Rasterize gradient

Recommended Posts



you appear to be quite zoomed in there. until rasterised gradient are shown as vector so they will appears smoother at any level, but also shows at a sub pixel level. So when it is rasterised it can only show 1 colour per pixel, with pixels being larger than your gradient bands in your attached example. Rasterising a gradient also adds dither to reduce the banding effect which will give it that slightly random spread.
