Smoothing issue
on Jun 22, 2011 at 4:14:19 pm

Hi,

whenever I use blur or mask feather on any solid or imported layer into after effects I get patterns in the layer instead of a smooth finish and those patterns make the whole composition look bad. I tried changing my project from 8bits to 32 bits but it doesn't help much can anyone please help telling me what I am doing wrong.

Thanks

Could you provide examples of these patterns of which you speak? That'll make it a lot easier to figure out what you're talking about.

Hi Michael,

Here is a sample

It is a solid layer that had a mask applied to it with 300px feather.
Is it normal? Can it be fixed?

Looks like banding to me. You can add a very little bit of noise to help break it up a bit, or you can try a third-party De-band effect, such as the ones in GenArts Sapphire or FxFactory / PHYX Cleaner.

Agreed: banding. Add noise.
