☾ Shadowsong - For Screenshots/Portraits

Created by NightmareCandle
Added Feb. 6, 2018
Updated 9 Feb 19:17 CET
Shader used: ReShade
Preset description:
"Shadowsong" is my screenshot preset. It's been heavily tweaked to work both day and night and in as many different lightings as I could think of, and will probably be further modified in the future. I set the MXAO to be similar in power to Stormshade's, and modified the colors/contrast to my tastes. If your tastes are similar, great! If they aren't quite, turn something off or modify it.
This was created with Reshade 3.1.1. First time users: Install from reshade.me, drop my preset into your install folder (it should be in the same place as your .exe), launch the game, press Shift+F2 to open the overlay, toddle through the introduction tutorial, and then select the preset with the dropdown box at the top. Once you are happy with your settings, click over to the Settings tab of Reshade and enable Performance Mode.
If you need help or are having issues, please PM me on reddit - /u/nightmarecandle. This is not a preset you can leave on; effects like MXAO and Depth of Field will heavily alter your UI, and make them impossible or ugly to use. For an always-on play preset, you can try my ☼ No More Washed Out Colors for Final Fantasy XIV ARR. Enabled shaders: Colourfulness, Levels, Tonemap, Vibrance, MXAO, DPX, Clarity, HDR (FakeHDR), AdaptiveFog, AmbientLight, AdaptiveSharpen, Bloom, MartyMcFlyDOF, SMAA. DPX shader customization: This shader is highly customizable and, in my opinion, adds a lot of beauty to screenshots. However, in certain situations it can blow out certain colors. You can either turn it off, or adjust the strength or RGB settings when necessary; I do the latter. I have attempted to set them to a "neutral" setting, leaning a bit towards red, for this preset. I need to adjust the yellows a bit; I got it to look nice everywhere EXCEPT Gyr Abania, where it turns bright mustard yellow during the day.
