Subject Re: Rendering quality (subsampling)
Date Thu, 22 Dec 2011 08:29:27 GMT
I'm not a specialist on these matters, but AFAIK Batik basically uses
the Java2D/Graphics2D infrastructure from Java which may have limitations
in this regard at least on some platforms (probably even depending on
the OS backend). Enlarging the canvas for painting and then downscaling
the resulting bitmap might actually not be the worst idea in this case.
But maybe I'm missing something.
