Why do my view ports lose renderworks quality?

Recommended Posts


On my design layer I can use final quality render works and it looks perfect. When I create a view port I get a very low res version of the rendering, not suitable for presentation.

Can anyone help?

Try changing the dpi of the Sheet Layer. The default is 72 which doesn't give a good result.

A dpi of 144 will give you a much better result.

You can go higher but the Viewport updating time will increase accordingly.

Anyone know the "native" ppi of the design layer renderings? Is Design Layer presenting info at system screen resolution?

I sometimes jump up the VP resolution to 360 and it's not even close to the DL view. 600 or 1200 starts to get there, but remains more pixelated or aliased than DL view. And render update is time consuming.
