When adding glow and other blurry fx I get ugly gradient lines..not sure what to call them...basically the transitions from dark to light in the image. It's driving me nuts!

How do i get these fx to appear smooth and clean? does this have to do with the gamma?

Im working with apple's prores codec (hq)

thanks!
Mike

What's your projects bit depth?

8 bits per channel. Should I be using a larger setting?

I noticed something that says "Blend Colors Using 1.0 Gamma"
Should I enable this setting?

I'm working with 1080p. I think the issue I'm having is called banding...

thanks!
