Antialiasing plugin?
on Aug 8, 2011 at 6:04:25 pm

Hey all,

I've searched the web over for a plugin that could antialias aliased assets (namely aliased 3D animations) but the only one I found was PSoft for Windows. I need one for Mac OS, After Effects 5.5.

I'm really surprised no one has made anything like this! Anyone know of one?

Many thanks,

Check out Instant HD by Red Giant software. It can help with mild aliasing. It can't FIX bad aliasing. Nothing really can. So I guess the real question is, "how bad is it?"

Topaz Labs used to sell a plugin pack for restoration tasks which
was the best of the best.
"Topaz Enhance" was able to deinterlace/denoise/upscale/fix compression/antialise etc mostly for SD video.
It is no longer available since they decided that in a DSLR area there is no need for a plugin like this.
Dave is kinda right. But the real powerful version of Instant HD was in the previous 1 and 1.1 version because it was powered by topazLabs.
However you should check it out, it might do the trick for you.

But I'd recommend you to see if you can find any previous demo of this amazing plugin.
Contact Topaz.
"Line accent" filter is all you need. It was able to smooth any pixelated diagonal line.
Line Accent was part of "Topaz Enhance"
I requested a demo version of it almost 2 months before they decide to call-in it.
They sent me a 30days Trial activation Key and it was fully functional.
My copy it's for windows and I'm 95% positive there was a mac version also available.

It's really powerful.

For your info, as part of SmoothKit we have a tool called Staircase suppress.
