I think this thread is dead. So we have to get along with it..
I like the bloom on lenses etc for realism, but the depth of field blur at edges annoys.. i'd like to have a TINY bit encircling the edges, only the EDGES of our RECTANGULAR or SQUARE monitors.. as our eyes see ROUND/OVAL CIRCLES! So the blurring/depth of field in REALITY is occuring in areas NOT seen on a rectangular monitor - mostly..
So for realism , the only the four corners of the monitor would have a small blur to them, in an oval shape (just imagine an 'eye' shaped monitor, then put blur as a border, then superimpose a smaller rectangle inside, and you see how only the edges of the rectangle would have blur in them.
Sorry about this, not sure if this helps, but I have spent most of my life thinking of ways to further enhance military/human simulations to more accurately reflect human conditions - as well as further interfaces we might possibly use.
I can't WAIT for the augmented reality version of Arma!!
I cannot stand the blur either, it makes me sick...literally. I turned off PP effects in game and in Nvidia control panel under ArmA2 & OA program settings put Ambient Occlusion to Quality.
I freaking love this game!!!
link for it.
Although it doesn't handle the exact problem we're discussing about, at least it describes the main problem of this setting.
Thanks Willa. Just replied to the ticket with this:
Please give us seperate options for that. When looking at the feedback from thread "ARMA 2 OA: Post Process Settings Decoded" you see most people are not happy with the blur:
Almost everybody will have his post processing option set to disabled, very low or low because of this full screen blur that makes the game look consolized (like small resulotion being upscaled = blury = loss of details).
What for you made high detail models, textures and nice effects like bloom or SSAO if almost no one is using it because of the blur that the higher post processing options come with?
Is it to much work to give us the possiblity to turn it off?
Well I have them set to very low and I'm good with that - but I agree that they are more nice to watch in ingame movies or stuff but they are not really important and realistic I dunno about that...
Well, what I do is to disable post processing and enable just SSAO through the NvidiaInspector tool. It has about 4 levels of quality settings. In another note, If you have the latest Nvidia drivers you might see a SSAO entry in the Nvidia control panel that was absent in previous drivers.

"i have mw2 and its filled around with kids,nerds,hackers whatever and its so fake, u will get mad if u play it bro" -BFBC 2 player
is setting Post Process to off or at least lowest could make the graphic itself better and will increase the FPS as well ?
