Nvidia brings out the photographer in you with its new photo tool. Jen-Hsun Huang, the CEO of Nvidia, has recently introduced gamers to Ansel, a new in-game camera system. The software will help gamers capture screenshots at a higher resolution and overcome camera angle restrictions.
It looks like Nvidia is set on gaining more consumers, as it searches for more ways to attract gamers. For those passionate about taking screenshots of their in-game moments, this is a great tool. Named after one of the world’s greatest photographers, Ansel Adams, it sets the bar up high for other game providers.
Here are some of the great things you can do with the help of Ansel:
- Free camera. You can go wherever you want for that perfect screenshot, with its new zoom, reposition and roll functions.
- Great resolution. You can now capture images at a 4.5 gigapixel resolution. And you can save them in just a few seconds, thanks to NVIDIA GeForce GTX GPU. This will help you get great material for prints or desktop wallpapers.
- If you want to modify the screenshot, Ansel has some aces up his sleeve. You can modify the brightness, enhance color, sketch it, create a vignette look and the list can go on. There are many effects to choose from if you’re feeling artistic.
- OpenEXR Capture. You can export the images in OpenEXR format, making it possible to view your work at the highest fidelity.
- 360-degree Capture. If you’re into panoramic shots, you’ll be happy to know that you can now capture your in-game screenshots this way too. You can then view your work in Google Cardboard, on a VR headset or on a computer.
If confused about how to use all these goodies, you should know that in-game support for Ansel will soon be available. Some of the features will be included in the game’s Photo Mode, while others can only be accessed through console commands. To make use of Ansel, you have to own a Nvidia GPU, from GeForce GTX 650 to newer models.
The release date isn’t set yet but don’t you worry, it won’t be too long now. Nvidia brings out the photographer in you so make good use of the new artistic tool.
