Exporting renderworks image not rendering image properly

Question

I have VW 2016. If I render an image using custom render setting it looks great on screen.  If I then try to export this as an image file it renders but the final image is terrible and looks worse than a fast render (but takes an age to render)

What am I doing wrong? I have tried to export using different file types but with the same outcome. I'm render at 300dpi in the settings..

 

Thanks

Create a viewport of the view to be rendered on a sheet layer. Set that sheet layer to 300DPI. Once the viewport renders, export that to an Image file at 300DPI and compare the results. 

You CAN export from the design layer but this normally means waiting for another re-render and its resolution can only be controlled by the setting for DPI under File > Document Settings > Document Preferences > Resolution under the Output section. This sets the same DPI for all exported images from design layers.

Another neat trick is once the viewport is rendered you can do a copy(cmd v) and open Preview(on Mac) and paste from clipboard.  It's a nice time saving work around, and you should still get the higher DPI setting when pasted into Preview.
