Become a video game photographer with Ansel

first_imgEveryone’s talking about Nvidia’s elite new graphics card that was announced this past weekend, the GTX1080. The company also announced a new software that will make playing with that graphics card all the more fun. Take a look at Ansel, a free-movement photography software that allows you to take sweeping landscapes and portraits of your favorite scenes in video games, and save them as digital photos. Named in honor of Ansel Adams, the landscape photographer from the 20th century, the software is more than just about taking screenshots.Until now, you could really only take a photo from the angle that your game allowed. Sometimes that means head on,or through your characters POV, or maybe even of the back of the head. Ansel gives you complete free range of motion with your “camera” to take a shot from any angle in the game. Imagine getting that killing blow from the ground up, or an overhead shot as you land that kick to the face caught in one perfect frame.You can also save your screenshots at a resolution of up to 61,000 pixels. Yeah that’s a 2,000MP photo — a far cry from those 2MP digital cameras we had in the early 2000s. And to take full advantage of that resolution (because why not), you’re able to export the file in OpenEXR, which is essentially the RAW format of screenshots. It gives you a complete, full dynamic range of editing capabilities in Photoshop. The images you can create with this are some real next level photography. Imagine the virtual galleries that you could showcase them in!Of course, Ansel comes with its own onboard editing tools. You can adjust brightness, add a vignette, enhance the color, roll the camera, add special effects. Pretty cool for the amateur video game photographer in you. Or imagine what professional screen shot photographers will be able to do once they get their hands on this! Because yeah, they are a thing.Nvidia has also included a 360 capture, so you can then put it on your VR headset of choice and look around the world you just played in. Okay, that’s a bit gimmicky and probably fun for all of two minutes, but hey, what a two minutes!The whole software may seem a bit of marketing shtick, but for the people who really enjoy creating images on this level, this is a game changer.last_img read more
