I have done some presets :)


Please open one and share them. :)

@ marty: Thank you for making those improvements to the dof and that everything will be a little easier to adjust.

Sweet! ;)
Game: Remember Me.
I use chromatic aberration, lens dirt, lens flares, and subtle anamorphic flares.



@Marty
I notice, there is some bloom effects on lens dirt shader, and on some games it is very annoying, it is not good to fit the look of the game with lens dirt effects. As a my suggestion, maybe, it will be good if you can, in the next release, implement option so that we can control bloom intensity in case of lens dirt.
Right now I tone it down by changing texture. Other then that it is working very well.

Also if there is chance, it will be good to add starburst texture as a option to activate for the lens flares effects, and possibility to change the intensity of that(but it also can be changed via texture it self). ;)


From Chapman's blog:
"As a static texture, the starburst doesn't look very good. We can, however, provide a transformation matrix to the shader which allows us to spin/warp it per frame and produce the dynamic effect we want:"

Of course there is explanation for this in detail.

Again, thank you so much for you job.

Totally possible. With my current system, mask will apply on all lensflares or none. If I apply it on the single ones, mask will be blurred, too.
Here are some pics of Chapman's lens with mask, along with a showcase of stock SSAO but with proper smoothening so it requires less samples without being too noisy - resulting in more fps.

Fantastic mate! I really appreciate your dedication to this! :)

About starburst texture, it is important to rotate it dynamically according to camera rotation, that will give the awesome effects, totally real one.
Chapman explain everything on his blog, how to use.

You can also leave option to disable/enable this effect on lens flare, and add texture in root with your shaders file, so if need to change it(the same as for lensdirt). ;)

BTW I change some parameters in your shader for lensdirt, so now there is more spread of texture on the screen with less bloom.
float lensdirtmult = dot(tex2D(SamplerBloom3, IN.txcoord.xy).xyz,0.555);

I decided not to rotate or warp it since it's totally annoying in motion, believe me.
Bloom and Lensdirt are essentially linked with each other, and the amount of "bloom" applied when only lensdirt is enabled depends on the texture itself. If you have a low contrast texture, there is more bloom than with a texture which is pitch black except the "dirt" itself.
Your code is same result like using bloom saturation 0 and increasing lensdirt intensity slightly, since 0.555 is wrong value, sum of values color is dot multiplied with should be 1.0.

While reading this I thought: maybe you could take a short look at this problem: reshade.me/forum/shader-troubleshooting/...ct-how?start=12#1341 ?

I've seen that you use the code also found in k-putts sweetfx, so technically it should be possible, right? While I like the effect, the disortion blurs the image and the cursor position becomes incorrect. And setting the distortion parameters to zero leads to broken screen edges (as you know). I tried fiddling with the code, but without success. Thanks in advance.


I also notice that, since I am using chromatic aberration a lot, but in this case, that can be fixed very easy, just play with the settings. ;)
Here is, everything is OK, mouse are precise and you still have CA:

#define ChromaticAmount 0.007
#define LensSize 0.5
#define LensDistortion 0.0
#define LensDistortionCubic 0.0


You still get scrambled edges whith these, and less ca off course. So it's only a workaround.
Performance wise, it would also be better to make a single ca pass. (I assume, but Marty knows this better)

Maybe a stupid question but I better ask anyway.
Is depth buffer required to work to have working AO enabled?

And how's it going with the project McFly?

Yes, without depth information you can't have working AO, DOF effects and every other depth information based shader algorithm

I think he is travelling according to what LuciferHawk said, im pretty sure he is either working on this but not saying much, or on a hiatus.
Either way as soon as he is back or rested enough, im pretty sure he will post updates.

Hey Marty, could you take a look at TiltShiftAxis in the Tilt Shift shader? It's broken. There's no way to rotate it 90° and have it centered on the screen.

@NattyDread: I can confirm. At 15-20° you can still move up the center and have a balanced effect, but at 90° it blurs out the entire screen.

That axis is not broken, it just rotates around the wrong point (and rotates outside the screen boundaries with high angles). Right now I am busy with other things inside MasterEffect but it will be fixed someday. I noticed it when implementing but thought that most people would use Tilt Shift with a horizontal axis like it's in almost every photograph that uses Tilt Shift.

Oi McFly, I think it's about time we have an old fashioned chin wag, add me to Steam - OmnipotusX

Loving your work mate, I like having everyone involved with the "SFX scene" on my friends list for quick access for discussions and praise as well as it being a super easy way to get peoples attention if something comes up :)

Hello, first post here!

I decided to try out reshade with MasterEffect package on Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;birth 1 though i've ran into weird issue.
Reshade itself works mostly fine (minus lack of depth buffer), but the ME shaders seem to darken the game significantly when it's in 3d part - even with all effects disabled.

This does not occur with SweetFX package, but again SweetFX is kind of limited in its capabilities compared to this package.
Anyone has a clue what may be causing this effect? I may add that it doesn't darken entire scene, some elements (like character faces) still show up with unaltered brightness.

Any way to add a key to enable/disable the filters the same way SweetFX does?
