I'm using Illustrator for painting (no printing) and using a lot of raster effects (mostly blur). I am also using the effects for masking as well.
The thing is that the raster effects look fine on normal preview, but on pixel preview (and when saved for web), the effects look very degraded. It seems it only happens when the effect is masked, and look worse when masked multiple times through multiple layer trees, which is essential for my work. So, that is the context why I am asking.
So, I would like to know if I can save-for-web (PNG) the file that looks exactly like how the image is at x1 zoom on Illustator without pixel preview turned on, instead of how it looks on pixel preview.
The file was created as web preset and set to RGB.
