TOPIC: Any way to use Reshade shaders on Windows desktop?

Any way to use Reshade shaders on Windows desktop? 4 weeks 2 days ago #1

Hi there! First of all my sincere compliments to Crosire for his wonderful work... I can enjoy HDR quality on a 8bpc screen now! ^_^

Sadly, as I have a TN screen I'm prone to color banding and visible compression artifacts when surfing the net, consuming media online or simply using any desktop application.

Is there a way to inject the Deband shader into Windows' desktop or - to have more control - inside the single browsers and relevant software (Office, Photoshop, etc.)

I use a GTX1080 for everything, as my integrated graphics card is dormant (not connected via hardware)

Kindly let me know soon - thanks in advance for your kind help.

I had a look at the post history but couldn't find anything useful...

Has anything changed since they last asked for this function?

ReShade only works with DX/OpenGL. Now technically DWM (Windows' desktop window manager) uses DX, but it does viewport specific updates only, so even if you'd inject ReShade into it, it wouldn't work properly. So no, this is not possible with ReShade.
Cheers, crosire =)

The only way to do this, would be to capture the desktop using OBS or something similar on a second display, and then apply reshade to OBS.
