    Photo mode

    Anyone else noticed that the photo mode seems changed after the update? Itīs really hard to focus because there is always only a small area where you can focus and then it blurs out. Even quite hard edge between focus and blur.
    Even workling with shutter speed, focal distance etc, almost impossible to focus on a carīs whole front from half sideways or close ups are getting even harder

    You need a wider depth of field.
    Close the lens aperture, by increasing the aperture value (it should be the first slider) all the way to the right.

    I have a strange problem, but this is not related to a specific patch, with the "bokeh depth of field option", when enabled i get a white blurry line on the bottom of the screen. This almost every single time.

    The effect is used to make the background blurrier, right? Maybe the problem that it makes a "focus box" around the object you want to have sharp and not only makes the background blur but also some part before that box, if you know what I mean? Maybe the cam needs to get closer

    And that's where aperture comes in.
    The game tries to simulate a real camera, you need to close the aperture ( it must have bigger value )

    It may have something to do with the motion blur, that has been improved with the latest patch (IIRC).
    If the subject (the car) is moving when you're taking the picture, then you can adjust the last slider (it's called "tracking speed"), which controls what in photography is called "panning".
    By default it should be in the middle with a value of 0 (zero). You can change this value, both positively or negatively, to determine if the camera tracks the subject more than the background, or the background more than the subject.
    The former will result in a sharper subject and an even blurrier background, the latter the contrary, a sharper background and an even blurrier subject.

    Try that.


    EDIT: You can also try to decrease the exposure time (shutter speed). A shorter exposure time (a smaller "fractionary" value, e.g. 1/500s is smaller than 1/30s) will result in less motion blur overall.

    I don't want to open a new thread, so I'll put my question in here. Is it possible to invert the camera control in the X/Y direction (up/down)?

    The classic "invert Y axis" option like in the FPS games?
    Unfortunately no.
