Hi all, I would like to know which sharpening filter you prefer and why. At the moment there are many sharpening filters, I highlight only two, CAS (port of course) and glamarye. Both sharpening filters can be called perfect, but still one of them would be better.
By the way, there is something to think about, in my opinion dying light 2 uses adaptive sharpening.

Surface Blur with negative strength values. That produces very crisp sharpening with little to no haloing and not over sharpening at low contrast areas.

iMMERSE Sharpen by Pascal Gilcher (Marty Mcfly) and to be honest that guy is some kind of wizard, how he does i'll never know but his work makes games look incredible, like how does he do it?

AdaptiveSharpen & Lord of Lunacy's SharpContrast are my go-to; SharpContrast most of the time. AMD CAS picks up too much noise for my taste.

LumaSharpen if I need to squeeze every frame I can get, I prefer it over CAS.

To my knowledge LumaSharpen is a very simple Unsharp Mask-type filter but I think the controls/settings are extremely fine-tuned to make it easy to get a good result in any game.

Intel has a sharpening filter in their Windows' drivers which seems competent but quite subtle so it's difficult to compare to competitors like CAS (not counting Nvidia as I personally hate their sharpening filters)

My current choice is iMMERSE Pro Clarity effect. The reson is that unlike other sharpening effects it does not add aliasing.

Not so long ago I tested different types of sharpening in the game Half Life Lost Coast, where at any sharpening the picture became ugly. I had to take shaders from nvidia, namely HDR mixed with a minus value of bloom, thus I got something like a clarity filter but better that-ly. The filter that I made resembles removefog but in some very light degree, without creating artifacts.
