MORPHOLOGICAL ANTIALIASING AND TOPOLOGICAL RECONSTRUCTION

Adrien Herubel, Venceslas Biri, Stephane Deverly

Abstract

Morphological antialiasing is a post-processing approach which does note require additional samples computation. This algorithm acts as a non-linear filter, ill-suited to massively parallel hardware architectures. We redesigned the initial method using multiple passes with, in particular, a new approach to line length computation. We also introduce in the method the notion of topological reconstruction to correct the weaknesses of postprocessing antialiasing techniques. Our method runs as a pure post-process filter providing full-image antialiasing at high framerates, competing with traditional MSAA.
