NVIDIA Ansel Available Now in Mirror’s Edge Catalyst

When we announced the GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1070, the world’s fastest and most advanced graphics cards, we unveiled several new technologies designed to improve and enhance your games and experiences. Of those, NVIDIA Ansel drew the most attention, offering gamers a powerful, easy-to-use camera that could capture unique, professional-grade 2D, 360° and Virtual Reality 360° screenshots on GeForce GTX graphics cards.

Today, we’re releasing NVIDIA Ansel for EA™ DICE™’s Mirror’s Edge™ Catalyst. Capture personally-framed freecam screenshots, adjust the field of view and rotation of the screen, add optional Instagram-style filters, and save to shareable filetypes with a single click. At any point during gameplay hit the Ansel hotkey and you’ll be able to capture stunning screenshots that were previously impossible to frame and snap.

To capture your own unique Mirror’s Edge Catalyst screenshots using NVIDIA Ansel:

  1. Download and install our latest Game Ready driver from GeForce Experience or
  2. Open Origin™ and download the latest Mirror’s Edge Catalyst game update
  3. Play Mirror’s Edge Catalyst and press Alt+F2 during gameplay to open the NVIDIA Ansel interface
  4. Reposition the camera using WASD, U, J, and left mouse (hold shift to accelerate movement), or use a controller (D-Pad navigates the Ansel UI, ‘A’ on Xbox controllers takes screenshot), change Ansel options as desired, click “Snap”, and open your “Pictures” folder in Windows to view the results

Using the Ansel options supported by Mirror’s Edge Catalyst you’ll be able to capture 2D, 360° panorama and Virtual Reality 360° Stereo screenshots, apply filters, define your own custom filter, and adjust framing for the perfect view. Take a look below for further info.
