A picture viewer for artists and designers

Anchorpoint allows you to browse and view PSD, HDRi and EXR images. Use ACES or other color spaces for correct color representations.

Meters by Raphael Rau. Meters is an old analogue machine with an oscilloscope and CRT screen. It was modeled in Cinema 4D, rendered with Octane using an ACES workflow. The EXR rendering can be shown in Anchorpoint with correct colors.
