I can't remember playing any battlefield (3, 4 and 1) without Reshade and I haven't been banned.
I have had a ban for using SweetFX (Battlefield 3 though not BF4, but presumably the same). Punkbuster doesn't like the dxgi.dll. I now have a "Violation (GAMEHACK) #81576" against me and I can't seem to get in any games
Feel free to navigate them, and you'll find a lot more.
Punkbuster hates hooks, you'll get kicked and endup banned if you use them with either BF3 and/or BF4, this has been discussed and confirmed in battlelog forums years ago.
And like I said, DICE is actively banning www.pcgamer.com/dice-hints-bans-color-co...ng-battlefield-3-mo/
I understand color correction doesn't make post processing tools as whole, but the option is there, I myself have been kicked from games on BF3 while using Reshade (SMAA and Sharpening).
Bottom of line, never use post processing tools in online games (or use at your own risk), anti-cheating tools won't like that.
Reshade and other post processing programs fall under the GAMEHACK category, they're not under known signatures but hook into the game, and if punkbuster doesn't like it you get kicked (and risk a ban).
Bottom of line (like I said before) use post processing tools at your own risk in multiplayer games, you're risking to get banned due to anti-cheat heuristics.
