Anti-Aliasing (AA) refers to the smoothing of aliased, or jagged, lines when displayed on a computer monitor.

Without Anti-Aliasing

With Anti-Aliasing

Anti-aliasing in Unreal Engine 4 is performed in post processing using FXAA, which is an efficient GPU MLAA implementation. This method solves most causes of aliasing artifacts, but cannot fully prevent temporal aliasing.

Other techniques: UE4 currently supports MSAA only for a few editor 3d primitives (e.g. 3D Gizmo) and Temporal AA.

The feature can be disabled by the show flag Post-process Anti-aliasing.

Welcome to the new Unreal Engine 4 Documentation site!

We're working on lots of new features including a feedback system so you can tell us how we are doing. It's not quite ready for use in the wild yet, so head over to the Documentation Feedback forum to tell us about this page or call out any issues you are encountering in the meantime.

We'll be sure to let you know when the new system is up and running.
