[HELP] Questions about some graphics options

Recommended Posts

1. Regarding Soft Shadows setting: Which option is the best one? "Nvidia PCSS" or "Softest"? (I use nVidia GPU) Can someone take comparison pics?

 

2. Regarding Ambient Occlusion setting: What's the difference between the lowest (OFF) and the highest option? Can someone take comparison pics? And what does Ambient Occlusion change, exactly?

 

3. Regarding Post FX setting: What is it, exactly? What does it do? And what's the difference between the lowest and the highest option? Can someone take comparison pics?

 

Thank you in advance.

 

P.S: I cannot play GTA 5 on my current system. I'm getting a new PC in ~3 weeks. So that's why I posted those questions.

Softest is the best, nvidia pcss is blury and has a big performance hit.

Ambient occlusion is important, put it on hghest !! just do it (it doesnt eat the framerate)

Post fx, i dont know. put it on medium...

-In the documents folder/Rockstar games/GTA V, there is this settings file. In it it says :

 

<MSAA value="2" />
<MSAAFragments value="0" />
<MSAAQuality value="0" />

 

What is MSAA quality value ???

And why there isnt any option to change it ingame ??

I have MSAA @ 2x + MFAA enabled in Nvidia control panel btw...
