Is it possible to truly disable dithering for gradients? I only found the option in the performance settings, which is however limited to the preview rather than the final result. Meaning as soon as the gradient/s in question are rasterised the dithering is back on, which leads to undesirable results.

The current Affinity apps have no option to disable dithering when vector gradients are rasterised, while, conversely, they have no option to enable dithering of soft basic raster brushes or Layer Effects (fx).

Fortunately, the absence of dithering of fx provides a couple of ways to achieve undithered gradients:

  1. the fx Gradient Overlay
  2. give an invisible fx, such as a Colour Overlay with zero opacity, to an object to prevent dithering of a vector gradient in the object or any children of the object. To prevent dithering of vector gradients throughout a document, simply put the entire object hierarchy in a Group or Layer (note the capital L) and give the Group/Layer a Colour Overlay fx with zero opacity. Note that when applying the Rasterise command to an object with fx, you must clear the "Preserve layer FX" checkbox in the Rasterise dialog to achieve the undithered result.

Oh nice, that works like a charm 🤩 

Thank you very much for that workaround! Since I created some Colour Palletes via Posterize and Gradient Map the first option wouldn't have worked for me, but the second is perfect!
