Anti-aliasing settings?

I'm looking for a decent way for getting modo files into MW. So I'm lookin into LW.

Now, while watching the "controlling depth of field" video, I noticed that there's anti-aliasing settings in the plugin for LW. What gives? I thought MW didn't need these?

Maxwell doesn't need them, but Lightwave won't enable the DOF controls (focal distance and f-stop) on the camera unless AA is set to "medium" or better. We use the built-in controls for these attributes instead of adding custom Maxwell controls to the camera because some people like to make quick previews of the effect using the built-in renderer or F-Prime.
