Hi all,

I've uploaded some super high-res 4k screenshots to my blog (http://davidcsimon.com/blog/?p=124). They make great wallpapers - even scaled down to 1080p they still look crisper than ones captured at 1080p - and there's plenty of detail and no watermarking if you want to manipulate them or adapt them for different aspect ratios.

At the moment they're all from the first part of episode 1, because it takes time to capture and process them, but I'll update this thread as more shots go up. Enjoy!

Nice work :) I think a trick was missed not including a capture mode in-game. PS4 compresses screenshots to hell.

Nice work :) I think a trick was missed not including a capture mode in-game. PS4 compresses screenshots to hell.

In-game could've been a nice tie-in with the photography theme, but if time and resources were limited then I'm happy with how they were spent.

At the moment I'm just capturing these via the Steam overlay - I've set up my Razer Naga mouse so that one of the thumb buttons acts as F12, meaning I can quickly capture without moving my hands. I've also told Steam to save them as uncompressed PNG files, so my screenshots folder is already pretty large. Over 5GB for roughly 2,000 pics so far. Most don't cut muster. It's like digital photography, rapidly snapping shots and hoping that 1 in 20 won't suck.

Sorry Max, I'm just not an analog guy :|

It's the Unreal 3 engine, so there's plenty of potential to get fancy if I want to (noclip, FoV tweaks etc.). My current focus is on capturing what Dontnod designed, but if there's sufficient interest I might get creative later. The only Photoshop magic I've done so far has been to remove interface elements - either by airbrushing, or mixing multiple shots together with masks (this is how I got the clean Title Screen pics).
