houdini camera lens vs real camera lens...

Recommended Posts

Hello;

When I set "Focal Length" of Houdini's camera to 35mm, is this equal to a real 35mm camera lens?

 

Thanks.

hi

no. in order to match real camera framing you need to match focal length and aperture size as well. then you should get more less the same view. Houdini camera doesn't take into account lens distortion and that sort of things thou, so it's never gonna be 100% accurate. These minor optical properties are typically matched in comp stage (or you'd have to write a lens shader to do that for you)
