Gradient Banding Problems With Vector Programs

When artwork is created in a vector application such as Illustrator or CorelDraw, gradients can “sometimes” be a problem when separating the image in Photoshop. The reason is how these vector programs render gradients by using a mathematical equation, when compared to a gradient created in Photoshop which is a true raster gradient from the start.

The video discusses the issue along with a quick fix on modifying gradients that contain banding to eliminate problems with mesh interference and moire.
