Kinematic Reshade offers some changes in the visual section of the game so that you can enjoy a more realistic and pleasant experience in your travels.
It reduces the fogging and blurring effect of the game, increases the contrast between light and shadow and balances the colour for a more natural feel. In addition, the subtle use of chromatic aberration takes the level of detail to another level, both day and night.

Details and more information in the official website

PLEASE, VERY IMPORTANT IN 1.12...

This new update works on a newly compiled version of shaders, which are not yet included in the ReShade repository. In order for the preset to work properly, you need to copy the "shaders" folder included in the download to the internal directory of Euro Truck Simulator 2, "bin\win_x64\reshade-shaders", so that you can overwrite the files when your operating system asks for them.

If you have never used Kinematic, before doing the previous step it is necessary to follow the Installation instructions.

Now everyone wants to be Kinematic... Reject imitations!

- Only use 3 shaders to not overload your computer
- Just improve what the game needs... simple
- More natural illumination and color, with greater sharpness and complete white balance

INGAME SETTINGS

- Brightness:

Image

- High Dynamic Range: Yes
- Deph of Field: Yes
- Sunshafts: Yes
- Color correction: Yes

RECOMENDATIONS

- It is very important not to change the order of the shaders from the tool menu, as some effects could overlap others and ruin the experience. The order, from top to bottom, should be as follows: AmbientLight, ADOF, LumaSharpen y Lightroom. Additionally, checking the performance mode box is also highly recommended.

- It is highly recommended that you open the "config.cfg" file in the folder that the game has created under "Documents", find the entry "uset g_bloom "1.0" and change it to "uset g_bloom "0". This will remove the glow effect produced by the lights if you don't use any mods that do.

- Remember to turn off the night light in Windows 10 , if you use this feature, if you play at night to avoid a change in the color tone.

- Kinematic Reshade Reborn might not offer the same experience when used with projects like JBX Graphics or Naturalux for modifying colors and intensity.

- Do not use oversaturated or overdefined monitor profiles, use a standard mode, which is generally the default mode on most monitors.

Everyone has their taste in realism.. No colors at all. Everything is too white. Last time I checked grass is green and not light green. But as I said everyone has right to have an opinion.

Ok so I got it going and tested it and I have to say UNREAL.... or should I say REAL... game looks real now, before buildings looked computerish if you know what I mean. but i found it a bit dark and slightly too colourless so I did turn on color correction and put the brightness up slightly.... LOVE IT! THANK YOU!

EDIT ----- I was seeing a glow effect so I turned off HDR and Color Correction and I think its the best it has looked so far.

Well, the brightness theme, I guess, depends on each monitor. Many monitors nowadays bring internet/game presets that modify their color temperature, brightness and contrast.

However, this reshade greatly increases the brightness, especially at dawn and dusk, with the idea that the sun dazzles.

It is also designed to be played with "Realistic Graphics Mod" and "Project Next-Gen Graphic Mod" for a better graphical experience.
