UPDATE 12/11/23 A few textures were missing from the pack, please redownload if need be! Thank you to those who informed me.
Thank you very much for trying my presets out! This preset pack contains a set of 8 presets with Immerse compatibility inspired by one the greatest websites created; Blingee, the focus of this pack is some fun glitter stagedepth that can be utilised for different types of photos!
These have been made in Gshade. If you are having any problems with them in Reshade, please let me know and I will do my best to pinpoint the issue.
These work outdoors, indoors and in the studio at varying times of the day and have been tested on a variety of skintones. Please turn off the ingame DOF and adjust the manual brightness as needed! I am using RTGI for my previews and no post processing. I heavily encourage adjusting and playing around with the different bloom toggles included and adjusting the unique ADOF depending on the mood for your photo!
Please note this lot of preview photos have either border, magic border and the glitter stagedepth on to showcase these features. I have included extra previews in the folder of how these look without the glitter stagedepth on.
Please note they will appear different according to the weather, time and location of your photo. I encourage adjusting and toggling GAUSSIAN and bloom on and off as needed and adjusting them to suit! For my preview photos, I differentiated between cloudy, fair skies, clear skies and fog weather in the morning or midday.
These come with unique textures too, please ensure they are installed in the: C:\Program Files (x86)\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY XIV – A Realm Reborn\game\gshade-shaders\Textures folder to use. For reshade, the path is the same, but reshade.
If using the latest GSHADE, the path is different to prevent loss with the update; gshade custom shaders > shaders. Same with custom textures; gshade custom shaders > textures. this has been added to the guide for new gshade users.
There are also some tips in the folder on using StageDepth shaders and installing immerse.
Presets included, aesthetics and colouring vary from vibrant, pastel, cool and desaturated:
Supa Dupa Diva
All frame textures drawn by myself Overlays are free for public use stock images from freepik and pexel respectively. I have included extra ones I did not end up using too if you want to switch it up!
I have added some keybinds to my presets to easily toggle on and off during gposing! I have included screenshots of this in the tips folder.
It is important to note that if you are using the old GSHADE the numbered stagedepth and layer shaders (stagedepth2, layer2 etc) may not work as intended. To fix this, you will need to manually type in the name of the included textures and save it. I have included a screenshot on how to do that.
Please note you must have immerse installed for the updates, original shader toggles have been kept intact as another option! You can find Immerse here: https://github.com/martymcmodding/iMMERSE
There is also a visual and text guide in my master folder and the sub folders on how install and use immerse as well (stagedepth is how you get the frame behind the character)
I have twitter thread on how to use stagedepth if you are in need of any pointers: https://x.com/kamuidrome_/status/1710813671814057989?s=20
If there is something amiss or you have a question, do not hesitate to reach out and I’ll do my best to help
If you are that way inclined to use hashtags when posting pictures, #Elvashade or #Elvashaders will suffice! It brings me joy seeing people enjoy what I make!
I am lax about this stuff. You can share these with friends, edit them for your personal use etc just don’t upload as your own and don’t sell them for monetary gain. If someone asks for them, you are free to share them or redirect them to my page. Should my presets be posted in any WCIF server or channel. Be honest please it helps people find things easier! Do not say they are ‘private’.
