I've made a series of pictures by applying gausian blur 100% to a bunch of shapes. They look great on the (old) monitor I'm writing this, but when I test it on a 1080 TV, it looks awful, as you can tell all the edges of the shapes - wereas from here, it works as intended in that the borders melt smoothly into a black background. Does anyone know of a way so that I can have that

Is this for animation purposes?

You can hide the banding by working in 16 bits per channel and adding dither.

Here is your project file converted to 16 bpc and with a dither layer added to the stack: gba with dither 16 bpc.afdesign

And an 8 bpc PNG exported from it: gba with dither 16 bpc, exported to 8 bpc.png
