My new 4.1 preset makes use of the new 2.60 features that Matt has added.

He has done a great job.

You’re welcome.

With this preset the lighting and colors of ground and clouds are depending on time of day , altitude and preciptation.

Bloom has different strength depending on time of day.

Haze and raleigh scattering already were depending on attitude.

regards, Gerard

Version PTA-Saldo 4_1 v1 Vis 125 was without post processing and is for general use.

The new Version PTA-Saldo 4_1 v2 Vis 125 is with post processing. This is the look through the cockpit window version , which looks like the one for V3 , but with small improvements.

Here how it looks :

Hey Gerald -- thanks for the work! To a newbie in the shader arena what does "Post Processing" mean? Does that mean the output of PTA goes to the input of another program for further modification? Which program would that be?

Have a great weekend!

Postprocessing , in our case , video postprocessing is used for quality-improvement image processing(specifically digital image processing). It is done on playback after the decoding proces.

Things like brightness and contrast are done before playback ; postprocessing is done when the image that is going to be sent to your monitor is already rendered and ready to be displayed. So afterwards.

Gerard,

Does this mean that one who wants to use your preset has to do the postprocessing on his machine as well after applying your preset?

Hello Hans,

PTA has to ability to include postprocessing settings . See them at the bottom of the settings.

My V2 preset has them included, so it’s ready for use.

Hi Gerard, do the post-processing settings negatively influcene FPS / performance?

Not on my pc ( 5820k @ 4.3 Ghz / 2666 mhz Memory / 1080 Ti OC )

But you can try V1 and then V2 to see if it makes a difference on your system.

Before changing a preset always first restore the default Shaders ( with PTA )

Good luck !

Gerard

My v2 preset has been updated as P3D v.1 is slightly different in shaders as v4 :

- bloom adjusted for better effect at dawn-dusk / day / night

- object lighting modified to make it look the same as in P3DV4.0
