Revisiting Anti-Aliasing

Hello everyone. I did as many searches as I could regarding this issue. I would like to revisit this because of recent V9 changes I've experienced and get some input from the community.

 

I remember reading how broken AA was (and still is) in UE4. I used SMAA in V8 and honestly it looked pretty good. A little blurry but most of the jagged edges were gone. However, in V9 this option was removed. I tried FXAA and it looks absolutely terrible. I can tolerate it, and it is better than no AA, but viewing distant enemies is severely hindered when compared to previous versions where I used SMAA. On top of that, alot of edges (especially in foliage) have white outlines which is very distracting when running. It basically flickers when moving through the environment.

 

I installed Reshade and played around with SMAA and FXAA but had no success in removing the jagged edges or flicker completely.

 

Has anyone had success with this? What settings should I use to alleviate this problem? I don't care about color correction or anything like that (personally prefer the washed out colors).

 

Thanks in advance!

try using TXAA and sharpen the image with the help of ReShade - that's how I do it.

p.s. I use Lumasharpen (strength of the effect is 0.75 while clamp is 0.30)

So I used TXAA and its all blurry and on top of that when i look quickly to the left or right it creates a stream of past images of my weapon ... this is the worst AA ive ever seen ... SMAA with resolution scale of 150% was fine, but now you can decide if you want a mess of edges or a blurry psychedelic trip 

This is most noticeable on maps with foliage

I too reinstalled for V9 and found out nothing has changed with AA. You either play with it enabled and can't see shit because of blurriness or you play without it where the game looks terrible and it still looks horrible at distance.

It's amazing what a little LumaSharpen + SMAA can do.

I will revisit my Reshade settings and see what I can do. Setting Super Sampling Resolution to 1.25x helped a ton as well.

 

Thanks for the responses everyone.

That's great but it doesn't solve Squad having shit AA options, so when will this end?
