    Default 16bit RGB export formats

    I am having problems with colour banding (especially when I make bigger prints) due to the fact that Xara only exports in 8bit RGB formats. Any possibility to have 16bit export formats in the (near) future?

    I have tried exporting to pdf in th highest possible quality but I do not see any improvement (apart from
    it taking hours to generate from my images).

    I added this request in the "
    2016 - 2017 new feature requests"-thread but I fear that one is kinda dead, so I made a new thread.

    it would be nice

    export alone won't cure the banding - the gradient stepping will need to be upped to 16bit otherwise you will still be exporting 8bit info...

    Hmm I thought that was clear but obviously not . Everything that has shading in it (including transparencies, blends et cetera). I would be happy if 16bit export would happen, for me it's less important to have it on screen as well.

    Fred - Here are some articles on banding in gradient fills https://duckduckgo.com/?q=how+to+avo...s&t=ffsb&ia=qa

    If this link does not work from your location, this is the search phrase I used how to avoid banding in gradient fills
