Lens Profile Filename

You can load a lens profile lens profile (a file with the extension *.lns) which will be used to remove the distortion in the material loaded in the Texture field.

If you click on the small triangle next to the setting’s name, the lens profile parameters, with which you should already be familiar with from the Lens Distortion tool, for that lens profile will be displayed.

Contrary to textures, the values will be maintained even if the lens profile can later no longer be found. Only if the Lens Profile File field is cleared will the values also be deleted.

Image Scale [1..10000%]
Image Offset X [-500..500%]
Image Offset Y [-500..500%]

Use these values to scale and move the loaded image on the projection surface. See also the Image Scale setting for the Lens Distortion tool.


Load the image to be un-distorted into this field. This can be a single image, a sequence of images or an entire video.
