When editing pictures on Instagram, VSCO, and other social media platforms, users have the option to apply filters to their pictures to add a different effect to them. Nvidia is looking at doing the same thing with their new features called Freestyle.
Nvidia Freestyle is apart of the company’s GeForce Experience software. There are 15 filters to choose from, with 38 different settings, hues and effects to choose from, which can be added as an overlay to the game footage. Currently, Freestyle is in beta development, with support for one hundred games such as Battlefield 3, Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Assassin’s Creed, World of Warcraft: Legion, and Diablo III, just to name a few.
Color, saturation, and filters can all be applied in the in-game menu. According to a blog post by Nvidia “You can create a retro-war themed filter for your favorite FPS, or enhance color and contrast to make a game look more photorealistic,” There is also a night mode that reduces blue colors, and even a mode to help colorblind players tell the difference between colors.
Nvidia Freestyle is currently available to try out now in beta mode. No idea as to when it will be out of beta, however.
