[TPU] [Updated] NVIDIA Ansel Post-FX Based on Stolen MasterEffect ReShade.fx Code? - Page 3

That's how open source actually works. Anyone significantly modifying open source code and not uplifting that code to the original project can name their project anything they want. Most of the time its preferred because it eliminates confusion between the forked code pools. AND as long as that code is credited and made publicly available, it doesn't violate any of the open source licensing. So if it is open source and AMD made its own modifications to this shader package and called it "AMD Shaders++", they can and its perfectly fine.

To be clear, I am absolutely no fan of Nvidia recently, but they are totally within their right to do this if the codebase it came from was licensed as such.

For instance, I think items with BSD licenses could simple be modified and named whatever you want. Just the way the license works.

For anyone who isn't aware, ReShade has been dealing with others stealing their code with zero credit given for ages.

Those GTA 'Hancer mods you keep hearing about, for example? That post-processing was ReShade. They literally just took the code and cut the 1 second splash screen out.

Despite outward appearances, the main dev has been pretty fair about it... but after a certain point, the blatant stealing demotivated him for awhile. It was tragic, really.





Anyway, that's why he's bringing this up. Others have stolen Reshade code before, so seeing Nvidia possibly do it is like a giant slap in the face.

It's never too late, just ignore the original source like most of the internet will do tongue.gif

Update and conclusion on the Ansel thing: I talked with some guys from Nvidia and especially the lead developer of Ansel, it's all sorted out. It was a result of some testing, basically leftover code; the next Ansel update will have some code removed and me credited, so it's all fine now. I have seen that someone posted this on reddit, probably in an attempt to start a ****storm or something, don't do that. It's not a big thing really and Ansel is no commercial product so case closed then =)

Commercial use isn't confined to direct sales. Confining your argument to "Ansel wasn't sold" just displays an intent to mislead people and talk your own narrative.

When a corporation incorporates someone else's work into their software suite, it's reasonable to suspect commercial enterprise is the motivation. It's for, and only for, NV's commercial product line. Ansel is not charity, and neither is "GeForce Experience".

I just updated the OP with the link and quote to MartyMcModding's statement above.

Ladies and gentleman, those of you still in possession of pitchforks, please put them in this nice leather bag until next time*.

Depending on the license an open software project is able to be developed by a lot of contributors and add whatever code they need as long as its license allows it and complying with its conditions that usually are just a mention and keeping the terms of the license.

If you don't know the first thing about free software please refrain from posting blatantly wrong information about stuff that you obviously make up on spot.

We all know what's going to happen next:

J2H walks into the courtroom with a harem of booth babes and starts to make it rain. The entire panel is Ooh's and ahh's, the judge doesn't seem to impressed, however. J2H walks up to the judge and plays with his hammer while slowly and se sensually removing his trademark leather coat. The judge is in love real quick. And just like that, case dismissed.
