Hey all, in older versions of ReShade there was a cool shader I liked to use in my sci-fi presets that gave a neat looking horizontal lens flare. It looked like something you might expect to see in an old Jim Cameron movie like Aliens or Terminator 2. Does the latest ReShade have anything like that? I haven't found anything like it so far.
Can't wait to check out the ported shaders, @QTmodz!
@phroZac And you may be talking about the anam flare in the bloom shader. They look like this when configured properly, is this what you mean? (this is the standard Bloom shader with very tweaked settings of course) The second set of pics shows it.
@QTmodz & AssassinsDecree - Thanks for the help guys! However I can't get either to work as I want. I'm having two issues:
1: The radial sunflare in the middle is unnecessary. All I need is the horizontal flare. Is it as easy as finding the corresponding sunflare texture and deleting it?
2. The intensity of the anamflare is too strong, even at minimal settings. It's probably user error on my part. I only enable the anamflare in the shader options. Does it require other options to be enabled in order to lessen the intensity?
Thanks in advance for any more advice you may have!
Sorry I'm responding to this so late. The problem with the bEnableAnamFlare is somehow caused by insane default values in a lower section. These are my settings that give a neatural white flare color and allow the actual color settings under bEnableAnamFlare to make a difference. Otherwise I just got bright blue flares that would never go away no matter what settings I changed.
Thanks for the help, AD!
I wish we had more control over what flares though. Any bright highlight will give off a flare in some games, when I only want sources of light to flare. Urrrg. Though I'm not sure if that's even possible with post proc injection.
There is a small way to really lessing this.
Get a neutral lut open it in camera raw, go to the color settings
Lower the luminosity of the main colors
then use select color filter and make the whites a little gray
