Can ReShade PAUSE Games?

I want to make some comparison screenshots for new games like The Rise of the Tomb Raider and Tom Clancy's - The Division, but many of these games do not have a Console button that could pause the game, allowing me to change ReShade and in-game settings on-the-fly and then comparing them. For example, I want to compare Tom Clancy's - The Division SMAA-Ultra setting to ReShade's SMAA setting, but it can ONLY happen if I can pause a specific frame. NVidia does it somehow when it releases its Performance Guides for the new games, like The Division and Rise of the Tomb Raider. Games like Fallout 4 can easily be paused by pressing the Console button/key... Any ideas how to pause The Division or Rise of the Tomb Raider?

I was wondering maybe ReShade itself could come with a feature that would Capture and/or Pause games at any point?

No. That would require to pause the game's clock, which every game implements differently.

You may use Autohotkey to do 'PAUSE' the game's process.

Have a look please: autohotkey.com/board/topic/78978-process-suspend-and-unsuspend/

First, and before you consider using the script, Install Autohotkey.

If you need more help, don't hesitate to ask : )

Cheers!

That won't help you. Suspending the process A) renders it unresponsive and B) suspends ReShade as well.
