output image quality
 
hi there, star-cd users,

i'm using star 3.22 in win xp environment, and looking to output some vector sectional plots at high resolution,

in pro-star i can go to utility save screen as and choose:

gif ps eps format files, but the quality is not very good,

when i zoom up in my image the vector arrows are blurred and not clearly defined, is there a way i can create a higher resolution image.

thanks for any help offered

regards

ted

Use the Postscript (eps) output. It's vector based and should be able to zoom in pretty far.

But you'll need a Postscript viewer to view and print them - Google for Ghostscript for a free one.

However, a better way is to create your plots using the TERM,,FILE method. This creates a neutral plot file, and you can create .gif files from that at any resolution you want.
