Let us know what you think about these command line tools in the comments below.

  • Andrew T. Brinkman

    What is ssa?

    • Pras

      It’s probably a mistake, should be SSAO but someone made a mistake and put both, then everyone just copied and pasted from that original mistake. Could be wrong, but otherwise I have never heard of it!

    • Jonathan

      Nah. I believe it’s some sort of shader anti aliasing.

      • Andrew T. Brinkman

        I’ve never heard of such a thing. Aliasing happens at the edges of polygons, a shader is what the polygon has on its surface, not the edge. Can you explain more? It’s not well documented online

    • SSA allows for upsampling of the video. Example, 1080P upsampled to 4K (assuming your card can upsample that high.)
