    Phoronix: vkBasalt CAS Vulkan Layer Adds FXAA Support

    The open-source vkBasalt project is the independent effort implementing AMD Radeon Image Sharpening / Contrast Adaptive Sharpening technique as a Vulkan post-processing layer that can be used regardless of the (Vulkan-powered) game. With vkBasalt 0.1 also now comes the ability to apply FXAA...

    Aw yeah; can finally get that high-quality smear-vaseline-over-my-eyes AA I've been looking for!

      FXAA stands for blurry as shit lol. It's literally worse than disabling AA haha.

        FXAA is not the best, but it was very simple to implement. And if I get CAS after FXAA working a large amount of the blur is going to be sharpened away.

          That's a very cool project. CAS should be very useful for the upcoming SotTR port to counter blurriness of TAA.

            If you use a recent FXAA implementation at the highest quality setting, it's not too bad if you're playing on 1440p or 4K. I wouldn't recommend it for 1080p and lower though.

              Actually TAA has that qualification, however if you combined TAA and CAS it becomes something wonderful. I don't think FXAA is as good enough with CAS, SMAA on ultra setting sure, speaking of which, why not use SMAA or that better method intel came up with that I can't remember but also has a small performance impact!

                The way I see it, especially after reading the Git issues, it makes sense to pick an easy "anything other than CAS" to implement and use that to work on shader ordering and using more than one rendering method at a time.

                Oh, and my apologies for saying I'd be able to test it on a few things followed by life kicking me in the ass preventing me from even sitting down and playing a game until last night. I'm one of the ones who was posing in the Dark Vkcube issue. Hopefully by tomorrow I'll have all my ducks back in a row.
