Smoothing for the CPP target.

  • Can I somehow improve the smoothing for the desktop cpp target?
    The smoothing is very awkward and sharp and glitchy.

    Here's an example, cpp target, maximized window, camera.antialiasing = true

    Notice that the edges of the orange boxes are sharply cut and there's bleeding on the top portion of the enemy,
    it's displaying some pixels from the neighboring area in the tilesheet .

    It seems that everything has been smoothed out first, then cut and placed into the window buffer.
    This also applies to the NEKO target, exact same graphics treatment.

    Flash Target on the other hand, behaves just like it's expected to.

    Everything is evenly blurred, no hard edges, like so:

    Is there something I can do? A compiler flag I am missing? I don't want to alter my assets.

    Anyone knows anything? Thanks!!!! :smile:

  • I remember having this problem (or something similar) that I solved by leaving a 1 pixel margin around each sprite on my spritesheet.

  • Also you can hack OpenFl to get sharper results:

  • @caiosouza I don't want to do that!

    @starry-abyss Thanks, so it seems that the issue is with openfl.

    As a temp/not so temp/good fix I used a Blur Shader which seems to do the job right.

    ^ Blur Shader, no smoothing on cameras

    ^ As opposed to no shader & smoothing = Terrible!

    Also yes, the pixels when the window gets streched up do seem mis-oriented and skewed. Perhaps someone with a good openfl code knowledge will fix this issue! I tried to look into it for a bit but I got swarmed :crying_cat_face:

  • Hey,

    can you tell me in more detail how you fixed this with Blur Shader?

    Thank you!
