    Unfortunately SMAA doesn't do much for the foliage, thanks for the suggestion though. :)

    I dont recall wether BF4 was a deferred engine, but have you tried switching to SSAA or Adaptive?

    also change the filter to edge detect

    IMO morphological filtering has improved a lot since they updated it last year. I just tried it for the first time in a long time, and I thought it looked significantly better than battlefield 4's in game FXAA for example. I was surprised, because I always considered MLAA to be the worst looking post process aa, and the blurriest, but it actually looks less blurry than FXAA in bf4. Obviously its still not as good as more intensive forms of AA, but as post process AA's go I think its pretty good.

    @asskicker2

    IMO Catalyst's MLAA did a much better job with foliage than BF4's FXAA, and the foliage is less blurry looking than with FXAA.

    FXAA usually has a pretty nasty performance hit

    As long as you dont need to read any text, MLAA is fine, i prefer SMAA myself, but it doesnt always have a profound effect on AA depending on the game.

    SMAA x4 with the settings you posted @The Mac looks the best, looks really crisp! Unfortunately it ****s all over my FPS. :(

    MLAA is ok I guess, still gets a bit too much jaggies for my taste though.

    These are the settings I used for the SMAA:

    And here are the results:

    I would like to report that all Catalyst AA modes work great for "Garry's Mod" and "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2".

    Not sure this works on 290's. I've added this to my hitman profile but FPS on the benchmark scene does not change from x8MSAA using in game settings. Its like its not working. Using 14.3 beta drivers.

    EDIT

    I discovered why. I was creating a profile for hitman. Once i applied it to the general profile, it appeared to work. Interesting.

    Another superb guide, personally, I play all my computer games without anti-aliasing, why, because it makes everything look way to blurry.

    Someone known if SSAA, from CCC, worked with Dark Souls?
    I hope I can force 4xSSAA in DS2, in combo with 1440p downsampling.

    not sure why you would want to do both, they are effectively the same.
