Customization


The following are some of the adjustable settings in the ENB GUI which opens by pressing Enter key while holding Shift key.
The GUI hotkey may differ depending on the [INPUT] settings in the enblocal.ini.

EFFECT.TXT

[Utility]
< Show Grids >
Displays the specified size of grids on the screen.
The grids can be used as a rule of thirds guide for screenshooting, or a guide for checking face/body proportions in character creation etc.
The grid height and width can also be adjusted by using the letter box effect.


[LUT Color Grading]

Applies the selected LUT in the enblut folder to instantly change the look of the screen.
The LUT options can be accessed from the EFFECT.TXT tab unlike presets that use the drop down menu in the ENBEFFECT.FX.

To use your custom LUTs, rename them to "1" -- "12" and replace the existing files in the "enbseries\enblut" folder.
Supported LUT sizes are 256 x 16, 1024 x 32, or 4096 x 64. The LUT size option can be changed in the GUI.
Supported formats are PNG or BMP. The format option can be changed by editing "#define LUT_FORMAT" in the effect.txt.

To share or create your own LUT pack, simply copy the enblut folder and compress it into an archive.
You can also display description of your LUTs in the GUI by editing the enblut.fx file.

LUT packs and Neutral LUT PNG files can be downloaded from the Optional/Miscellaneous Files section.

[Pxelation]

Pixelates the specified area of the screen.
< Low Bit Game Effect / Censored Effect >


[SMAA]
Enables SMAA Anti-Aliasing with the selected quality preset. 0 (Low), 1 (Medium), 2 (High), 3 (Ultra), 4 (Custom)
< SMAA Settings - Preset Comparison >

Multiple lens dirt textures are available by uncommenting "#define MULTIPLE_DIRT" in the enblens.fx.

< Fiber and Scratches / Water Spots / Bokeh Particles >


[Weather FX]
Adds animated rain droplets and frost effect on the screen when it's raining or snowing.
This effect is disabled by default and can be enabled by uncommenting "#define ENABLE_WEATHER_FX" in the enblens.fx.

< Droplet Effect / Frost Effect >


ENBEFFECTPREPASS.FX

[Toon Shader]
