Stairport Sceneries shadeX Released for XPL

ShadeX X Plane 11 (2)

Following on from a range of previews, Stairport Sceneries has released shadeX for X-Plane 11. The product was initially designed as a tool for taking screenshots, the developers felt that the effects would be useful for users in X-Plane 11 in general.

The utility product features the ability for users to change colour settings such as the contrast and gamma, whilst also applying various effects like sepia and other depth of field effects. You can cycle through a variety of presets or save anything you’ve set up for easy access through the user interface.

To see the product in action, a selection of videos were shared. The first of which is below.
