  1. I notice that the folders with the PP filters is no longer there anymore either.
  2. This new pp filter does not seem to have such an fps effect. The previous version cost me about 40 fps. Imo none of the filters have looked very good on my system in the past but that proberly because theyve never worked well on my SLI pc.

    My system is not old/weak and still I want to turn PP off because of 3D surround.
    The fact is, that before v1.4 it looked good without PP effects. Maybe not that good as with PP on but good enough.
    Now with 1.4 it looks ugly as you can see on the screenshots from the affected people and that's not okay, no matter if one has a strong or a weak system.
    The reason are the new weatherfiles though (in my opinion)...

  4. Just tested and PP seems to eat about 40fps, which is a lot.

    Where do I check the brightness in game?

    Michael, back in the days of early acces no PP filter was really a loss. Recently and with the need to gain fps I turned it off and... well, it was not bad at all. Most effects are visible in replay only indeed. So, to help in some technical situations (3Dvision, surround, oculus, need of 60 fps for vsynch) maintaining the possibility to gain 30% fps with this option is a clever move

  7. Page up and Down for exposure or brightness

  8. Do you guys still not see brake lights when PP is disabled or has that changed?

    Am I imagine or only nvidia gfx users (not all) have PP filter problems ...

    Yes. Still no good visibility of brake lights in 1.4 with PP OFFFFF.
    And yes, the sky gamma with PP OFF is ugly.
    This all MUST be corrected by Kunos . Otherwise its a shame of devs.
    I am so tired to be a game ball in bad dev hands guys :mad:
  11. Wait, you have a 970 on one screen and don't have PP enabled? Why?

    I am using PP in my rig before 1.4. They ruined now .
    BUT . The PP off picture is MUST be ideal in gamma and break lights anyway because this is a start point of graphisc...
    PS And yes, the " Great" Kunos Default PP filter is eating 40 fps ! Did you know about that? ))) Very "good" things happens...

    For everyone who's bothered with auto exposure being a bit too erratic (in my opinion too dark in sunny weathers and too bright in cloudy weathers, kinda also dependent on fov), I made couple of tiny changes and now it looks great in all weathers. I've turned off the auto exposure and decreased the constant exposure. Now the sunny weathers look nice and bright and cloudy weathers are not overexposed.

    Problem with pp off is evident in mugello circuit where mountains turn white in the distance

    It's always about 30 fps on or off, when using ultra settings.

    For those with too bright and greenish sky when PPfilters are off, I worked on a set of clear and mid_clear weathers.

    It's not as good as with filters but still a good start for more tweaking, and to have an enjoyable visual on lower performances computers.

    I need to spend some time, I only played a bit last night but I was sleepy. I did not notice any real difference in the PP filters? Perhaps now it acts a little bit like the older "Movie" filter? Could just be a placebo on my part. But I certainly didn't notice such a difference to make it feel "worse" than it was somehow. I'll need to play a bit more. Wonder if it has to do with people's setups and we're all getting different results for some raason?

    Of course, every people has setup their monitors in different ways regarding brightness, contrast, colour settings, etc. ect.

    Yes, that is understandable, but I was talking about internal hardware (gpu sli setups, etc) rather than peripherals. For me, without changing any settings on my screens for example, it mostly feels the same.

    fov/triple screen affects how the auto exposure works. e.g. high fov or multiple monitors = more cockpit = darker image according to yebis metering of the whole image, therefore autoexposure boosts more and more so thats the main reason for such variation between systems i think.
