    Good morning, i'm having a problem recently taking screenshots with rF2...

    Before i could use keys 1 and 3 of the numpad to increase/decrease the depth (after pressing U key), now it's not working anymore, anyone knows why?

    Thanks!

    I'm not much of a replay / screenshot user so I went and had a look using default A-Z Keyboard controller preset.
    It seems the 1 & 3 numpad (zoom in/out) only work with Spectator Cams: END, and Tracking Cams: PG_DN. (after pressing U key)

    You may want to go check your controller bindings.
    I hope this helps.

    It's all setup correctly, suddently i can't increase/decrease world with those 2 keys! It worked when you pressed "U" key on PageUp chase Camera, i could rotate the car, zoom in/out and increase depth with 1 and 3 keys of numpad. Now they don't work anymore don't know why...

    PageUp is Swingman camera and 7 & 9 zoom in and out without U.
    What do you mean with Chase camera because there is no "Chase" camera by name.
    Cameras are:
    Driving: Insert
    Onboard: Home
    Swingman: PgUp
    Spectator: End
    Tracking: PgDn

    Any way, I reckon @Filip has hit the nail on the head.

    Ok, no chase camera, it's swingman, the one that you can rotate, elevate, etçª...

    @Filip already tried on and off, doesn't work... like i've said, it worked before, two weeks at least, yesterday tried to get a screenshot and didn't work...

    I'm thinking... do i need PP Effects in ultra for it to work? Not very logical but that just came to my mind...

    I just tried with PP on medium with spectator camera and 1&3 worked so you were right and not going senile. ;)

    I found a post by @Emery concerning PP Effects
    Stop VSYNC to avoid latency OK, but how to have a smooth game ?

    This is quoted from that post.
    "An overview of the levels:
    None
    Low = Glare Effects
    Medium = Glare Effects and Depth of Field
    High = All Effects at High Quality
    Ultra = All Effects at Ultra Quality

    "Realistic simulation of Depth Of Field, Lens Flare, Bloom and other Optical aberrations, with scalable options."
    ***
    You will not see Depth of Field, Lens Flare, Bloom or Optical aberrations in cockpit view because they are lens effects that the human eye does not generate. You will see Glare Effects in cockpit view, which I think utilizes bloom in a strict fashion.

    Thus why go above Medium post processing when you're driving? You shouldn't if you're at all concerned about fps."

    Is there a way to take screenshots aside from the steam way? I mean, im used to Assetto Corsa where it has a folder that stores your screenshots and you dont have to deal with steam at all to see/download them. Thank you!

    When I press F12 I get screenshots in the steam area(too lazy to check exact location :D) and also in the rF2....userdata/screenshots folder.

    I have the Steam Overlay disabled ( Steam Settings / In-Game / Untick first box) so when I press F12 my screenshots are only saved in the rF2 screenshot folder as @Goanna mentioned.
    Your Steam screenshots are located: where you installed Steam \ userdata\ <yourSteamID> \ 760 \ remote\ <app – ID> \ screenshots.
