BF3 FXAA or SMAA Injector?

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 
For those who have used both, which one do you prefer?
Were you able to use the injector and successfully remove?
And last but not least, has anyone been kicked or banned on a ranked server using either injector?

RE: BF3 FXAA or SMAA Injector?

I used smaa never had any problems, but it will disable any kind of overlay like afterburner. No problems of being called a hacker for using it. Neither are perfect, but light msaa and smaa are awesome in bf3.

I used the SMAA injector, which is supposedly the superior of the two and wasn't impressed. The only difference I noticed was a slight blurring of the UI elements and a little added framerate choppiness. Installing and removing is as simple and dragging and dropping files, so it's easy to remove.

I'm currently using the FXAA injector on BF3 and it looks great and I have it working with the afterburner OSD.

I didn't know about the SMAA injector though, going to have to investigate that.

Just using Build-in FXAA @ Medium. In a Low quality TF Panel FXAA injector is good. With my IPS it messes up the color accuracy.

I like the FXAA better as you can fine tune the color. Not sure if SMAA had that option
post #7 of 41
Thread Starter 
So I decided to try the FXAA injector and man, I'm very impressed. Game looks much better with such vibrant colors. Reminds me a lot of BFBC2 which is a good thing IMO. Got a nice boost of FPS as well. Now I'm still running AF at 16 but have disabled AA. Is that going to be a problem? Also, Where about do I go to "fine tune" the colors? I only played for a short while since I ran home for my lunch break.

SMAA is the best post-process antialiasing option available. the best part is that it is light and does not blur the screen.

I think the SMAA just shades it for quality of the AA vs the FXAA.

Both cost about 4-5fps for me so its a toss up which to use, but I've gone with the FXAA with inluded color/contrast tweaks from here http://forums.electronicarts.co.uk/battlefield-3-pc/1454675-better-sharper-custom-fxaa-injector.html

When my 7970 arrives tommorrow i'm going to enable x2 MSAA aswell so should be sorted then !!!!!
