I always wondered why after I switched to Nvidia from my ATI card my colors didn't seem as vibrant.

Well I was messing around in my Nvidia settings when I noticed a slider under the color correction called "Digital Vibrance".

The slider was defaulted at off, so I moved it up a notch to low and WOW. Everything is brighter and the colors are much much better.

I'm not sure how many people knew about this feature and I'm sorry if it's common knowledge and I just missed the boat somehow, but my card feels newer now. Just thought I'd pass on the tip.

Digital Vibrance is mainly for users with TFT screens as colours tend to be a little less bright on them or for vidcards which don't have a very good colour set.
If I turn on DV on my CRT monitor and v8420 vidcard I am looking at a radioactive computer environment. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

But yes, in some cases you can spice up your digital world! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Thanks for the heads up. I have a decent TFT screen and already applied your suggestion. I'll fly for a few hours later tonight and post my results also.

I don't like it. It feels like it's burning my eyeballs out!

I guess I should also say that I am using a 6800GT with the 71.20 drivers. I agree that if you set the DV too high it looks radioactive, but with my driver set you are able to increase the DV very slightly if you want.

Made a huge difference for me.

I wish you could save digital vibrance settings into the game "profiles" along with AA and AF settings. I like the look of DV in games it really looks great, but for Photoshop I fear that I'll be missing something by stretching the saturation.

I did try this once, but after a while I felt the more `muted` colours were realistic. The only thing I`ve ever seen look so colourful and bright in the real world was a Kingfisher along the canal one day...

It's made a difference with my GF2MX400. So far I set it to low. Will try other settings later. Thanks for the tip, Owlsphone.http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Just make sure you did it for desktop and 3D, or you won't see it when IL 2 launches.

A low setting looks good in the Pacific sun. Seems a little too bright in most Europe.

Great find. I like it.

OT question though, I have always wondered what anisotropic settings are. Can anyone fill me in on this? I have an nvidia GeForce4 Ti 4600 card. What should I have this set to?

I have followed your tip and its great.
I also gave this tip to other java members
of our group.

I love this tip it looks like I have a
new pc/sim. I do use a tft screen and the
world is much better now.

Thanks again!!!

Yes,I've been using the Digital Vibrance parameter since I first noticed it a year ago.I thought that it might make my card run slower or that I might take a fps hit by using it,but everything runs as smooth with as without.I use it at one notch and it makes everything prettier.
