+1 for optional Split View, if it’s possible :)

I think it’s only annoying if you were used to how it was before. But even then, after a few days you get used to it too. So I don’t think it’s a big issue after all and for now probably best solution the way it is currently. :)

But true, most people probably use Artstudio Pro in full screen most of the time. If I need second window I usually use the “floating” one that you can use in full screen apps too. But maybe some people still need split screen, I don’t know 🤷‍♀️ It’s hard to please everyone

 So I actually asked via email and got a response from the developer. I guess that makes it all clear now. Thought I’d post it here too, in case someone ever has the same question again :D

‘“Remember Resize Interpoation” - save “Interpolation” value used in in Image > Resize Image, even after you restart the app. If off - Interpolation will be set to “LInear” after app relaunch.
“Remember Transform Interpolation” - remember Interpolation used in Edit > Transform

Maximum Velocity - it is used when using brushes with “Velocity” dynamics, for example Pens > Velocipen. It says how fast you have to move your Pencil/Finger to achieve the max dynamics effect.
In Velocipen - how fast you have to paint to achieve the minimum stroke size.”

Oh I see, thanks for this explanation! But I tried just now with transform and resize tool and it didn't make difference. Like it remembered the interpolation that I used before even with the setting turned off? (Tried on current and new documents)

And I'm relieved I'm not the only one confused by the velocity setting lol

I just went through the preferences of Artstudio Pro again and I’m abit confused/ don’t understand what some of the options do or mean.

First one is Artstudio>Preferences>Tools>Remember resize/transform interpolation

What does that mean and how does it make a difference wether this options are turned on or off? And is it better to keep them on or off?

And the other one is Artstudio>Preferences>Apple Pencil>Maximum velocity

I tried it on maximum (100) and minimum (1). But I don’t understand what this setting does and I couldn’t feel a difference.

Thanks in advance :)

Usually if you can already see the banding on your screen, it will be even more obvious when printing

Color banding is generally a thing that happens with digitalart, mostly when painting large gradients without texture especially with the round brush or airbrush.

An easy way to fix it is to duplicate the layer or to select affected area and „add layer via copy“. Then add surface blur to it until most of the banding dissapears. Then you can add a mask, paint with black, to remove it from areas you don't want the blur, and then if needed, add a new layer to paint back in any details that might have been lost.

Another/additional way already mentioned is to add a new layer on top, fill with 50% grey, set to overlay, and add noise until banding mostly dissapears, then add mask again to remove from unwanted areas, and adjust layer opacity if needed.

Next way is to add any grey textured layer on top, set to overlay and adjust opacity, erase, adjust or add mask as needed.

Final and most time consuming way is to paint over affected area with smaller or more texture brushes.

And to generally prevent it from happening again, you can either avoid painting gradients with very large brushes, and paint in with smaller strokes instead, or use more textured brushes.

Hope that helps :)
