Hodilton made a new video about the final version!
Copy video URL and watch in fullscreen 1440p - very nice video Hodilton, thanks.







FEATURES
• Entirely new enbeffect.fx, enbbloom.fx and effect.txt file created by me
• Advanced enbbloom.fx shader based on depth information, feature of ENB binary 254+ (required!) released after 2 May 2014
• HSL Color Effects (color space modifications - color channel isolation)
• Advanced tonemapping (Filmic S-curve)
• Full control of: Skyrim: Image Space settings
• ENB: Saturation, contrast, brightness, vibrance, intensities, RGB balance, etc. From within shader menu
• Many different color techniques available including Sepia, Technicolor, Split Tone, B&W
• Supersampling SSAO/SSIL with optimized settings
• SweetFX SMAA
• Tweaked enbeffectprepass by gp65cj04



I suggest GTX660 or better, GTX770 Recommended.

Note #1: This ENB in the base uploaded form is very respectful to the vanilla game look ( see it as "lore-friendly" ).
However the options available in the shader menu of ENB will allow you to make the game look however "interesting" you prefer.

Note #2: My author screenshot aren't all taken with the default settings.


INSTALLATION
Like any other ENB; remove all previous files/folders of any other ENB you might of had (all of it!)
Install using NMM (or manual) and inside the Data folder you will find a folder called [ Serenity ENB ].
Copy the contents of that folder into the Skyrim folder where TESV.exe is located.

When that is done visit ENB download page HERE and get the latest Binary.
Copy d3d9.dll from the Wrapper folder into your Skyrim folder.

INCOMPATIBLE MODS
• Ningheim Racemod is incompatible with TimeOfDay enabled ENB's (any ENB) unless you install the optional "The Ningheim Race - Scripts Update".
• Climates of Tamriel and other Weather mods (also mods that add new weathers / change vanilla weathers, like
Expanded Snow systems, Volumetric Fog, etc), but see a bit lower for COT
• Realistic Lighting Overhaul and other Interior Lighting mods
(they may be compatible when you leave ELE loaded after it, but I haven't tested that)

CLIMATES OF TAMRIEL
I done some testing, and when used together with my Weather Patch for CoT, this ENB is somewhat compatible with COT. Some minor tweaks under SKY and RAYS / VOLUMETRICRAYS / PROCEDURALSUN may be required. For the rest should work out of the box but won't represent the intended look. Likely the same goes for Pure Weather, though I have never tested it.
