Unreal Cinema is an ENB configuration designed to give a cinematic and immersive experience within The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Requires 0.155 Binary.
This profile supports AMD setups. All files are configured using an AMD 965BE @4ghz, 8gb RAM, & XFX R7950 BE / XFX HD6870. It also supports Enhanced Lights and FX
. Also included within this profile is Mindflux\'s Skyrim Particle Patch for ENB
All author screenshots were taken using Unreal Cinema however please be aware that screenshots may vary by ENB profile version as the configuration is improved and may not represent the work in it\'s current form. If you upload user images please note the version used in the image title. INSTALLATION
To use this configuration you will need to download the ENB 0.155
binary and install into your Skyrim Directory.
Backup your saves and any d3d9.dll files in your Skyrim directory.
Remove any previous ENB/FXAA and Realistic Lighting files to avoid confliction.
Open the Unreal Cinema ENB folder and extract the profile into your Skyrim directory. Overwrite if prompted.
Install reccommended Data Files. You should be able to install / uninstall via NMM for ease of use.
Navigate to My Documents/Games/Skyrim and set
If you are using Parallax set FixParallaxBugs=True in enbseries.ini (enabled by default).
Disable hardware Anti Aliasing and Anisotopic FIltering settings on your graphics card control centre. This will be handled by the ENB profile.
Launch The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
If you play in third person exclusively then I highly reccommend editing your character position using Enhanced Third Person Camera
so that your character is a little to the left of the crosshair for optimal experience with the Tilt Shift Depth of Field.
Reccommened settings for Enhanced Third Person Camera
X Position= 35 (50 for Bow and Crossbow)
Z Position= -10
You can also modify your third person camera by adding the following tweak into your skyrim.ini. If the [CAMERA] section is not already there then create it. Tweak the camera to your liking, just make sure your character is off to one side of the crosshair so that the Tilt Shift Depth of Field is only active beyond where your crosshair is pointing, rather than constantly active due to the centred position of the players character.
You can also try one of the other tweaks offered by some other players like:Improved TPP ViewSkyrim Static Camera Mod
I reccommend using Archer tweaked versions.

Either enable ENB AA or use SMAA/FXAA Injector AA (ENB AA and Injector AA can be used together). Hardware AA will cause effects not to render so should always be disabled with this configuration.F.A.QWill this overwrite any other mods?
There may be textures included that will overwrite textures already installed. I normally keep these to water and sun textures.Why is everything dark/bright?
This is likely caused by the difference in monitor settings between you and I. Just adjust your in game brightness level a little to a level that you are comfortable with. Why is fog not rendering properly?
This is sometimes caused by SSAO which is enabled by default. You can either disable SSAO (see the EFFECTS section for instructions on how) or try refreshing the render by opening up your map and then exiting.Why is water transparent?
This is also sometimes caused by SSAO. You will either have to disable SSAO or live with it.I don\'t have great performance.
ENB can be very taxing on an average system, especially with alot of effects applied. If you have a GPU with limited VRAM, and tons of large texture mods installed, this can cause performance issues.
Try enabling the FPS limiter in game by pressing the Home key. This can make the game smoother at the cost of slightly increased loading times.
Failing that try disabling some of the effects. Depth of Field & SSAO can have a taxing performance cost with ENB. So try disabling them if you find the performance just isn\'t enough.
You can also try using a Texture Optimizer
to improve your performance. This will compress your textures to manageable sizes for your RAM to load in to decrease stuttering.
It\'s also worth noting that no ENB can ever be one hundred percent perfect for visual quality & performance (until it is optimised by it\'s developer) without alot of quality resources being cutback. What\'s good for one person may not neccessarily be good for someone else. This is the case with every ENB, even those geared towards high performance.How can I alter a setting I dislike?
To alter settings in enbseries.ini you can change them in real time in-game by pressing Shift+Enter to bring up the ENB GUI. Make sure you save your changes if you want to keep them. If you wish to discard your changes just exit the GUI (Shift+Enter) and then press Backspace to reload the profile.
For all other file edits use notepad. You will have to Alt+Tab in and out but you will see most changes in real time.
If you wish to edit the ENB more to your personal taste then I reccommend checking out the Guide to ENB Series mods
. If that doesn\'t answer your question then feel free to ask me on the comments section and I\'ll try my best to help.Is there an in game FPS counter?
Yes. If you wish to enable the ENB FPS Counter, press * on your number pad.How can I take a screenshot with all the effects applied?
If you wish to take a screenshot, press Insert. This will ensure the screenshot is taken with all effects applied.Is there any way to disable the ENB in game?
If you wish to disable the ENB, press Shift+F12.CREDITS
