    I'm guessing it does, going by this:
    It looks similar to Doom/Uncharted 4/UE4 TAA to me.

    Honestly, i kinda wish this mod lands him a job at CA. Playing A:I without shader/specular aliasing was on my wishlist in the "never going to happen" category. The only obvious issue with the mod currently is that the taa shits itself when you have dof on screen. Overall, I love how taa brings out all the nuance of the material shading in different surfaces in A:I that was already there but most of the time ruined by shimmering :)

    From the modder himself on reddit, talking a bit about the implementation:

    He also says that a similar mod for RotTR is possible but he's not interested in the game.

    Attempted to do a little Alien Isolation Deep Color comparison. The main menu seems to be a great way to find some repeatable banding for it.

    RGB 8 bpc

    YCbCr 422 12 bpc

    Some reduction in banding here but you need side by side shots to tell.

    YCbCr 422 8 bpc
    This mode looks awful with deep color disabled. If you see it in motion it's quite the animated banding experience. ;) I wonder if the game elevates the display mode to 10 bpc in addition to rendering at 30bpp?

    Video captures would be neat but that tends to be YUV 4:2:0 so not useful.

    I had this encounter today.
    No.jpg

    Why do I say "no" without thinking if something like this happens? Probably I would say "no" even in reality before something really bad will occur.

    Reaction of denial to something you simply don't want to happen. Fairly natural :)

    Yes and for me no swear words as one often hears in movies.

    Time for everyone to replay this game :

    Life Savers v1.0
    This mod overhauls most of the game’s weapons and tools, making them more effective against the alien.
    Now the stun baton will stun it briefly, or even scare it away, and smoke bombs do a better job of obscuring your movements.
    https://www.moddb.com/games/alien-isolation/downloads/life-savers-v10

    Unpredictable Alien
    This mod mixes up its AI to make it more unpredictable.
    It removes the ‘leash’ that keeps it near Ripley, giving it more freedom to scare the shit out of you.
    https://www.moddb.com/mods/unpredictable-alien-mod/downloads/unpredictable-alien

    Motion Tracker Remover
    Do you find evading the xenomorph too easy? Then try playing without the help of Ripley’s motion tracker.
    This basic mod simply stops it from working, meaning you’ll never really know how far away, or close, the creature really is.
    https://www.moddb.com/games/alien-isolation/downloads/remove-the-motion-tracker

    Flaming Bolt Gun
    A modification for the bolt gun, making it more powerful and adding secondary flame rounds.
    There’s an acid version too if you’d prefer. Interestingly, these mods also make it so that, when attacked, the alien’s acidic blood damages Ripley.
    https://www.moddb.com/games/alien-isolation/downloads/flaming-boltgun-v20

    Overpowered Pistol
    This pistol mod is comically overpowered, but ideal for anyone who wants to make enemy encounters less stressful.
    It kills humans and androids in one hit, and damages the alien so much that it runs away, similar to the flamethrower.
    https://www.moddb.com/games/alien-isolation/downloads/overpowered-pistol

    If you want to make the game look prettier, try this mod by AngelGraves, which adds an extra ‘super’ option to a few graphics settings.
    It improves, among other things, LOD range and reflections, and adds 4K resolution shadow maps.
