The HUD is blurred, I'm sadly thinking all blur is photoshop...

Lol, it's not photoshop, I swear ;)

The Depth of Field is added to the entire scene as a post-processing effect, so occasionally is blurs the HUD, but only when you are looking in the distance. I'm not sure how to exclude the HUD entirely...

In-game you will be able to toggle the effect on and off in real-time, or just look at something nearby to clear up the hud.

It really adds to the gameplay experience... trust me, you'll see!

I have a couple crappy vids up in my profile if you're interested....

The DOF doesn't have a clear focal point, you might want to work on that.

Thanks for the feedback. See my response to tymaxbeta's comment above for some more details on that...

Will this work for the other Half-Life 2 games as well?

I am going to release a separate version for HL2. This mod will technically 'work' with HL2, but the settings won't be quite right for that game as it runs on a different version of the Source engine.

I have a BETA demo video of the HL2 version here:
Moddb.com

The effects in the video are still in development; the final release should be a little brighter and clearer overall.

FYI, my rig is a Dell Precision M6500 Laptop, i7 720QM, 8GB Ram, NVidia QuadroFX 3800M GPU with 1GB Vram.

The GPU is not made for gaming, but it gets me by ;)

ultra looks pretty bad, like a photoshop blur on a blending mode
