Hi all.

I'm fairly new to PI and use YouTube extensively to learn PI via beginner tutorials. In all tutorials, when both tools are use, DBE is run before BN.


So my question, for an OSC using calibration frames, once integrated, which tool should be used first?

Thanks in advance,

Phil.

I think it's the same regardless of camera. I run BN after background extraction because, to my mind, I want to remove distracting gradients which impact the background before trying to neutralize the remaining, hopefully flat, background. This is followed by a color balance.
