I am trying to bring in a large background image as a 'set' for my characters and I'm having trouble as this is the first time that I have tried using VS this way. I have tried bringing it in as an SVG and a Jpeg (even worse!) and both are coming through at a low res, even though the image itself is a huge vector.
Hi Mike, (I started the thread above) I have tried your suggestion to no avail. I am very familiar with VS and creating SVGs so I am at a loss as to why this is happening. The attached image is zoomed at 100 percent. As you can see the background image quality is very poor.
Here you go.
That does help, thank you. I found however that after I import the background image at high-res then save it and go out and lower the import res value the image then re-pixelates when I go back into the scribe. Why is this?
That is not how it worked for me at all. The quality should not go down unless you re-import the image after setting the quality lower. Here is what I did and the results:
1) started videoscribe
2) set quality to 1080
3) opened a blank scribe
4) imported the image- it was a little blurry
5) saved and close the scribe
6) set quality to 3000
7) opened the same scribe containing the 1080 quality image
8) imported new copy of the image at the same size. it was very sharp, and the first one remained a little blurry
9) saved and close the scribe
10) set quality to 600
11) opened the same scribe again containing both previous images
12) imported the image at the same size again. it was very blurry.
Now I have all three images in the scribe. The one imported at 600 is very blurry, the one imported at 1080 is a little blurry and the one imported at 3000 is very sharp.
You may need to try it again, be sure that you have saved the scribe with the higher resolution image and make sure that you open the same scribe after reducing the quality setting.
Note: I don't know if it makes a difference but I import them from their directory on my hard drive and not from "recently used" images menu.

I repeated your process to the letter, (and I was and have continued to import each SVG from outside VS, not recent images) and I am still having the same problem. I have opened and closed the program, and conducted the text in a new scribe. Still at this stage I can only retain good quality by leaving the setting at 3000px input size. See image attached with the three resolutions overlapping.
Interestingly, only the background image is affected by the import resolution settings after they are changed, see attached.
I am using the latest version 2.3.5. I just reinstalled it. I will keep trying, thanks for your help, I actually did think I was dealing with customer support, apologies!
Thanks for your help.
I just downgraded to your version and it has solved the problem. Thanks again.
Afternoon, we're doing some testing on this at the moment and our lead tester will be speaking to our lead developer tomorrow to get the bug written up to be worked on.
