Instead of using the cirle effect try it with the Track Matte effect. See if that will make a difference?
Thanks for the reply. I checked it out a little via a few tutorials, doesn't really look all that suitable? And wouldn't I still need to use a 'blur' of some sort? Sorry if I misunderstood.
Would a programme like 'Colour Finesse' be able to elegantly and efficiently execute this simple task? Or is there perhaps some way to avoid the banding and striping in the first place?
Thanks again though,
Haha, oh my that does look smooth!! I don't suppose you can link to a tutorial covering this off? Not to worry if not, I'll take a look around, will try it out and let you know.
What blur was used, out of interest?
Many thanks for the quick reply!
In the end, I just dipped the opacity from 100 to 89, seems to hold off most of the striping.
Thanks for your input, and I enjoyed your tutorial, it was clear and made it seem very simple.
Make your Vignette in Photoshop (or the like) and export in a format w/ Transparency for use in your project. This should be less taxing on your machine as well as get rid of the 'banding'.
