Ansel Console Variable Reference

The following console variables are available for configuring the behavior of the Nvidia Ansel Photography Plugin and can be set manually from the console, through your .ini files, or dynamically by a Blueprint. Most of them should be configured during development instead of at runtime, though r.Photography.Allow is useful to set dynamically.

Variable Default Description
r.Photography.Available 1 (Read-only) If 1, the photography system is potentially available to the user. Otherwise, a functioning back-end is not available. This is set to 1 when the plugin is enabled.
r.Photography.Allow 1 If 1, allows a photography session to potentially be started by the player. Set this dynamically to permit or forbid photography per-level, per-cutscene, etc.
r.Photography.EnableMultipart 1 If 1, allow the photography system to take high-resolution shots that need to be rendered in tiles which are later stitched together.
r.Photography.SettleFrames 10 The number of frames to let the rendering 'settle' before taking a photo. Useful to allow temporal AA/smoothing to work well; if not using any temporal effects, can be lowered for faster capture.
r.Photography.TranslationSpeed 100.0 Normal speed (in Unreal units per second) at which to move the roaming photography camera.
r.Photography.AutoPostprocess 1 If 1, the photography system will attempt to automatically disable HUD, subtitles, and some standard postprocessing effects during photography sessions/captures which are known to give poor photography results. Set to 0 to manage all postprocessing tweaks manually from the PlayerCameraManager Blueprint callbacks.

Blueprint callbacks will be called regardless of AutoPostprocess value.

r.Photography.AutoPause 1 If 1, the photography system will attempt to ensure that the level is paused while in photography mode. Set to 0 to manage pausing and unpausing manually from the PlayerCameraManager Blueprint callbacks.

Blueprint callbacks will be called regardless of AutoPause value.

r.Photography.PersistEffects 0 If 1, custom postprocessing effects enabled in photography mode are permitted to persist in the game after a photography session has ended. Changes to this value might not be applied until the next photography session starts.
