Visible Banding in CSS gradient


  • I am observing heaving banding when using CSS to create a gradient. I even used the trick of transitioning to a transparent color that is the same as the background color in hopes to reduce the banding. No dice!

    Can anyone help me? Is it possible to use a CSS gradient w/o banding?

    Here is the CSS code I am using. I am also using a background image. If I eliminate the image, I observe the same banding issues. Thanks!

        background-color: #222222;
        background-image: url(/images/imageLoading.png), -ms-linear-gradient(top, rgba(68,68,68,1) 0%, rgba(34,34,34,0) 100%);
        background-size: 100%;
        background-repeat: no-repeat;
        background-% 20%;

  • Checkout all this fixes for different browsers:

      background: -webkit-linear-gradient(red, blue); /* For Safari 5.1 to 6.0 */
      background: -o-linear-gradient(red, blue); /* For Opera 11.1 to 12.0 */
      background: -moz-linear-gradient(red, blue); /* For Firefox 3.6 to 15 */
      background: linear-gradient(red, blue); /* Standard syntax */

  • This is for winjs apps. I don't have to worry about other browsers. With that said, I have tried the standard syntax and that also did not fix things.
