    Hello,

    We are using the new AO, and so far it works/looks very nice. One issue I spotted though is that areas of an object that receive the AO also get most aliasing, which is very apparent. AA is set to auto, but even if I lock it to MSAA x16, the same amount of AO aliasing is apparent. Any idea on how to fix that? My opinion is that this is an issue with the order of how post processing is applied, first AA, then AO, but then again this is something I think and can’t verify.

    Kind regards,
    Dragos

    Hi,
    Do you experience the same issue with FXAA anti-aliasing?

    Hello,
    With FXAA the result is indeed smoother, but still not as smooth as with baked AO.

    Now that I test it thoroughly, I can say FXAA is mildly better for aliasing between geometry, if it’s between geometry and transparent background, aliasing is much harder in the case of MSAA.

    That’s true, because it is real-time ;-) I think it is more appropriate to compare it with Eevee’s real-time AO.

    Yes indeed I am aware of the limitations, but EEVEE does superior AA to it when stationary.

    The current status of AA (with AO) is not acceptable for our client. In a B2C setting of very expensive products with an emphasis on look and feel, we really can’t have jagged edges like this in 2021…

    The new AO seems to be a great quick option to get some additional detail when you don’t have time to bake textures. Its far better than the previous AO Verge had so thats really great.

    For high-end commercial work, where image quality is important, I would stick with baking textures including AO. You will get the softness you are looking for.
