Clear POP! was made as a request by one of my lovely Patreon subscribers, shooby sims. Their brief was that it be a bright, clear, cool and cheerful preset that made colours bold and punchy, while avoiding overly-saturated oranges and haziness. Their overriding desire was that it made them feel happy!
Clear POP! is a lightweight preset, relying on handmade LUTs that do the majority of the work, and a small handful of additional shader effects to help balance things in certain locations and times of day.
Clear POP! makes use of shaders from a few different places, so for ease of use everything you need is included. Links to the various shader repositories are included in the instructions file should you need to get updates or replacements in the future.
Clear POP! was made using luumia's No Blu (v2, gameplay version) and No Glo (v2.1). If you don't use these lighting mods interiors in particular will look different to any of my screenshots, but it should still look okay.
Made with ReShade 4.7 and 4.8.2. Should work with any 4.x version. Installation and usage instructions are included in the download.

With thanks to everyone involved in the ReShade project, and to shooby sims for commissioning this preset.
- 2021-04-17: updated to Clear POP! version 1.1 - tweaked prod80_04_SelectiveColor_v2_02 to better reduce green-toned shadows and blacks, so now it produces a much more neutral result. Replace your amoebae - Clear Pop.ini file with the new one. You don't need to replace anything else.
