Summary0001686: Antialiasing doesn't work when element has DropShadowEffect
DescriptionHi guys,

the DropShadowEffect is awesome but I've noticed a little issue with the rounded corners.
See the attached screenshots, pay attention to the rounded labels such as "PvP", "OFFICIAL", etc. I've tested with MSAA and PPAA. Both don't work.

I can remove rounded corners for now but I wish it could be fixed (especially if the fix is straightforward).

Good job on the DropShadowEffect overall as it allows me to add depth into the UI where necessary, and improve the text effects! :-)

TagsNo tags attached.

This is probably a silly thing but we locked 3.0.0, we will solve it in 3.0.1. Thanks for your feedback, as always!

I've been doing some tests and it looks like PPAA is not disabled when using effects. I created a xamltoy showing it:
I don't remember changing anything related in our latest releases, but could you please check again to confirm you are still having this issue?

It's broken for both PPAA and MSAA as I've just checked.
The screenshot above is without the drop shadow effect and the MSAA works fine there.

So those images are using MSAA only, PPAA is not enabled when Views are created, right?
I think it makes more sense to me now, what is happening is that offscreen textures are created without the correct MSAA samples.
Can you check if, before initializing the Renderer, you are calling RenderDevice.SetOffscreenSampleCount() to the appropriate number of samples?

Have you considered using PPAA only or do you need MSAA for anything else in your game?
