Gradients still dithered on export

Recommended Posts

I'm wanting to use gradients and other features in Affinity to generate displacement maps for shoe tooling (bottom of shoe etc.) and such, but upon export I'm getting dithering.


I have my settings set to not dither gradients though. The image shows what gradients look like in affinity, and then what they look like on export (this happens to be an 32bit exr but it's happening on all images).


If I have just one gradient layer, no transparency or blend modes- then it exports correctly. If I have two layers though and any transparency or blending modes enabled, I get dithering.


I was really excited about the higher bit depth in affinity for gradients just for this use, so it's a bit of a bummer to find this issue.


Hopefully it can either be fixed OR I have to check some other setting to get it working right.

Thanks for the work around Owner. I'll put this to use. Hopefully this can be fixed so we don't need the work around, but it's nice to have all the same.

Do you know if it works for symbols too? If you put a symbol in a group, then add the filter does it work?
