Will Nvidia ever offer more modern Post-AA in their control panel beyond just FXAA?

    Would be great if you could force SMAA for example like you can in ReShade. If ReShade can do it, why not the official control panel, eh? For me, FXAA is better than nothing for some older games where you're only other option is MSAA, but would be great to see some other more modern post forms of AA if at all possible.

    Is it a "rights" thing or some such? Are they just not permitted to add something like SMAA perhaps or what? Seems like a no-brainer otherwise.

    Have you tried adding the ReShade filter for it into Freestyle?

    Ah, I had seen that revealed in some recent driver videos online, but it may not be available for my old 770 it seems. Will look into that more once my actual rig is repaired though, thanks!

    theres almost no point, because smaa needs to be paired with a luma sharpen anyway.

    Uh, have any A/B images to prove this?
    SMAA really doesn't try to average out sub pixel aliasing the way FXAA does. Hence it doesn't come with the low pass filter like roll off that FXAA does that is so off putting for many people.
    I've never seen an example of SMAA 1x affecting image sharpness.

    Honestly neither is a good solution by themselves. Any downsampling at all negates the problems with either of them.
