Difference(s) between SweetFX and Frameworks?

I've been using SweetFX+ReShade to get Elder Scrolls Online to look its best and though it definitely helps, I felt there could be more from using the Presets available on the Sfx.thelazy.net. I decided to look around for other Presets or other programs and was recommended Frameworks which brings me to my question:

What, if any, is the difference between SFX and Frameworks? From what I can it seems like Frameworks is a bundle of everything into one while SFX is led Ceejay alone which makes me think SFX has differences.

I haven't messed with Frameworks yet due to OC my CPU and GPU since I got some new hardware. Thanks for any help.

Right now the Framework (shader pack) is essentially a combination of most shaders that were written for ReShade, the SweetFX shaders are a part of it. The reason SweetFX is still provided as a separate option is mainly because it is well known.

WIth the upcoming 1.0 release this subdivision will probably change though. Instead of three download options (which is confusing for many) there will be only one, the combined "ReShade Framework", which contains the ReShade DLLs and a basic framework for shader developers to easily add new shaders to which are compatible to each other. All the available shaders can then be downloaded and configured through the config tool that is currently tested as part of the Framework shader pack.
