Image quality after scaling

Recommended Posts

After scaling an image it's resolution decreases.

I need to use resize of the image without its resolution and quality decreasing.

How can I leave the resolution the same?

TransformManager doesn't change the resolution at all. The only way to allow your object to retain more quality is to start out with a much higher resolution image and have it initially scaled down so that when it increases in scale, it still has enough resolution to look good.

Have you tried adding smoothing? I just found out about this handy little line of code that you apply to a Bitmap instance. It made all images look a lot better when I scaled them up.


example -


var bmd:BitmapData = new BitmapData(mc.width, mc.height, true, 0x00000000);


var bmdCopy:Bitmap = new Bitmap(bmd);


bmdCopy.smoothing = true;


var holderMC:MovieClip = new MovieClip();
