Subtle Gradient Banding with "Bilinear" and "Dither" enabled

Recommended Posts

Technically this isn't a bug, however I noticed gradients still have subtle banding even when "Bilinear" and "Dither" options are enabled. See the attached image comparing the exact same gradients in AD and Sketch.

 

Can this be resolved?

Hmm, that’s strange. I cannot reproduce this even when using RGB 8-bit. There is considerably less banding in my exported file (right gradient). Are you seeing the banding in the exported PNG files or in the application context only?  :unsure:

@A_B_C The banding is the same for the document view and exported PNG. Additionally, I noticed the doc view has considerably more gradient noise compared to Sketch.

Just to make sure … you selected “View Quality: Bilinear” and “Dither Gradients” in the Preferences, and despite these settings you are seeing the banding in the gradients? Well, that is weird …  :wacko:

 

(Maybe resetting the app would work. If you want to reset the entire program press and hold Ctrl while launching the app and tick the checkboxes you are interested in. But this is just guesswork, sorry … I mean, not the resetting process … this one does indeed work, but I am not sure, if it will solve your problem …)

@A_B_C Yes, those preferences are enabled and I've restarted app. The banding is much worse when those prefs are off, as expected.

 

The banding I see is very subtle, but still noticeable, especially compared to Sketch. Same with document view "noise" which I presume is to reduce the banding.
