    Redemption80, you got something there. I think I belong to the second team: games look like games, but with HD-res textures.

    i found it to sterile without it esp in ME1 - if only it were controllable, yea it was a little to much at times:D


    but for screen shots it sucks, true:bang:

    Depends on how its applied and the game type I'd say. Some games it looks atrocious to me, others it works well. I actually quite like it in ME2.

    ME2 does have motion blur, you can only enable/disable it in the config tool.

    I think Mass Effect 2 actually looks much better with film grains on, Mass Effect 1 on the other end overdo it a lot. Couldn't play L4D2 without the grain effect, altho it's configurable in that.

    Hate it, it's retarded. I don't want to play a game in HD with noise filters applied.

    I turn it off if it looks too unrealistic. Generally they overkill the effects so I disable it.

    Mass Effect 2 and Left4Dead is done right so I have them enable. Also in Mass Effect 1 I had this effects enables but it wasn't as good as ME2.

    It depends on the game. Left4Dead and its sequel felt right with just a bit of grain to them. Mass Effect and its sequel however it just felt weird considering it takes place in the future where there would be no analog recording. It just came off as feeling anachronistic and cheesy.

    It's 2011 no one uses film anymore. That effect is no longer needed. However, if you can adjust it then OK. A very small amount makes it look like the ISO grainyness of digitial cameras on higher ISO at night.

    Motion blur and film grain are used in console games to cover up horrific aliasing and low levels of anisitropic filtering as well as to disguise pop in etc with mud filters....

    turning them on in pc games is like putting 91 ocatane fuel and 15" wheels in/on a ferrari.

    So yeah, that's a big no...

    Yeah motion blur is filler for those 30FPS console games.

    Film grain effect just makes me laugh, we all demand higher res textures and sharper images to make our expensive GPU's pay for there investment only then to cover up all the artwork with ****e on top.....personally it's the first thing I turn off.

    Are you out of your mind? The vast majority of theatrical releases is shot on film.

    Let's look at the current Box Office Top Ten:
    http://www.imdb.com/chart/

    1) The Rite = 35mm film
    2) No Strings Attached = N/A (presumably 35mm)
    3) The Mechanic = 35mm film
    4) The Green Hornet = 35mm film
    5) The King's Speech = 35mm film
    6) True Grit = 35mm film
    7) The Dilemma = 35mm film
    8) Black Swan = 16mm film (DSLR HD for subway scenes)
    9) The Fighter 35mm film
    10) Yogi Bear = N/A

    Yeah lol at the no-one uses Film anymore comment.

    The only movies that don't use Film are low budget stuff, and they look terrible when filmed with HD camera's, you ever saw how bad the Crank movies look.

    I just tried ME and L4D2 with grain off, and its horrible, makes the game look cheap and no longer cinematic, and just too much like a game, which ruins the atmosphere for me.
