We are proud to announce the evolution of Jimenez’s MLAA!
SMAA, Subpixel Morphological Antialiasing
It solves the key weaknesses of MLAA by introducing the following features:
- Improved pattern searchs
- Improved pattern detection
- Diagonal handling
- Avoiding the general roundness introduced by MLAA
- And probably the most important: subpixel features.
We’ve decided to release it as a technical report, available here:
SMAA: Enhanced Subpixel Morphological Antialiasing
Please note that some information is outdated (for example the timings of FXAA and SRAA, as they are now faster); we will be updating it in the next weeks. The souce code builds on top of Jimenez’s MLAA v1.5, so we will be posting patches with each improvement we added, with all the nut and bolts details, so stay tuned!
We’ll also be talking a little about it in the SIGGRAPH course Filtering Approaches for Real-Time Anti-Aliasing, we invite you to come by!
