TOPIC: Default SMAA vs Ultra SMAA

Default SMAA vs Ultra SMAA 4 months 1 week ago #1

I installed Reshade (I wanted SMAA only) but could not find much information about my default SMAA settings:

[SMAA.fx]
EdgeDetectionType=1
EdgeDetectionThreshold=0.100000
MaxSearchSteps=98
MaxSearchStepsDiagonal=16
CornerRounding=0
DebugOutput=0


Why is this setting set as default? I could not find anyone who is actually using this setting. Is it better to use the following setting, defined as "Ultra"?

#define SMAA_THRESHOLD 0.05
#define SMAA_MAX_SEARCH_STEPS 32
#define SMAA_MAX_SEARCH_STEPS_DIAG 16
#define SMAA_CORNER_ROUNDING 25

Why setting is right for Reshade 3.1.2?

Thanks in advance.

The "Ultra" etc settings are just presets for the settings in SMAA, but Reshade doesn't use the preset option, so you can edit each to see how you like it. There are several other presets that are not currently enabled.

Use Debug Output "edgesTex" to decide on best Edge Detection Type and adjust the Threshold, then use "blendTex" to adjust search steps and corner rounding. "edgesTex" is what SMAA is seeing in the scene, and "blendTex" is what SMAA is going to use to blend with the final image.
