A lil' PSA about transparent shots: You may experience some odd dithering around the cutout area when using chromakey with a contrasting background.
That happens because the shader ignores antialiased border pixels.
In order to avoid these artifacts take your chromakey screenshot in an area with a background similar to the color you'll use for the borders around the subject:
Want a nice cut-out picture? transparent chromakey shots are here to save the day!
You can achieve this with a combination of two features in ReShshade: ChromaKey.fx, a technique that generates a greenscreen effect, and Clear Alpha Channel, a toggle located under the Settings tab.
1 - Setup
Make sure PNG is selected as the target format since JPG doesn't preserve transparency!
Also, don't forget to re-enable Clear Alpha Channel after taking your shots - otherwise, you may capture completely black shots!
2 - Enabling the Shader
Place Chromakey.fx right after FFRestoreUI.fx- otherwise, your UI may be hidden by the shader.
3 - Take your screenshot!
You should now be able to capture shots with transparency properly preserved!
Chromakeyed, transparent images can be used in several different situations! For example, I often use it to create tutorial slides.
What about reference cards for art commissions?
Or maybe stickers with your friends. Or Discord emotes. Or whatever strikes your fancy. The sky's the limit!
This is my first guide adapted to ReShade. If you have any questions about this feature or other aspects of ReShade or GPose, feel free to ask!
And if you need a handy guide to help you migrate from GShade to ReShade, here's a link!
Most of you probably know about this already, but I frequently find users that aren't aware of this feature: You can actually link glams to gear sets!
This is pretty handy for those with different glams for classes of the same type. There are some caveats, though: if I remember correctly this feature only works in sanctuary spaces (like Cities). Still, it may save you some time digging around before hopping on a duty!
Some of my guilty pleasures when putting glam sets together: matching elements across glam pieces of different sets.
The way the white brim from the Ivalician fending top lapel matches the Raptorskin Skirt's own and how the corset curve flows with it. Toss in a Voeburtite gauntlet for its shape and leather details, and it's pure bliss.
Harmonizing details and repeating motifs. Black bands? Why yes, black bands.
The story of how a girl who was born with no magic became the Fatewalker is an old one. Some say that she inherited the magic from her mother; others, that she was chosen as a champion for an ancient power.
