This game has a lot of potential, it's not perfect, but it could be!
The thing what really bourders me is the blur/depth of field in the game, Why is that?
It don't work at all, give me a option to turn it off, all the blur/depth of field!!
And the game looks a WHOLE lot better!!

There should be the option to turn depth blur off in the graphics options. I'll try and get you a screenshot.

That does not turn off depth blur in the replays when using tv camera view. Is there another option?

Thank you GUYS,

I know about the blur and Helmet Depth of Field, but in the replay its blur/depth of field all over the place!
Let the beauty of the graphics speak for themselves!!
It makes the game no fun/realistic to watch in the replay when you had finished a nice race!
Let the beauty of the graphics speak, remove the blur/depth of field effect also in replay!

Thanks,

Nope.

Thanks, when is that option arriving?

Yes, the Depth of Field for replays should be optional for ON/OFF and also a setting for amount of depth of field.

It double images like a 3d processor, ok for casual viewing but interferes with the clarity of the apex (low curbs)and other things. New console thing me thinks. So fresh no one really knows how to get the best from it?

Sorry, didn't see this before. As far as I know, you will not be able to disable the blur from the replay cameras. I would wager at some point, someone is going to figure out how to edit the cameras in the sim.

Turning on and using 3D Vision in NVidia control panel gets rid of DOF (along with HUD, MB and helmet).

Mmmmm intresting.

id like a slider for the depth of field in helmet view. i like it but i leave it off for now because it blurs my gauges too much.

No one will tell me where my vision is focused:) And it works exactly like in real life. When I want to quickly check the mirror or gauges I can. When I'm focused on braking I don't see them.

Nope.

High DOF hit the performance. Better we will allow to adjust the level.

What I'd like to see in replays is the depth of field as it would be on broadcast cameras. However I would guess this might be something more for Project Cars 2. It's pretty good as it is now though.

Normally for racing (and most sports broadcasting) cameras will operate with a small to medium size of aperture to maximise depth of field and thereby minimise blur in front or behind the focal point. However, zooming in or when the subject is close to the lens will naturally give a lower depth of field. In darker conditions it can be necessary to use wider apertures (lower aperture number) which gives a shorter depth of field. This is also used for creative purposes. We should certainly expect a lower depth of field (more background blur) on those shots.

Where typically wider angle shots should have no background blur (focus is effectively to infinity) that's what we should see in game. Maybe blurring what is in the far background actually helps keep the framerate higher? (edit: not the case - see Ian's comment below) There is probably too sudden a transition between in focus and out of focus as seen when the closest branches of some distant trees are obviously in focus and the next part slightly further back are very blurred. This is similar to the default blur in photo mode. It should be more graduated but that in intself may use more processing.

On a side note I like using the blur effect in helmet view. It makes me concentrate on the right thing depending on speed/danger.

Aren t these blury effects introduced for less cpu usage?

Nope, they add to GPU overhead.

this depth of filed is really so wrong in this game. when you watch replay, the cameras along the track would never have such a strong dof. one would need a super large aperture to get this effect on a camera whit such a wide angle view. nice for small scale scenes such as still lifes, close up on a car, but not those kinds of view/cameras. photography wise it is totally wrong. it would be really nice that we could disable this effect.

Maybe it will be fine tuned in Project Cars 2. Not in this version though.

I agree. PC2 needs option to turn off DOF in replays, it greatly reduces frame rate.

unfortunately still there even in pcars2
