Pixelated background

Recommended Posts


I'm having a weird pixelated background in some of my files... I think it mostly appears when I've got embedded pictures in the main file. It also happens when I add a live perspective effect (from Photo) to an element. The files still work OK but the "effect" – which animates as I scroll – is pretty disturbing to look at. 

Has anybody got the same issue?

Try not having the Effect and effected layer in a group all on its lonesome.

I've also got this "effect" with other setups that I can't replicate.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.

Hi, the same pixelated BG also by me. But only when the image with perspective filter is placed outside of the artboard.

I've got also another issue – by duplicating/pasting the layer with persp.f. the position of handles is moved.

And of course… what about the thumbnails of filters? They look weird big.
