Thought it'd be a good idea to publish my own post-processing preset for people to try.
It incorporates fairly minimal changes for a clearer and more realistic looking image with no further 3rd party tools required. It attempts to eliminate issues with 1st/3rd person camera auto-exposure, DoF bleeding, glare and chromatic aberration, and can also give a small performance boost over default presets. 0.3 includes two presets:
- 0_BlackPearl.ini for in-game sessions
- 0_BlackPearl_Previews.ini, adjusted for creating previews in dark showrooms with the Kunos ksPreviewBuilder tool
Unpack the downloaded 7zip archive and move the .ini files to ...\assettocorsa\system\cfg\ppfilters and select the preset in-game through the graphics settings or post-processing app.
Note that this mod is made for the default 100% exposure and 100% saturation in the Assetto Corsa video settings, so you can adjust it that way to your liking. Ctrl+Shift+ +/- adjusts saturation and page up/down adjusts exposure while in a session.
Please keep in mind that this preset makes no changes to the weathers. For improvements to the weathers I'd recommend taking a look at this mod:
Together with Content Manager a must-have weather mod that I can't recommend enough.
I also highly recommend this mod for a much improved windshield damage texture:
- 2016-08-08 - 0.1
- 2016-08-13 - 0.2; added 0_BlackPearl_Alternative.ini and 0_BlackPearl_Previews.ini
- 2017-05-27 - 0.3; streamlined 0_BlackPearl and 0_BlackPearl_Alternative into one, adjusted auto exposure once again for changes from AC1.8-1.14 (reducing auto-adjusting when changing cameras/views), adjusted DoF, colours and saturation slightly. Previews preset remains unchanged.
