I know this is an old and timely problem. But can anyone help me or point mein the right direction. I have created a BKGRND screen in PS, it contains a gradient. It's a reddish color gradient that is the BKGRND when some print work and logos appear onscreen. My problem occurs when i bring this file into FCP. Once this still is brought into the video world, it has a banding. The banding goes along with gradient, so the banding occurs in a circular motion. (Small circles in the middle and larger circles on the outside). Does anyone know how i can fix this? Do i need to compress it differently?? Right now I'm bringing it into FCP as a .png, is this wrong? Any help anyone can give would be much appreciated.
P.S. I've also posted this on the FCP section of the forum page
