I’m trying to get FXAA working on my GTX460 with FlightGear.
FlightGear is a flight simulator providing 2 rendering scheme: “default” vs “deferred”
This image is a summary of the test I’ve done: http://uppix.net/2kw8RK.png (Feel you free to zoom in , the image is large)
As you can see only (3) has a working anti-aliasing (anti-aliasing slider is at full right)
When FXAA is disabled, anti-aliasing slider is at full left in nvidia-setting
When FXAA is enabled, anti-aliasing slider is at full left in nvidia-setting
I learnt that a “deferred” rendering is only able to apply anti-aliasing with FXAA.
I would expect that (5) give me the same result than (3). But it’s not the case.
Some information about my system:
Linux Mint 16 Petra (Cinnamon) - GeForce GTX 460 SE
nVidia driver: 331.20-0ubuntu1~xedgers~saucy1 (installed via package manager from ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates)
Software used: FlightGear 3.1.0 (dev version from https://gitorious.org/fg )
My nVidia report log: http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=28747237122036063187
Talking about FXAA with another FlightGear user he sent me 2 screenshots:
FXAA disabled: https://sites.google.com/site/grtuxhangar/home/download/Shawnee_.png
HXAA enabled: https://sites.google.com/site/grtuxhangar/home/download/Shawnee-FXAA.png
This user has a GTX560 TI with Linux OpenSuse - 331.38
I conclude that FXAA is working with deferred rendering on Linux.
The challenge here is just to know why it doesn’t work for me (and eventually having it working).
Thanks in advance for your support,
