3 comments by _NightRider_ on Nov 9th, 2013

SweetFX is a universal image improvement and tweaking mod,
that works with almost any 32bit (and hopefully soon 64bit) DirectX 9, 10 or 11 game or application.

It's goal is provide similar tools to games in realtime, as video processing software provides for movies and videos.

It runs on all Windows versions from Windows 2000 and up. Both 32bit and 64bit.
It works perfectly with all cards that can run DirectX9 games and support shader model 3. (that's all cards since the Ati Radeon X1xxx and Nvidia Geforce 6xxx series)
Some of the effects will even work on cards so old that they can only run shader model 2. (Ati Radeon 9xxx to X8xx series and the GeForce FX 5xxx series)
- there is a compability setting that enables support for these really old cards in /SweetFX/SweetFX_compatibility_settings.txt

Effects included:

* SMAA Anti-aliasing : Anti-aliases the image using the SMAA technique - see Iryoku.com
* FXAA Anti-aliasing : Anti-aliases the image using the FXAA technique - currently only work under DirectX9. Use the d3d9.dll found in \SweetFX\dlls\FXAA DX9 dll\ for this.
* Explosion : Scatters the pixels similarly to the Explosion filter in Irfanview
* Cartoon : Creates an outline-effect that makes the image look more cartoonish.
* Advanced CRT : Mimics the look of an old arcade CRT display.
* LumaSharpen : Sharpens the image, making details easier to see
* Bloom : Makes strong lights bleed their light into their surroundings
* HDR : Mimics an HDR tonemapped look
* Levels : Sets a new black and white point. A fast and easy way to increase contrast but it causes clipping. The Curves effect does this in a more subtle way without causing clipping.
* Technicolor : Makes the image look like it was processed using a three-strip Technicolor process - see En.wikipedia.org
* Cineon DPX : Makes the image look like it was converted from film to Cineon DPX. Can be used to create a "sunny" look.
* Monochrome : Removes colors from the image so it appears as if shot on black and white film.
* Lift Gamma Gain : Adjust brightness and color of shadows, midtones and highlights (and typically does it better then the Tonemap effect)
* Tonemap : Adjust gamma, exposure, saturation, bleach and defog. (may cause clipping)
* Vibrance : Intelligently saturates (or desaturates if you use negative values) the pixels depending on their original saturation.
* Curves : Contrast adjustments using S-curves - without causing clipping.
* Sepia : Sepia tones the image - see En.wikipedia.org
* Vignette : Darkens the edges of the image to make it look more like it was shot with a camera lens. - see En.wikipedia.org )
* Dither : Applies dithering to simulate more colors than your monitor can display. This lessens banding artifacts - see En.wikipedia.org )
* Border : Makes the screenedge black as a workaround for the bright edge that forcing some AA modes sometimes causes.
* Splitscreen : Enables the before-and-after splitscreen comparison mode.

Hey! I've seen some posts which contained words like "upload" and "Over 8gb, unpacked", however no news has been posted about any close arrival of the mod (or I am missing something extremely important). Go on, shatter my hopes and dreams :). Or share any news on mod status, please. Thanks in advance.

nightrider, your more recent screenshots greatly differ from your past screenshots. They all seem to be very bright sky with hazy atmosphere, much different from your earlier screenshots which looked more darker in atmosphere. Is this the look you are switching to?
