Im not too sure , but i think that temporal AA actually adds pixels to make thin objects (such as a metal bar in a gate for example) look smoother.

AF just makes textures in the distance look less muddy. I dont really notice the difference between when it is on and off, so i just keep it off all the time.

4x AF is generally performance hit free. AA Takes much more of a FPS hit than AF in general.

Hope this helped ^^
Great explaination.

People, Wiki is your friend.

Anti-aliasing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Anisotropic filtering - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia



Enjoy!

Im currently making a game, if you were to play it would you want the option of 16x AA (multi-sampling)??

it'd be less necessary at 1680x1050. you'd probably notice a fair improvement at 1440x900.

i say 1280 and down makes the biggest difference.

edit~ id even klike to have options i know ill never use. XD more the merrier

at 1680x1050 which is my monitor resolution, once u pass 4x there really isn't a difference. too much antialiasing will also make the text and some objects too blurry.
