I wish the whole game had that effect, that just blows my mind
That trailer reminded me of one of the boss stages in Wario Ware Twisted, it featured stages from Super Mario Bros recreated in a similar way.

huzba, your image shows normal antialiasing. Normal aliasing and sub-pixel antialiasing are different in that the latter literally increases the horizontal display resolution by x3 in a primitive way because it treats each of the three sub-pixels separately, rather than as a whole. Normal aa is only theoretically "sub-pixel" but not literally. That's why I think it's best if the term "sub-pixel" is reserved only for what you call "funky RGB pixel trickery".



Also, "after images" = "antialiasing", by definition.

the head is still moving just uhhh 2? pixels over 8 frames. So isn't that like subpixel AA, but without counting any funky RGB pixel trickery.

That's sub-pixel animation, not sub-pixel AA. Sub-pixel AA uses components smaller than one pixel to anti-alias... in tiny ways. Sub-pixel animation uses anti-aliasing in animation to make it appear as though things are moving in increments of less than one pixel. In that regard, Ptoing's avatar does turn out to be animated in that fashion, even if it wasn't intentional.

I've just finished watching "MISSION to MARS..."  :'( ???





don't bother... it's crap... I wish someone had told me before I started watching it... I could maybe have sorted out my freewheel hub on my beloved mountain bike.  :mean:

I still cannot understand what people see in that game, how boring.
