Realistic ESO v2.1

Created by Kazox
Added April 18, 2014
Shader used: SweetFX 1.4
Preset description:
Important, I have updated v2 to v2.1 as of 04/18/2014 9:10 am EST. If you downloaded v2, you should definitely get v2.1, the difference is quite significant. My objective was to try and keep the effects similar to Sekta’s Perfection! (Which was quite perfect) but give it a different tone. I wanted to set a darker mood to the game by lowering the brightness of the color without losing lighting and keeping a nice contrast with the shadows. Colors look vivid in the dark and during the day they’re a bit faded, just how I like it. It gives that noir look to the game =) Things that changed between the original version and v2.1: o Added Vignette - Adds a shading effect to the edges of the screen. It’s very subtle but set “define USE_VIGNETTE” to 0 if you dislike it. I like the effect, as long as it’s not too strong… o Changed Lift Gamma Gain - This is the (real) secret ingredient to darker shadows and tones. It adds a very nice effect. o Changed HDR - Small adjustments o Changed DPX - Faded colors as much as I could before objects started to become dull - By adding more contrast, colors now look more vivid in the dark. Dungeons look creepier, which is always welcome in Elder Scrolls =) o Changed Curves - Added (a lot) more contrast I didn’t plan on changing anything after v2, but I notice that Levels and Chromatic Aberration were just garbage from an old config for GW2. I hope you enjoy it and like I mentioned in my original version, if you choose to use these presets do so at your own risk. Credits to original creators added to my original version: http://sfx.thelazy.net/games/preset/1544/ PS: I just forgot to mention on my original version that you need to follow these steps to make SweetFX work with ESO: http://www.reddit.com/r/elderscrollsonline/comments/1zd49b/eso_sweetfx_you Thanks and have fun!

The sharpen settings in this preset aren't very good so you will get heavy aliasing and haloing, reduce the clamp down to >0.035 and increase the strength to compensate for loss of sharpness.

also i notice very heavy aliasing even when i enable in game AA with this preset. any ideas? thinking of just playing at 2k and downsampling to 1080 to fix this :)

is it a good idea to have AO enabled from in game when using presets?

Hey Sekta, levels and chromatic weren't working. These were garbage from the version I was using with GW2. I have removed it and updated the preset settings. RGB vibrance seems to be working fine. Spent several hours tweaking and testing it in different environments (snow, desert, indoors, night, day...) and I think v2.1 looks a lot better. I loved your presets for Perfection! and I just thought I'd try to lower the brightness of the color without losing lighting while keeping a nice contrast with the shadows. I hope folks like the effect as much as I did =)

Oh yeah some things I learnt: HDR radius2 below 0.80 produces aliasing and so does a high sharpen clamp. You have a really nice preset but those 2 things ca be improved. Also would like to know what custom sweetfx version you got because I really want the levels shader :)

How did you get individual RGB vibrance and chromatic aberration in radeonpro? I thought it only supported 1.4.
