Learn How To Add ReShade Filters To GeForce Experience!

Contents

With the introduction of the GeForce GTX SUPER graphics cards, NVIDIA also announced the GeForce Experience will now officially support ReShade filters!

Here is our guide on how to leverage this new feature to easily add and apply ReShade filters using GeForce Experience!

 

What Is ReShade?

ReShade is a post-processing graphics tool that allows you to tweak the colour and lighting of your games on-the-fly. It offers you an automated and generic way to change how your games look.

You can add advanced SMAA anti-aliasing, screen space ambient occlusion, depth-of-field effects, dynamic film grain, automatic saturation and colour correction, etc.

ReShade basically transforms the game’s look and feel, using a wide variety of filters.

GeForce Experience Now Supports ReShade

NVIDIA is now adding official ReShade support to GeForce Experience. This makes it much easier for NVIDIA users to use ReShade filters in their games.

Typically, ReShade has to be “injected” and installed for each game. But now, you can use GeForce Experience to add your favourite ReShade filters once, and apply them to over 650 games!

 

ReShade Restrictions In GeForce Experience

To avoid the misuse of ReShade filters by game cheats, NVIDIA is restricting certain ReShade filters in competitive games :

  • Freestyle : The original 14 filters included in the Game Ready Driver are supported for all games. The officially supported ReShade filters are available on non-competitive games, but only a subset are available on competitive games. Custom ReShade filters are available on non-competitive games, but not available on competitive games.

  • Ansel : With developer integrated Ansel titles in which the game is paused, users are able to use all ReShade filters. For non-developer integrated Ansel titles, we offer support for over 30 filters.

The NVIDIA ReShade Filter Collection

To help get you started, NVIDIA is providing a collection of curated ReShade filters, which includes two new filters they created with ReShade filter author Pascal Gilcher :

  • Posterize : Adds a pop-art effect, and reduces the image to 4 colours
  • Retro Neon : Uses the game’s depth to create a cool sci-fi effect
