Gaussian Blur fills bounding box?

hello:                                                                                                                                Level: Intermediate  OS: (sadly) Windows 8   Ia: Cs6

 

 

i just made a circle and then applied a Gaussian Blur to it but rather than getting a nice Round blur the result is square

 

is this possibly the result of the ongoing issues with the AMD - Win8 - Adobe thing?

 

it's not as bad when i use a slight blur but for what i would like to do i need a larger blur

 

also, i was wondering if anyone knows if the NVIDIA GPU's are having as much of a issue as the AMD b/c i have a few more days to return this puter

 

or does anyone know rather it's just a Win8 thing & no matter the processor as long as i'm run'n W8 i'll have these problems?

 

i have already updated drivers and set GPU to Basic

 

your thoughts, info, ideas or whatever are greatly appreciated

also, can you see faint lines through the image? i have no idea rather it's my laptop's screen or if it's something with Ia

 

Thanx again!

    See "Document Raster Effects Settings". There you can add an amount of space around the object.

    Define "lines".

     

    Other than the hard edges resulting from the Document Raster Effect setting, I don't see any "lines" in your gradient.

    I see lines in that gradient.

     

    Probably that's the reason why my optician recently told me to consult an oculist again …

    Kara,

     

    i have no idea rather it's my laptop's screen

     

    I believe it may be. This may be a good reason to consider your returning the laptop.

     

    You could also try to create different gradients, radial and maybe linear att different angles and see.

    You are welcome, Kara.

     

    Long time indeed; you seem to have been more busy elsewhere.

    I'm not seeing any lines.

     

     

    But my eyes aren't as sharp as they were a few years ago. I suppose I could be missing them.
