Photography is many things, a hobby, a passion and even an art form, where thousands of people across the world work tirelessly to create the perfect picture, be it of a landscape, a person or pretty much anything in existence.  A picture is worth a thousand words but right now taking pictures inside the digital world has been somewhat limited.  

Right now in-game photography, screenshots, offer gamers a very limited way to capture a digital image, restricting players to the in-game camera view which is often obscured by the game's UI and other gameplay aiding elements. Screenshots are also limited to the resolution that the player is using, which is limited by the monitors and gaming hardware that PC gamers utilise, but this ends today with Nvidia's Ansel.  

Nvidia Ansel is a digital photography tool for games, giving players to opportunity to capture the perfect image with a free moving camera and the ability to pause a scene, giving digital photographers the tools that they need to truly take digital photography to the next stage.  

Now Nvidia has announced that Ansel will be coming to The Witcher 3 on August 15th, allowing gamers to take digital pictures inside the game at resolutions that are much higher than your monitor

 

Nvidia has also announced that there are currently several more Ansel enabled games in development, including Fortnite, Paragon, Unreal Tournament, Obduction, The Witness, Lawbreakers, Tom Clancy’s The Division, and No Man’s Sky.

I'd think it as pointless. It's not like you could take advantage of seeing the extra pixels at 32x and in addition it's being scaled, so it's not like it would good as native. Unless i'm wrong here and someone would like to point out what i'm missing about it.Quote

Grats on the 10K

AFAIK the reason for the obscene resolution and EXR capture is so you can get into the knitty gritty with photoshop and various other image editing software to get a really polished look if that's your cup of tea Quote

So it just allows you to take a very high res software scaled picture, then lets you export to OpenEXR/PS and let's you basically make it more "native"(if thats the right word, i'm not a photo guy at all) i'd guess?Quote
