@x7007 Could you please only capture (with Snipping Tool) the part of the screen with useful content instead of the whole screen showing mostly white background? It's much more comfortable when reading the thread. Thanks.

how to export MadVR settings and color saturation

HI ,

I looked at page 1 , googled and looked at Asmodian's help page , but I

can't find how to save or export my settings...

Took me approx 2 months of tinkering and reading a lot to get where I am and I'd really like to save these settings for safe guarding

(I did export MPC-BE 's settings , but this doesn't include MadVR , right? ryrynz & Asmodian we're spo kind to provide me with 2 settings files , medium and high and these files are named: settings.bin, but in the MadVR installation folder I don't see a settings.bin file. If I put one of these there , they do work, so how can I save / export my settings ?)

2nd question, I have a gtx1060 , 1700 AMD with 16 gigs and an 55' 4K OLED , in regards to image enhancement, are values over 1.0 too much ?


3th I would like over staturate colors , like Netflix does, where should I start to tinker with the settings ?

Many thanks in advance , absolutely love (and somethings hate) MadVR ;-) and enjoy reading this thread daily

KR, Sven

I'm having a weird problem after updating to win 1803 and the latest madvr. My mouse cursor has completely disappeared during fse which prevents me from using the seek bar during playback. Has anyone else experienced this?

Odd, all three of those modes work well for me, process with a 3DLUT works perfectly and process with pixel shaders works fine too.

I still think this statement is relevant:

No, I still get a mouse cursor with 1803 and FSE, also using Zoom Player.

Please read the rest of the text around where you got my settings.bin file:

I collected all of the links I have into one post at another forum. Anyone curious can find them here. I may upload some more from my collection when I have time, but I don't intend to create a database or anything. Just an introduction to madVR's features. It's also very time consuming to create these images on my own.

Image Gallery of madVR Image Processing Settings

Note: Not all images display obvious differences between algorithms. The ones shown do. That's just the nature of how each algorithm works. The same would apply to actual content.

I'm sure many people here have seen them already, as the majority were originally posted by madshi.

Edit: Moved to Doom9. No sense in keeping it in the Kodi forums when Kodi doesn't officially support madVR.

Please read the rest of the text around where you got my settings.bin file:
Yes, but I think you misunderstood me ... you wrote there : madVR's settings can be backed up or shared via a settings.bin file.

But I would like to know how to do that. Backup my own settings

TIA, Sven

If you install madVR in a folder with write access--for example, "c:\madvr"--the program itself will create/update the settings.bin file in that folder whenever you make a change to the settings. Otherwise, the settings are stored in the registry.

To make a backup, change any setting and save it. Then change it back again and save it. Now you'll have your backup. You can copy the settings.bin file somewhere else if you want.

You need to place madVR somewhere where it has write access. Not in Program Files.

MadVR should be installed in %appdata%.

I have an EDID editing utility that reads the EDID values from the registry for my displays. The data in the utility does not always match the EDID data madVR displays. For example, I have a monitor that supports 10-bit color, but according to madVR it only supports 8-bit color.

I assume madVR is reading the registry values, too, so why don't they match?

After latest windows 10 update yesterday (1803)
With 397.31 driver 10-bit output doesn't work even with FSE mode anymore. It doesn't even let you run FSE Mode.
With 397.40 driver 10-bit output freezes when in FSE mode.

Going back to madVR v0.92.12 with 397.40 driver 10-bit works fine in D3D11 Fullscreen windowed mode.

Windows 10 doesn't automatically give full write access to MADVR folder, you need to add it in security or place it outside of Program files as Warner advises. it doesnt matter where you put it though as long as it has full R/W access.

My preference is to just give myself write access to program files as I prefer all my progs in one area.

However, this periodically gets removed by windows updates i've found, it happened with creators update.

So let me understand well for those like me who use the HDR passthrough is better to exit in fse 10bit or windowed mode to 8bit as in the current version of madvr the 92.14? .... I have the impression that in windowed mode 8bit the image is better ..... for the HDR is it better to stay with the NVIDIA 385.28 drivers or switch to the last one 397.40?

After the 1803 update to Win10 I'm dropping frames like mad here. Render & present queues are going way down. I'm using the same settings as before. I have tried 3 different nVidia drivers too, but same thing. So is there a problem with MadVr in Win10 build 1803?

Edit : I lowered the settings down to NGU High and it's not dropping frames now, but look at the render & present queues. Well under 10ms stats.

Edit 2 : Removed an image that takes for ever to get approved. Will make a new post.

Software for windows should not need write access anyway for the program files folder.
If madVR need this for a feature imho this should be changed by madshi.

madVR doesn't even come with an installer, if you place it in Program Files, thats your own fault. Also, it stores its settings in the registry as well, so its never "required" to have that write access. The file is just a secondary settings storage, its not mandatory to retain the configuration.

I disagree here.
Program files folder is for Applications and windows offers special folders where settings can be saved.

Windows also has the registry, where madVR stores its settings. So what exactly is the problem now? =p
I like that it stores the settings in its own directory, that lets you more easily ship pre-configured settings or have madVR be more self-contained if you try to handle it "portable" without installing it in the system (if the player supports that).

But you can see what other users (i.e. mclingo) are doing to get this settings.bin?
Imho this should not be encouraged.
