How To: Anti-Aliasing/Shader Injection (SweetFX, GeDoSaTo, GEMFX, and ReShade) - Page 107
Gear mentioned in this thread:
Tricky question. You will get banned for using SweetFX in Tribes:Ascend and it's available through Steam.
"Concerns Regarding Anti-Cheat Systems
AA injectors do not modify a game's files or memory data in anyway. It is virtually impossible to use them to cheat. They have been around for approximately two years and most video game companies are aware of them. During that period of time, nobody has been permanently banned for using an AA injector. Naturally, there are no guarantees. This should be adequately reassuring for users who worry about getting banned for using an injector online."
Again, you can cheat using SweetFX to some extent, like for example on Tribes:Ascend a guy was banned for using SweetFX to clear intended fog in maps that would give spotting advantage, iirc.. So, yes it's possible to use for cheating.
Always use at your own risk, use your brain and ask yourself whether it's cheating what you are doing or not.. And don't lie to yourself.
Valve has officially stated on their forums that they won't ban anyone for using SweetFX, so as far as Valve is concerned, this isn't a concern. Valve doesn't consider it cheating, and neither do I. Ceejay (SweetFX's creator) has explained this matter, many times in the past. The overwhelmingly vast majority of game developers don't see it as an issue either.
Now if we're talking about individual games, they may have their own rules, and that's something that needs to be considered on a case-by-case basis. You can't use post processing to reveal information that isn't already on the screen, and you can't use it to see behind fog (unlike mods that tamper with the game's code). It's inevitable that a few game developers may have twisted, and I dare say asinine opinions on this, but that doesn't really have anything to do with Valve, or Steam for that matter.
All I'm answering is Vanschneyder's question whether you can get banned in games that are in steam, so yes you can. Valve might not ban you, but doesn't mean the game devs won't. However like TFL Replica says many companies might not ban you. Just make sure beforehand and you'll have no regrets.
if it were up to me, any 3rd party program that alters the game experience would be banned in multiplayer games, but that's subject for another topic.

I've heard it said in some game forums that SweetFX should be banned because because it can raise the contrast and it sounds like that is what you are saying as well.
But if you consider SweetFX a cheating tool because it can increase the contrast then you should also consider both the Nvidia and the AMD control panel cheating tools because so can they, and so can almost all monitors and most TVs.
Many monitors and TVs can also sharpen the image and change the color balance.
It does not matter where you purchased the game - what matters is it that games anti-cheat system considers using SweetFX an offense.
The Valve Anti-Cheat system (VAC) and Punkbuster does not.
The only two games that will ban (that I am aware of) are Planetside 2 and Tribes:Ascend and both can be downloaded through Steam.
Edit : Hi-Rez that made Tribes:Ascend is also working on a new game called SMITE - I have not heard of any bans in this game, but since they ban in Tribes:Ascend I would also avoid using SweetFX in SMITE.
