Does anyone have good HDR settings for the game? I can't decide if I prefer HDR in this game or not. Right now I'm using Game HDR mode with peak brightness of 1400 and paper-white of 200. I think I got those settings on Reddit for the C9. The colors look more desaturated in HDR but the game seems to have a bit better contrast though I find the black-levels at night a bit bright.
Also played some Control with RT effects and utilizing DLSS and it looked beautiful too [IMG class=inlineimg]/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif[/IMG]
Yes. The perfect settings. Let me dig through my reddit post history and I'll report back.
It mentions specific games he said looked bad in HDR.
"Bro I'm gonna do you a solid here. HDR is tricky and white clipping on C9s can be bad. I got you.
RDR2 and MWR are easily two of the best looking HDR games on PC. I have a C9. I have spent wayyy to much time perfecting my settings lol.
In Game RDR2 settings HDR style : Game Peak brightness: 1100 Paper white : 200
For a punchy bright image....
Game Mode Oled light 100 Contrast- 95 Brightness 47 Color 70 Sharpness- 10 Contrast enhancer - medium Dynamic Tone Mapping - on Color gamut - wide White balance - warm 1 Black level - low
For a more less punchy but more natural picture (this is my favorite)...
Cinema Oled - 100 Contrast- 95 Brightness- 47 Sharpness - 10 Color - 70 Tint - 0
Dynamic contrast- low or medium Dynamic tone Mapping- on Color gamut- wide White balance- warm 3 Black level- low
Windows HDR on
NVCP - 12 bit limited 422
Give those a shot and tell me SDR looks better afterwards... lmao.
As for MW remastered you can use the same TV settings.
For the brighter game mode look set the COD HDR calibration like this..
HDR brightness: 1.00 HDR black point: .06 HDR White point: .75
For the cinema natural look...
HDR Brightness: 1.00 HDR Black Point: .08 HDR white point: .75
Should be all you need to get an absolutely amazing image.
Now AC Odyssey is just ****ed up when it comes to HDR. It is a mess. Origins is too but it is a little better. There's a trick though. Use my natural cinema color settings listed above and set the in game brightness to 20%. Yes it will **** the menus lol but the game will look better. Go to the HDR settings in the game and use... 900 peak 110 paper white.
And that's it. AC Odyssey will look like a decent HDR game (not perfect).
If you need any other advice or settings for a particular game let me know.
If a game doesnt have adjustments it's usually 1000 nits. You can still use the settings I outlined, for example madden looks great with these and I couldn't find a menu"
Try those out but I use PC mode and RGB Full now because I found a dithering software that removes all banding issues.
Nvidia CP : RGB Full 8bit
Natural looking image: (my reccomended now)
Contrast : 100
Oled light: 100
Brightness: 47 (varies game to game sometimes but I like this as a baseline)
Color : 70
Dynamic tone mapping : on
White balance : warm 3
Black level : auto
More punchy image
Mode : standard
Oled light: 100
Color temp : C10 (W20 looks better but a bit less bright. Try each.)
Dynamic tone mapping: on
Black level : auto
now. The key point for this is to go to...
Extract, open it up, go to the options up top and check "apply dithering."
I use 6 bit temporal. You can see a sample image and pick what looks best to you. Check apply on windows start up.
Boom. No more banding.
