“why FSAA won’t work”
- It is not supported on all gfx HW. Especially lot of notebooks don’t have the FSAA extensions etc.
- Even if it is supported by the HW usually it cannot be turned on/off once the display is initialized. I need that the AA mode can be controlled by the user during rendering phase.
- I need to antialias only parts of the result. For example smaller fonts should be aliased.
Hope this will clarify my needs.
Also I don’t want to use Shaders as not all HW can do it.
I’d prefer some solution which can be combined with the ‘tesselation using Stencil buffer’ technique described in Red Book.
I should also note that I tried to use the built-in Tesselator which is present in GLU library but the tesselator slows down too much and there is also problem how to antialias the resulted triangulated shapes only on edges and not ‘inside’ the complex shape.
I appreciate any ideas. Thanks!
