How to use
  • How to enable AMD Fluid Motion Video

    Turn on "Enable AMD Fluid Motion Video" in "Device" setting.

  • About Video Player

    Please setup to use Bluesky Frame Rate Converter in DirectShow Player. For some players, the setting method is explained below.

  • About DXVA decode

    In LAV Video Decoder, please set "Hardware Decoder to use" to "DXVA2 (native)". There is no point to choose "DXVA2 (copy-back)" when using the same GPU for BlueskyFRC and for LAV Video Decoder.

  • Zero-Copy Mode Requirements
    • Video Player use Enhanced Video Renderer or madVR
    • Video Renderer and BlueskyFRC use the same GPU

    If these conditions are not met, BlueskyFRC will not be used.

  • About Video Quality Filter

    You can set the following filters available for Radeon GPU.

    • Sharpness Filter (Edge Enhancement, Detail Enhancement, Resolution Enhancement)
    • Noise Filter (Temporal NR, MoComp Temporal NR)
    • Mosquito Noise Reduction
    • De-contouring
    • Dynamic Contrast (Non-Adaptive, Content Adaptive)
    • Color Filter (Color Vibrance, Color Enhancement)

    If the GPU does not support, the filter will not actually work or work in another supported mode even if the setting is enabled.

    Please set to "Disable" for unused features. For example, when you set "Custom Colour Vibrance" to "Off" on the Radeon Settings, Dynamic Contrast and Color Filter will not working regardless of the setting on the "Video Quality Filter Setting", in such cases please set them to "Disable".

  • About Decode option

    If you can specify BlueskyFRC as an external filter in the video player and it is actually used, you do not need to change this setting. However, this option is a useful setting in the following cases.

    • When only a video decoder can be specified as an external filter

      In this case, turn on "Enable decode function using external decoder" and specify the decoder to be used as the external decoder.

    • When impossible to specify any external filter, but possible to specify a specific decoder (LAV Video Decoder or MPC Video Decoder)

      In this case, turn on "Enable decode function using external decoder" and specify the decoder to be used as the external decoder.

      In addition, after turn on "Enable Global Mode", run video player and specify the decoder selected this setting in the player setting.

      Note: In this case, all applications that use the decoder selected in this setting will load BlueskyFRC.
