How To: Anti-Aliasing/Shader Injection (SweetFX, GeDoSaTo, GEMFX, and ReShade) - Page 23

Forcing the sharpening pass to occur before the AA pass should be possible by editing the header files. I'll test this using exaggerated sharpening values to highlight any differences.

Edit: Looks like swapping the sharpening and AA passes just messes up the image.

Anyway, sorry if it was asked before, but is there anyway to have the sharpen filter applied BEFORE smaa? It's just a personal preference, i like to sharpen blurry/bad/console textures first, THEN evenly smooth the entire scene. Mostly to avoid the final product looking rough & coarse. Would also help me fix the "Also sharpens the antialiased edges" that CeeJay was talking bout regarding his Luma Sharpen.

I've actually gotten that idea too, but haven't had the time to try it out.
It's not as simple as it sounds though, but maybe after I release 1.3 I'll take a look at it.

Still I have lots of other stuff to do too and too little time - no promises.

Yeah .. like I said, it's not that simple.

I think maybe you forgot to correct for gamma or maybe you didn't pass the right values.

Still I think you've stumbled onto an oil painting like effect smile.gif

You're right, it does kind of look like an oil painting effect. So now we know what happens if the gamma correction code is executed after the LumaSharpen pass.

For SGSSAA try these flags :
http://whoisjimothy.com/public/dishonored_nspector.png

Jim2point0 said he uses these for his beautiful Dishonored and Borderland 2 shots.
These flags should be sharper and not blur as much as other SGSSAA flags.

These flags are for SGSSAA 4x but I'm sure it works well for 2x too.

Thanks, I'll give those settings a shot. thumb.gif

LumaSharpen is already in gamma space, so if you do the linear to gamma space conversion on it you end up doing gamma twice which makes it really dark.

So you either need to do a gamma to linear after Lumasharpen , then do SMAA which works in Linear space and then do linear to gamma after again.
Or do lumasharpen in Linear space which means using the linear sampler instead of the gamma sampler - doing it in linear space will affect how the sharpening will look - I'm not sure if it will be better or worse though.

If I could I'd like to do all the samples in linear space because that is faster on nvidia hardware.

Anyways as I said .. not so simple.

Here's a repeat of the 2xSGSSAA screenshot using Jim2point0's dishonored nv inspector settings. It's less blurry than 0x0000F0C1 at the cost of slightly more visible aliasing.

Okay I'm back on this thread again after setting up my rig just the way I want it; recently upgraded RAM to 32GB 2133Mhz. thumb.gif

First question is what are the best SMAA settings for BF3? I used to use Kcuestag's FXAAInjector for BF3 but after that article about how DICE might ban players for using color correction, I removed it. Does SMAA face the same risk? Is anyone using SMAA in BF3 without issue? If so, what are the best settings?

Secondly, I just got Borderlands 2 and want to know what the best settings for those are. The link this thread to that guy "Jim" who posted some screenshots of that game are just incredible. Would love some advice on that.

Thanks.
