ReShade, developed by crosire, is a versatile post-processing injector for games and video software.
It allows users to enhance their favorite games and videos by adding effects like ambient occlusion, depth of field, color correction, and more.
ReShade provides a way to access frame color and depth information, enabling the creation of various visual enhancements.
It supports multiple graphics APIs, including Direct3D and OpenGL, and requires a Windows computer with .NET Framework 4.6.2 or higher.
With its own shading language called ReShade FX, users can write shaders once and have them work across different platforms.
