UPDATE 31/12/23 – Fixed some minor lighting and debanding issues, please redownload if need be!
Thank you very much for trying my presets out! This preset pack contains a set of 8 presets with Immerse compatibility, I wanted to try a more simple pack with the aim of creating versatile presets that can be used wherever you like for clean 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 shader toggles included depending on the mood for your photo!
Please note they will appear different according to the weather, time and location of your photo. I encourage adjusting and toggling different shaders such as the bloom, ambient light etc on and off as needed and adjusting them to suit! For my preview photos, I differentiated between cloudy, fair skies and clear skies weather in the morning or midday and fog for an example.
I have made these and taken the photo outside The Studium in Old Sharlayan, do try them in any other area you see fit!
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.
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 warm, neutral, cold, vibrant and desaturated:
At Dusk – pink toned
Beautiful Day – slightly warm
Clouded – desaturated
Golden Hour – bright and warm, sepia toned
Good Afternoon – simple and vibrant
Ice Cold – cool and desaturated
Lush – simple and slightly lighter
Pleasant Morning – cool toned
Rolling Hills – vibrant and brings out any green tones
Simple Times – a base, vanilla shader
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 guide in my master folder and the sub folders on how install and use immerse and photos depicting an example of the toggles.
Thank you once again! Please enjoy and 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 to my page. I ask that people are honest if people ask what preset is used as it helps people find things easier.
