Note: This is a legacy SDK. Developers may download and continue to use, but it is no longer supported.

NVIDIA Ansel is a revolutionary way to capture in-game shots and share the moment. Compose your screenshots from any position, adjust them with post-process filters, capture HDR images in high-fidelity formats, and share them in 360 degrees using your mobile phone, PC, or VR headset.

Sharing is even easier with GeForce Experience. Hit “Alt+Z” to open the in-game overlay and quickly share Ansel images to Facebook, Imgur, and Google Photos.

Ansel is adopted by industry leading graphics engines such as Unreal Engine 4 and Unity 5 to provide developers an easy path to take amazing in-game shots like never before. Support for Amazon’s Lumberyard engine was also just recently announced with Ansel.

Ansel also offers support for other graphics engines through the publicly-available Ansel SDK. To learn more, join the GameWorks Access Team on GitHub using the instructions below.

Introducing Shot With Geforce for Ansel

NVIDIA Ansel enables gamers to take stunning in-game photographs in nearly 40 games, from virtually any angle, at super resolutions, and in full 3D. Since its launch in May 2016, over 5 million unique Ansel shots have been captured on GeForce GTX graphics cards, and now we’re enabling you to upload them straight from GeForce Experience to a custom-made website called “Shot With GeForce”.

Shot With GeForce has been specifically designed for Ansel’s capabilities, allowing you to upload, view and share any type of Ansel screenshot. That means you can zoom in on Super Resolution photos, view shots with custom filter combinations, rotate around immersive 360-degree photospheres, or even use Google Cardboard to view in VR.
