Sorry to bring up this problem again, but I never saw a good answer to it.
It is referenced in this previous thread.
If I'm missing some simple setting let me know, but when I turn on Depth of Field this very pronounced banding/glitch appears.

It's easy to recreate.

HD Comp
solid layer (make it light gray it shows up a lot more) make 3d
make Camera
turn on depth of field
put camera on an angle
turn the blur level up quite a bit to 950%

It will show up in the lower right corner

(here is the camera info)
Camera Options Zoom
Camera Options Focus Distance
Camera Options Aperture
Camera Options Blur Level
percent 950
Transform Point of Interest
X pixels Y pixels Z pixels
752.412 659.678 -157.189
Transform Position
X pixels Y pixels Z pixels

Do you just see the banding when you preview in After Effects, or do you see it in output files, too?

I'm having the same problem in preview and renders (attached). I have tried outputting at a color depth of 32 bit but I don't have enough memory to create the blur. Please help.
