Def-Ren short for Deferred Rendering or sometimes called Deferred Shading. A technique for rendering scenes. Sort of the opposite of Forward Rendering. Def-Ren allows to render scenes which parameters Forward Rendering can not handle. AA as an effect (Def-Ren is a render technique not an effect) is designed and works with Forward Rendering but doesn't work with Def-Ren since the rendering process is decoupled (depth pass, geometry pass, lighting pass, post-process pass and so forth). Def-Ren though is the future. There exists hacks misusing MSBs (Multi Sampling Buffers) trying to simulate AA but in general they are even worse than AA itself. But that's not really a problem since as mentioned AA doesn't look good so it won't be missed in the long run.
