Glow issue...

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)

What's your projects bit depth?
  03 March 2010
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...

yeah, try 16 or 32. See if it helps.
If it's not fun, what's the point?

Thanks guys, that worked! I tried 16-bit and all looks good.
