Cinematic Bars


The simplest addon on the entire workshop.

Also known as letterbox bars, these will make you feel like you're watching an awful summer blockbuster.

The options
In the Q Menu under "Options/Cinematic/Cinematic Bars", you can change the following:
  • The size of the bars (cinematicbar_barsize in console)
  • Whether the bars are vertical or horizontal (cinematicbar_vertical in console)
  • Whether you want stereotypical movie effects (cinematicbar_effects in console)
All you need to make it into Hollywood.

Have fun!
