High Quality texture filtering activation - HOW?
 
I gather the Windows NVidia driver has a "High Quality Texture Filtering" toggle.

http://www.hexus.net/content/item.php?item=7177&page=8

How do I activate this setting in the Linux NVidia drivers?

Thanks.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the link you provided is to a Direct3D game. Linux doesn't have/use Direct3D.

No, something may be wrong with your browser. That links points to an NVidia GeForce 8800 GTX review, specifically the page on the Anisotropic texture filtering Image Quality Analysis. OpenGL/Direct3D is irrelevant here.

The question is, do the Linux nVidia drivers provide access to this high-quality texture filtering toggle, as the Windows nVidia drivers do, and if so where?

Thanks.

Nvidia-settings allows you to adjust aniso tropic filtering in the opengl settings.

Ah! Thanks for the tip! Doing some testing it appears that flipping "Image Settings" from "Quality" (default) to "High Quality" does the trick. The aniso texture filter sparkling isn't totally cured, but it's greatly reduced!

(Before I was focused on the Antialiasing Settings space which mentions anisotropic texture filtering -- in particular, the Texture Sharpening toggle, which wasn't doing anything to improve the problem. Image Settings sounded like full-window ops. Probably should be named "Texture Settings". But my bad for not trying all the knobs.

And nvidia-settings supports batch-loading of this setting from a config file, so I can auto-set this on boot-up -- excellent! We'll be using this on our multi-node rendering systems at work ASAP.

Thanks for your help, Thunderbird!
