Recommended Posts

I have imported a .png image, I put it on a dark background (filled rectangle) the edges around the image (object in the .png) has jagged edges how do I eliminate this jagged edge problem? Thanks.

Hmm, at first I would perhaps check if it is not just a display problem (Preferences > View Quality > Bilinear) … see my example, a combined screen shot with an imported star image in PNG format. On the left side you will see the “Nearest Neighbour” appearance, on the right side the “Bilinear” one … please note the jagged edges on the left one.


Does that help?  :)

Thanks for the file. Those jagged edges are coming from the PNG image itself. You have to mask them or refine the image in some way to get rid of them.

There's a couple ways to go about this but i'm not sure which one gives the best results without trying first.

I don't know the answer to this but... I did find one choice in Poser that helped a bit But I would still like to know how to get rid of this kind of problem when it occurs in Photo. Thanks for any ideas.Still a PNG export with HDRi optimized turned on in the Poser renderer.
