Shallow depth of field makes everything look good. ;)

Neat, it looks like everything was done with tilt-shift photography (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tilt-shift_photography). :)

Kindly consider this post me arguing at length that it does no such thing. At least outside of cutscenes. Honestly, I hate the stuff.

Even I would look good if you blurred the top 40% and the bottom 40% of my face!

(I've been told I have nice eyes, so this might actually be a bit true)

Good old tilt shift, much amusement at two people getting knocked down within seconds of each other.

Tilt-shift photography you say? So that's why it looked like a train set to me.
All this GTAIV mods are amazing, but I can't still run the game anywhere near decently on my quite capable PC. All of those great enhancing mods only make my experience with the game more frustrating.

Yeah. Kinda nice to look at. Sucks to play in.

Plus, there were no long shots in that video at all. No street perspective. Just what looked like really duded-up CCTV feeds.

On the contrary! I bet that DoF makes screenshots of whatever's making you want to throw your monitor out the window look fantastic. Usually sucks in-game though, yes.

GTA4 still looks like shit for me.

I still haven't even figured out how to enable AA (none of the mods seem to work with the steam version).

Am I the only person that had their eyes ache after a minute from looking at the video?

I have no clue how they did it ingame tbh, but still pretty impressive never the less.

Probably done with a video editor.

Aye, that's a more accurate explanation of what I was on about :)

Well i know that the shallow dof make the video looks more interesting, but i think even if there's no dof in that video the graphics will still looks really really good. Man, i want my gta 4 to look that beautiful :(

In the credit the guy didn't even mention icenhancer but instead he mentioned dpeasant who i know is an enb settings modder, i guess the guy used old modified enb settings by this dpeasant guy or somethin.

I usually feel the same way about DoF, and turn it off when there's an option, but I thought it was done fairly well in Saints' Row the Third. Maybe developers are getting better at using it by now.
