Sort this out for me...is Far Cry's HDR actual HDR, or just bloom?

For all I can tell, HDR is just a overdone bloom effect.

quickly googled this, if you scoll down abit, it gets into HDR in far cry.

- I'm not sure what defines 'actual' HDR, but the effect is experimental (added in patch 1.3) and either way, it works pretty well.

Yea the bloom is a little bit over the top for my tastes

Farcry doesnt use HDR, it uses bloom. HL2: Lost Coast uses 'real' HDR. Anyway, still looks nice though.

I think you'll find (without even too much research) that farcry 1.3 hdr uses a true HDR effect while hl2 will use a 'bloom' effect instead... (though neither should be really better or worse)

Farcry has the lighting advantage, hl2 will have the speed advantage ( plus hl2 using the immitation effect will allow AA... which shall be ace ( and prolly a better compromise )

now I just gotta get a 6800... dammit

Different companies use different defintions for HDR. There is no current standard.

But if both are capable of the 'eye adjustment to light' effect then they are both HDR in my books.
