Description:
The goal of this demo is to show how nice a high quality antialiasing could be. Actual implementation is a "brute force" 16x supersampling. For 1024x768 screen resolution it's rendered internally as 4096x3072 onebit image, then scaled down by replacing each 4x4pixel block by one shaded pixel. So there are 17 shades used in resulting picture.
Functionality? Just simple 3ds loader plus wireframe renderer. Works in realtime (but could be pretty slow on 100kpoly 3d models). Unfortunatelly, there is no speed optimization yet, I simply don't have time for that. Maybe later...
