Rendering system in Flax Engine uses the full power of latest Graphics APIs (DirectX 12, Vulkan, etc.) pipeline to create rich effects including deferred shading, global illumination, full-scene reflections, and post processing.
Single frame rendering flow is shown in a graph below.
Upscaling with Rendering Percentage
Flax supports performing scene rendering in lower resolution and upscaling the image into the window backbuffer. This allows to improve game performance at slower devices. It can be configurated via
RenderingPercentage property (per
SceneRenderTask). To change the resolution scale for the game viewport use
MainRenderTask.Instance.RenderingPercentage (you can preview it in Graphics Quality window in Editor). It's a scale of the rendering resolution relative to the output dimensions. If lower than 1 the scene and postprocessing will be rendered at a lower resolution and upscaled to the output backbuffer.
Flax performs upscaling by default using Catmull-Rom filtering with 9-taps. For more advanced upscaling you can use open-source AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution plugin for Flax Engine.
