TOPIC: Which one's the best sharpener?

Which one's the best sharpener? 1 year 5 months ago #1

So far we have Adaptive Sharpen (I've seen one post that this one's better than Luma Sharpen in terms of "Not highlighting sharpened objects"), Fine Sharp, Luma Sharpen and reshade.me/forum/shader-presentation/529...ncement?limitstart=0 High Pass Sharpen.

Has anyone any experience with those or has possibly compared them?
I'm especially interested in sharpening after FXAA: Which one of those produces the best quality afterwards.

you could put fine sharpen after fxaa in the load order to make sure its running after fxaa if luma sharpen was designed around running on depth then smoothing over line edges it would help fix the aliasing it highlights

No, the FXAA comes from my driver, not from Reshade.

I prefer Luma myself, it seems to be the one with the least impact on FPS.

For some reason if I enable Fine Sharp I lose ~90 fps in CS:GO instantly, with the default values.
It gets a bit better after tweaking but the performance impact is way to high to use it in my opinion.

I also quite like Adaptive Sharpen but for some games it kinda hard to use without over sharpening it, but that might just be my noob skills haha :)

Have fun trying them all out! :P

Wow 90 fps.. that is huge.
So I guess last stand is Luma vs Adaptive vs High Pass

In Rainbow Six Siege, AdaptiveSharpen seems to sharp edges better than LumaSharpen (on 2.5), but the overall image quality seems to be lowered.

Hey!
I only have LumaSharpen and Adaptive Sharpen in my Reshade! Why don't I have the others and where could I get them?

Thank you!

I use a combination of Adaptive Sharpen and Clarity on every single game.

In terms of quality i think it's something like this. FineSharp>AdaptiveSharpen>HIghPassSharpen>Lumasharpen

It's actually not about that, as the each sharpener works in a different way and so generates different results.

I frequently combine two and sometimes three different sharpeners at different stages in the pipeline, bringing out their effects depending on the look I'm going for.
