Post effects include things like blur, in this case to simulate distant objects being out of focus to the naked eye, and ambient occlusion lighting, in this case to simulate haze. I always turn off all post effects because the rig I now have is not robust enough to run them. I really don't care for blur and ambient occlusion lighting anyway. Many games use it too excessively IMO.

Is post-effects just basically anti-aliasing?

No, anti-aliasing is for smoothing out jagged lines. Post effects has to do with haze and stimulating long distance blur like six_gun said

Yeah AA is edge smoothing. It's not added after rendering like post effects are, which is why they're called that. Post effects can be motion blur, depth of field (aiming blur), and HDR too.

Yes but without them you can see better and more detail.

IMO, the blur adds to the dreamlike effect because your not really there. You're in a memory.

True, but its amazing how crisp everything looks with it turned off... post up some of a crowded area so we can see the difference.

I'd do it myself but I'm at work http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif
