In addition to the unique image enhancement algorithm, Beautify also includes the following high-quality and performant extra effects (combined in the same render pass for superior performance):
• Sun Lens Flares. Fast GPU flares with diffraction ghosts, halo and animated Sun rays.
• Purkinje. Simulates retina achromatic vision plus blue spectrum shift under low light conditions.
• Outline. Adds a colored border around objects. Depth or Color (Sobel) based modes (good for 2D).
• Daltonize. Intensifies pure red, green and blue basic colors.
• Depth of Field with Bokeh. A classic photographic effect, smoothly blurs the image based on distance to focus point with autofocus and hexagonal highlights options. Supports transparent objects and exclusion layers. Includes many advanced options like foreground blur, autofocus, custom focus distance, target follow, etc.
• Anamorphic Flares. Also known as JJ Abrams flares, they add a truly cinematic touch to your scene.
• ACES Tonemapping. Approximates Academy Color Encoding System transform from HDR color space into LDR at the appropriate stage within Beautify effect chain.
• Bloom. Beautiful and smooth glow effect with many effect customization options, selective layer, depth attenuation, …
• Lens Dirt. Spreads the light on the screen when looking to bright sources according to different customizable patterns and spread ratios.
• Eye Adaptation. Reproduces retina reaction to quick changes in scene luminance with separate options for light and dark adaptation.
• Vignetting. Darkens image corners with intensity, color and mask options. Now with Fade Out and Blink effects, cool for transitions and immersive eye effects.
• Frame. Adds a colored or texture-based rectangular frame.
• LUT Color Transformation. Apply your favourite LUT (Look-Up Textures).
• Night Vision. Visualize objects in the scene in the dark. Includes noise and scan lines.
• Thermal Vision. Uses a red-blue spectrum to highlight warm and cold colors. Also adds scan lines, noise and a subtle screen distortion.
• Pixelate. Create a retro pixelated effect.
• Blur. Add a background blur effect with customizable intensity.
Beautify is very easy to use, just add the image effect to your camera, choose a preset and that’s all. It also allows you to fine-tune every effect, disable unused shader features automatically for you to save build time and store your favourite effect settings in different Profiles!
5 demo scenes are included to demonstrate the different presets and their effects.
