	Can I ask why do you want it?  Anti-aliasing is related to removing artifacts 
of edges on the 2D image plane, whereas this will screw up depth maps - you 
don't want the depth of the edge of a ball to interpolate to the back plane 
miles away as it drops off.  It *should* be grotty.

	But to answer your question, yup - just add it in the Deep Raster section of 
a ROP, look at the default 'minmax min' filter that's put in there as a 
default for depth, then alter it to any of the other options available.

	Cheers,

	J.C.
