unhandled

#1

Hi @nathanletwory,

this customers asks why cycles produces these hard gradients? He is asking if this is a 8 Bit color depth issue?

That is the result of conversion from render buffer to half-float. Very light gradients can cause this effect. Rendering to HDR would be a solution, but unfortunately that isn’t possible yet.

At some point I’ll work on blitting the full float result Cycles already creates as such directly to the viewport.
