Yes, I have switched from TVC to Countervibe. It feels more mystical and lore-friendly than TVC (but it's palette shape makes things more dark, specifically interiors; however the interiors aren't murky like TVC's). I have the Extreme Performance option (No SSAO or DOF, which I think look like crap anyway). Make sure to disable the SMAA proxy library.

I've also seen PINEAPPLEVISION. I don't use it, nor do I know the FPS loss, but it looks good.

However, as you might have noticed, I don't like the typical ENB mods most people go for. Most people go for super-saturated, warm-colored, bloomy ENBs. Those literally make me feel nauseous and they don't fit Skyrim at all (Skyrim is magical and cold). So I can understand if you don't like them.

I got True Vision to work and the regular one (not cinematic) looks AMAZING however I am noticing some lag spikes when I use the DoF and SSAO setting which are required to make any noticeable difference. Tried just DoF and it was hardly even noticeable :/

Looking at Countervibe now :)

It looks fine except the DoF effect looks minimal from the uploaded photos, do you think you could upload one or two and show me how it looks?

No. I hate DoF to death and back. I don't like my game looking like a photo, constantly going in and out of focus. I also don't like being limited on what I can see. So I can't help you there.

I also don't really like SSAO, either. It just looks like it makes the game darker, sometimes "smoother", and that's definitely not worth the FPS hit.

I run the no DoF or SSAO versions of all ENBs I can (less FPS hit and it makes my game look better, win-win), so I can't really tell you how to fix your lag spikes. (You asked for an ENB with good performance, that's simply not feasible with SSAO and DoF, unless your PC's pretty good.)

And I don't know what's wrong with your game if only large amounts of DoF and SSAO change the way it looks.

Well I mean I could see a tiny bit of DoF but it wasn't much of a difference. I might mess around with the files a little though, see how well things look on every setting

Also, make sure bFloatPointRenderTarget is enabled (=1).

I used to use Project ENB and Zoner's high performance ENB. I think Project looks better but Zoner's gave me no performance drop at all where Project ENB could drop me to 30 frames when particles effects kicked up from Ice Wraiths and Frost Dragons. Those ENBs looked great during the day look awful at night, lights are way too bright at night and shadows way too dark.

I'm using RCRN HDR right now and so far so good.

I'm thinking about trying just different settings or combining enb files, seeing what comes out.
