Good evening again.

I would like to first of all thank everybody that has been of help to me as I
journey through pov ray. most especially Mr jr and m@b for producing fantastic
advice and codes.

per the subject of matter, I was able to produce some nice-looking scenes with
augmented or virtual objects integrated with images taken from my camera.
however, my issue is that the scene seems to be of low quality or low
resolution. I have read from the documentation and it seems to point to
something called Aliasing. I tried to implement it by reading the documentation
but it doesn't work. is there some sort of easy code I could just place within
my own code that will make the image look better? or is there any other way to
improve the quality of the rendered scene?

not sure how/where the "settings" are when using the UI version of POV-Ray, but
with GNU/Linux you'd supply the corresponding options on the command-line, or
"packaged" as an .ini file.  the page below, section 2.2, discusses the various
options.
<https://wiki.povray.org/content/Documentation:Contents#POV-Ray_Reference>

re resolution - use the '+wNNN' and '+hNNN' switches, and make sure the w:h
ratio is the same as your camera's.

re quality - many options, but I find the following produces good results for
me, in many/most contexts:  '+a +am3 +a0.01 +ac0.9975 +ag1 -j +q11'.


regards, jr.
