I am working with scribe that incorporates lots of svg's (from AI) with sufficient resolution - and the rendered output (1920x1080) looks great. No loss.
However, if I use a source image that is exactly that resolution 1920x1080 (intended as a full-screen element) - and set its scale to full screen 1:1 (by scaling up the bounding box of that element once imported into the videoscribe workspace), the display/render quality is significantly reduced (fuzzy) in the final output. However, (again) - the source image is very clean at 1920x1080 in photoshop, and subsequently in AI where it is processed as an svg - also at 1920x1080. The loss is introduced in VideoScribe.
I'm sure there must be a workaround for this....
I will give that a try!

Not having much luck with this.
I have attached several files to evaluate:
Both of these files have more than enough resolution (zoom in AI to confirm):
Both were brought into VideoScribe and set up side-by-side in this example:
If you look at the two images in the VideoScribe workspace, they actually look just fine. In fact if you [PLAY] in the workspace, it still looks fine. But once it is RENDERED (sho.co), the image quality on the right is drastically reduced – and softer than the image on the left.
Hopefully (as usual) you have a genius solution for this –

Hi Mike -
Thanks for the detailed response.
Yes- the problem is only showing up in the rendered result. Resolution looks fine in the VideoScribe workspace - and even while playing back in real time within the application.
But the rendered result is fuzzy - image on right:
I have tried more tests, and set the DEFAULT IMAGE QUALITY to the HIGHEST setting (4000px) - and re-imported the svg at that setting (I assume that is what you mean by "import quality" - under the gear icon - lower right of main screen?). Even at the highest setting the rendered quality does not look any different.
In my case (for this project) Cropping the images and rebuilding would defeat the purpose of the large image strategy... there are many components set and aligned at this full screen aspect. There are a lot of drawing/ erasing/redrawing of components all of which are carefully aligned (pixel-perfect) in close registration. Cropping the different elements would make it impossible to align these images as closely as they need to be.... I tried that earlier and it was a mess. This solution solves my alignment problems - but unfortunately I have rendering issues when the images are full-screen.
Again, the source images and svg's have plenty of resolution, so it seems there is a bug?
Are there alternative render settings that I can apply at SHO.CO?
Would an alternative be to render FRAMES?
And how is that done? I only see an option for rendering mp4 @sho.co.
Thanks again for your help!
David, sorry for the late entry into this thread. Have tried to take a look at that Sho.co link and it's not working for me. Have you uploaded the it as Private because it looks that way to me? If you could change it to unlisted I should be able to see it then.
In terms of the question about Sho.co the video is only available as mp4 when you choose Sho.co. If you would like to see it in a different version you will need to render locally where mov, wmv, avi and also PNG/JPG image sequences become an option. To use those options you can click the disc icon next to the share video online option.
