  title={Practical Morphological Anti-Aliasing},
  author={Jorge Jimenez and B. Masi{\'a} and Jose I. Echevarria and Fernando Navarro and D. Gutierrez},
The use of anti-aliasing techniques is crucial when producing high quality graphics. Up to now, multisampling anti-aliasing (MSAA) remains the most extended solution offering superior results in real time. However, there are important drawbacks to the use of MSAA in certain scenarios. First, the increase in processing time it implies is not negligible at all. Further, limitations of MSAA include the impossibility, in a wide range of platforms, of activating multisampling when using multiple… Expand

Reducing aliasing artifacts through resampling
This work explores an alternative formulation of antialiasing methods in which filter coefficients are computed locally for each pixel by supersampling geometry, while shading is still done only once per pixel. Expand
Subpixel reconstruction antialiasing for deferred shading
SRAA operates as a post-process on a rendered image with superresolution depth and normal buffers, so it can be incorporated into an existing renderer without modifying the shaders, and resembles Morphological Antialiasing (MLAA), but the new algorithm can better respect geometric boundaries and has fixed runtime independent of scene and image complexity.

Image anti-aliasing techniques for Internet visual media processing: a review
This paper provides a comprehensive overview of the anti-aliasing techniques used in computer graphics, which can be classified into two categories: post-filtering basedAnti-aliased algorithms are discussed through classifying them into hardware anti-Aliasing techniques and post-process techniques for deferred rendering.
