Black Desert Isn’t Pretty Enough, So They Added Camera Filters

By Eugene . May 21, 2014 . 4:01pm


The latest feature to be added to online RPG Black Desert should be popular with machinima fans: they’ve added camera filters to the game.



As in any online RPG, players will be able to stop and remove their interface to take screenshots. Black Desert’s much-touted beauty would be remiss therefore if we didn’t have the preening masses able to adjust their shot to be as perfect as it can be: Which includes camera blur, fading out of backgrounds, multiple color tones and even moving the camera.


Interestingly, it also appears that you can remain in this mode (though whether with the interface turned on or not is a question mark) and still move around. Maybe you’ll even be able to play it in your own preferred color scheme. There might (though this is pure conjecture) even be a colorblind filter.


Finally, for the eagle-eyed, the eyes of characters follow the camera too. That’s nifty. And a little creepy.


Black Desert is scheduled for release on PC in Korea and Europe.

    Ugh, prepare for legions of shots with tuned up depth of field and saturation values from the aesthetically Illiterate.

    All i can look at is that dress clipping through her leg……..i know, strange that it bugs me but it just does, xD.

    • gulabjamal

      Yeahh they really should’ve just given her pants instead of using a dress for this vid. That clipping stood out like hell

  • gulabjamal

    Unless I can take a selfie, edit it, and post to instagram, I’m not getting this game.

  • revenent hell

    Her head looks like it was shrunk in comparison to the larger body especially the arms and legs….. The clipping has already been mentioned but its so annoying to see.

    Oh hey! Camera simulation/DoF that doesn’t retardedly apply Chromatic Aberration to the entire screen! HUZZAH!

    Seriously, that’s how you use CA right there folks. Subtle fringes within the DoF

    • Crevox

      I agree with everything you said. Yes.

    I just got a “Return to Vana’diel” google ad from that video. What bizarro universe have I fallen into?

    Or, you know, a flat chested character.

    Is it just me or does she looks korean?
