After Effects/Illustrator Gradient Problem
on Apr 3, 2012 at 7:14:46 pm

Hello. Whenever I bring an Illustrator file that has a radial gradient, it suffers some sort of banding issue. Here is a screen capture.



If you click on the photo, you can see the issue on the man's torso and the blanket. I have no idea what causes this.

In your project window, right-click on your Illustrator file and choose "Interpret Footage." At the bottom of the Interpret Footage dialog, click on "More Options" and set Antialiasing to "More Accurate." Probably won't completely eliminate the problem (Illustrator gradients are almost always bandy) but it should help.

Adding noise to your gradients will help eliminate banding.

Under the ramp settings in After Effects ass "Ramp Scatter".
That should help.
