Let me first tell you how i prepare my project when i am finished with the animation.

I render PNG sequence and then i render h264 with some noise in 16 bit and everything looks good, but… This time i can’t remove banding. I’ve searched the forum, read all the posts and nothing helps.

Project has a lot of small gradient (gradients with small difference in colors) and i need it to look god but i just can’t render h264 to look nice… :/

Felt, Inlinfe, anyone?

Hey Mo, probably the color values you are blending are too similar. Try introducing a small percentage of another color in the mix. It will be barely visible to the eye but make sure it is there. You will be surprised how much this helps. If you are using the ramp effect you could slighlty increase the “scatter” value, say 25% or more if you wish.

Other than that, it’s the well known procedure – 16 bit, add grain and render an image sequence, add noise (or grain again) on top of the image sequence when exporting the FLV or the h264 compressed file.

This works for me.

Well introducing a hint of orange solved the problem… wow.

But when i render h264 from the list it’s ok but when i use MOV container with h264 it’s bad… And i need MOV h264 for Videohive…

What settings do you use Inlife for MOV h264?

I’ve never used h264 man. Probably somebody else could jump in with a suggestion.

Quicktime with photo-jpg works fine. Setting it to “screen” does the job most of the times so I rarely render with alpha.
