Is there a way to smooth the borders?
No, the DCW comes in one resolution.
What do you mean? To reduce the numbers of points that define the borders (i.e. to have a lower resolution line)?
Nah, more like a fuzzy contour (maybe some gaussian filtering near the border or something)
…Or just some shading using a slightly different -J, -X and -Y?
I think I don’t fully understand you. Would you share an example?
I thought I was doing groundbreaking stuff here. Guess not.
Yours is better
