I am so addicted to it!: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10154295815396125&set=a.127059211124.138013.641081124&type=3&theater Also there some bugs, which is understandable for a first release. Sometimes Snapped photos do not save in the filters, they are saved in their default colors.

It seems to me that the NvCameraConfigurationTool would be better implemented into NVCP?

I've installed the driver and installed it again and I still get no Ansel support in Witcher 3 (which is updated to latest version), and what's worse - I don't have an "Ansel" directory in neither "C:\Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation" nor "C:\Program Files (x86)\NVIDIA Corporation". I'm using Windows 10 x64 Anniversary Update, and I have an Asus GTX 980 STRIX card. P.S. The extracted driver folder (C:\NVIDIA\DisplayDriver\372.54\Win10_64\International) DOES have the folder "NvCamera" (which seems to be Ansel) but it's not installing it for some reason. Edit 2: The problem is in the installer. I use "Custom Settings" because I don't want/need the 3D Vision drivers, and there's no option to manually select "Ansel" in the installer so I just assumed it's in the driver - it's not. You MUST select "Express Install" to get Ansel to install, it will not install otherwise. Note to Nvidia: Please add the Ansel installer as a seperate option in the Custom Installation options. Thanks!

AMbio - your not alone, Nvidia is aware of the issue, I had a month long ongoing support ticket open which we literally did everything possible to get ansel working all the way to full partition deleting and formatting the entire PC with no luck, only until this latest driver did it start working however the flickering deems it borderline useless.......

I'm having similar problems. MY first try at updating driver and Witcher 3 to 1.24, when I attempted to activate Ansel, I got massive screen flicker. I then wiped my drivers with DDU, did a full install of 372.54 again. Now Ansel doesn't work at all. Alt+F2 does nothing in the game. Before, at least it showed up. Granted it wasn't usable due to the flicker, but now..nothing. For reference, I'm on Windows 10 (not anniversary), and 2 GTX 980s in SLI.

I've posted this in a few places in hopes i'l get a reply. Is it possible when making 360 images to just see each screenshot individually in a folder ? I only use Microsoft ICE to make my effects but the screenshot accuracy in Ansel is amazing and i want to mix them together.Ansel doesn't give me any option or effects to make something like this . http://www.photographymad.com/files/images/little-planet-photos-1.jpg EDIT: [b]Looks like the program actually stores the screenshots somewhere since it takes a lot of space when taking screenshots , but whats the directory of the individual screenshots ????[/b]

I just started playing around with ansel in Witcher 3. I wanted to take a couple of super resolution screenshots of Kaer Trolde from the mountains, but it seems like the final images have a lot of ghosting going on. Otherwise everything seems to work fine. I was just wondering if there's something I can do to fix this.
