    I have a 970 on a single screen and do not have PP enabled. Why? Simply because I choose to. The PP is, IMO, horribly ugly. I've tried adjusting all the options and it remains ugly, so I just don't use it. Apart from being ugly why would I want lens effects (except maybe if I was making a video)? My eyes are not cameras, they are eyes.

    Curious, are you referring to the awfully blurry appearance of the default filter when in replay/external mode?

    I'm referring to how things look when I'm driving.

    I've given up entirely on the PP effects in v1.4. In addition to the issue with extreme over exposure I also noticed that I was taking a significantly larger hit on FPS performance compared to the PP effects in v1.3. we'll see what the next patch or v1.5 will bring but I'm not wasting any more time on it. Back to driving!

    I'm using PP on high, blur off, preset S1 dynamic, exposure on 90% and it is incredibly realistic with no FPS hit!

    V1.4.1 is out now. S1-Sport is better...

    I honestly can't remember the last time i've used the pp filters that came with ac. There are mod filters out there which are miles ahead of ac's own ppfilters with the added benefit of "less performance hit"

    ...less performance hit???

    I don't have the exact numbers with me but if i get let's say 75 fps with default ac ppfilters, i get 80 fps with @ears1991 's ppfilters. And the image looks waaay better too.

    Aah, ok. Thanks...
     
  11. Dont know if it fits here or better in the general 1.4 thread. But - Barcelona with snow covered mountains? ;) (PP off, v1.41, default clear)

    Update 1.4.3 solved the exposure issue with pp-off for me. Game looks very good now with standard weather files!
    Thank you Kunos!:)

    But one problem should still be fixed:
    When pp is off, visitors/spectators are very dark...

    Is S1-Dynamic filter finetuned now? Because with v1.4.2 it was way too dark...

    It is still reallllllly dark for me. Default, expanded, photographic are those I prefer so far. For NO PP filter users tough it is much better now, but still not realistic enough. I'm working on a fine tuned set, that will also be nice with PPfilters as well.

    Nope, default/no PP filter users have a very dark screen, it's been broken since 1.4 and it's not an improvement at all ;)
    And yes, it's still broken with 1.4.3.

    S1-DYNAMIC is perfect on shadows..but it results dark at the end.. if it was a little bit brighter it can be near perfection.
    Also i like the contrast in the shadow zone and sun in this preset. I hope it will improved without losing this aspect

    You can boost exposure with page up or reduce it with page down, you will get a value that suits S1dynamic for you!

    I don't think so. I tried it and the result is bad...
