So a friend sent me a photo thats just a bunch of tiny red and green dots, so for fun I threw it in to aseprite which caused it to
a. render it correctly at some zoom level
b. not render the red dots at other zoom levels.
which meant it either was olive-green or bright green.
I can't easily record the video, so here is the picture to try it
Throw it into aseprite and zoom in and out.

Aseprite and System version

  • Aseprite version: Latest master.
  • System: Windows 10

I guess the problem appears when the zoom is 50% or less. This is because Aseprite doesn't use some kind of interpolation to render pixels on lower zoom levels. I'll see to add some kind of interpolation when the zoom is reduced.

I've been working in a new method to render the editor canvas using some antialiasing when zoom < 100% (and fix #1489 + should work with any level of zoom, i.e. smooth zoom). More news about this soon. Preview

I was wondering why when zooming out it was adding aliasing to my artwork. Now I know.

If you want hard pixels when zooming out I suggest having Experimental: New Render Engine turned off

How ever with it turned off when zoomed at 50% the brush doesn't render correctly
