Here is a Background object for animating the Workspace Background settings and or to Save your settings to scene.

For Animating this object, enable the Background Attributes that you want to keyframe from the Keying panel first before setting keyframes. Select the Reset button to reset all the default Background settings. Select the Dock button to open the Background panel in the Stack/Settings. You can Ctrl + drag the titlebar so that it floats above all other windows. The Default - Main view is set for the Default layout or similar. If you save this object with your scene the script will run when you open the scene and apply your settings.

Layouts
Here are some if not all of the standard Layouts for your convenience.
Important: Before you start using the Background object for your desired view, open up the Stack/Settings and select your view to ensure that the Background panel has been created by trueSpace7.6. Just test it to see if it works first in Settings. FYI: when you first open some views the Background panel is not created until you open the Stack/Settings. If you get a Windows warning sound and or Warning message this is the reason.

Anti-aliasing goes up to 8?

Ah right I forgot about that. I guess it depends on your video card.
So None to Level 4 should work on mostly all cards.
Level 5 thru Level 8 if your card supports it.

NVIDIA cards support AA of up to 8. ATI seem to support less, based on the reports I've had in from users.


HTH!

Not mine...
"The numbers all go to eleven. Look, right across the board, eleven, eleven, eleven..."

As a trivia question, why does the icon for 'no anti-aliasing' read '1X'... shouldn't it be '0X'?

We now return you to your normal trueBlue programming...

To do with the sampling..No AA means tS renders the image out at 1x the size i.e. full size with no resampling. 2xAA means rendering out at twice the size then shrinking down/resampling etc.


0x would effectively render nothing.


Make sense? tS AA is not the fastest so I always render at 4x the size of image I need then re-size in Photoshop.

Thanks to trueBlue too

Mine actually only supports up to 3 which is weird because I have an ATI Radeon 3850 HD card...

That should represent, 2x, 4x and 8x multisampling on ATI cards. What type of filtering for those samples is determined by driver settings.
