Motion blur[edit]

The game's own anti-aliasing may result in motion blur.
Remove motion blur[2]
  1. Set in game AA to "High" and use in combination with the below:
  2. Open Engine.ini with a text editor at configuration file(s) location.
  3. Add the lines:

[SystemSettings]
r.MotionBlur.Max=0
r.MotionBlurQuality=0
r.DefaultFeature.MotionBlur=0
r.DepthOfFieldQuality=0
r.Tonemapper.Sharpen=1
r.Tonemapper.Quality=0
r.MaxAnisotropy=16

The first 3 r. lines tell the game to not use any motion blur at all. Lines 5 and 6 tells it that the image shall be sharper, and line 7 maxes out anisotropic filtering.

  1. 1.0 1.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/389670/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (389670) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.

    If the resolutions in GameUserSettings.ini are manually set to 2560x1080, the game will shrink back to widescreen when the initial loading screens are shown.
  2. Verified by User:Dandelion Sprout on 2021-09-26
    At 1440p, sharpen=1 looks good with the "High" in-game anti-aliasing, and sharpen=3 works best with the "Very high" anti-aliasing.
