It looks too blurry IMO, I'd rather use no shader and enabled texture filtering instead.
Sprites are ugly with your shader :p

That really does not look bad at all :)

The FF tactics screenshot at Pete's forums gives a good impression as well.

The smoothing may be a bit high as you said. I've been messing with the smoothing and sharpness variables to see if I could reduce it a bit but retain a non-pixelated look.

Here's what I've got with significantly less smoothing but a high sharpness value. Original smoothing value was .30 these shader on shots are a value of .05. Sharpness value retained at .50.


(Lower Smoothing-Grid)
(No Shader-Grid)

(Lower Smoothing-3D Combat)
(No Shader-3D Combat)


And that's Hoshigami not FFT in the shader thread. They look almost the same though. :)

I'm really happy with these settings I think. It retains a lot, almost all, of the detail and removes almost all of the pixelation.

Yeah. but no, I still think standard smoothing looks better. It doesn't smooth the textures as well as your shader does, but it doesn't ***** up the sprites

Here's some general (CG + 1 In-Game) shots of the MIDAS explosion and Emma's car chase. Lightly photoshopped for clarity and taken with the above shader in effect in an attempt to reduce graininess.

That's cause FMVs are made with motion smoothing, it interpolates each frame with the previous one so it doesn't feel like a slideshow ;)

Yeah, I know that, but usually, ppl don't really pay attention to anything I say, even when it's interesting... that's why I was surprised :>
