Tip on using the new nVidia Sharpening feature and xVision..

Recommended Posts

You need to turn off the two Sharpening locations, within any xVision script.  One is located under Post Process, and the other is under Water...make sure you un-check them, for if you don't, they will conflict with nVidia's Sharpening filter.  Some people are not even aware that the scripts page has two sharpening boxes...and the amount you can set, (off-set) them to.   Again...turn them off...and then run Xplane only with the nVidia Sharpening filter...

I assume this is not necessary if you leave the default sharpening setting at OFF in the Nvidia Control panel?

Right...it's (with the use of an xVision Script...) one or the other.  If you don't have the nVidia  as 'set'...no worries.  They just can't compete and/or defeat each other (xVision active script and nVidia Sharpening set to 'on/active') for that filter element.

Am curious to hear how others experience this new NVidia feature in X-Plane. Untested by me so far, since I was under the impression that it would not work in the simulator...

Fantastic...the clearest video content, ever!  I have xVision running with it...and of course, have the two xVision script SHARPENING locations, un-boxed.

Sharpening within X-Vision is more efficient in my opinion, it tweaks the x-plane shaders directly as opposed to the whole image with Nvidia

You can run both, they don't conflict but you might end up with images being oversharpened causing a lot of shimmering

Under 'SHADERS', one is under 'Global Post Processing' - sharpening/blurring and the other is under 'FXAA tuning'.

Yes, correct...and one must remember to SAVE the modified script, after you un-check the two boxes.

Thanks! No box seen under FXAA tuning, but assume we just set Sharpness to 0.00.
 

It's under Water...(I imagine it controls the glimmer of the sun on water bodies,..there is one box to turn off--Sharpening

This new feature, for me, is of little use, mainly because the latest Nvidia driver (441) also introduced excessive stutters. I rolled back to 419.67. XVision's sharpening is, if anything, more effective, IMHO.
