|0009440||Scribus||Import / Export||public||2010-10-26 12:35||2018-04-30 12:48|
|Priority||normal||Severity||major||Reproducibility||have not tried|
|Platform||x86||OS||Windoze||OS Version||XP SP1|
|Summary||0009440: blurred bitmaps are not exported to PDF correctly|
|Description||blurred bitmaps (via filter) are not exported to PDF correctly, they appear unblurred in whatever I view them.|
|Steps To Reproduce||import bitmap (tested image was PNG with transparency|
optionally: apply filter: change brightness to black
apply filter: blur
optionally: set opacity to 40%
export to PDF and watch how the graphic appears
|Additional Information||Suggested solutions:|
Make possible to rasterize things. Checkbox that does it for bitmaps with filters in pdf export gui will be also good thing to have to avoid occurrence of this bug.
||Can't reproduce here neither with 1.3.9svn nor with 1.5.0svn.|
1) What PDF version did you choose for export?
2) What PDF viewer?
I exported it to PDF 1.5.
I tried to view it with Adobe Reader 8.1.3, and also Foxit and SumatraPDF, but both failed to render the transparencies in various ways, not only blur failed.
Since this is pretty much an open project, and pretty much work in progress (wtactics.org), I've zipped and uploaded my files there (in case you'd need it): http://www.mediafire.com/?o2nd812raz54hxs
What you will find inside are needed working files (Scribus file plus bitmaps linked), plus .png and .pdf exported by Scribus.
||the file backgroundovermap.png is missing in the archive|
Sorry for that :(
Attached it here.
||I'm still trying to figure out what you're trying to tell us. Could you upload a screenshot that shows how the result is supposed to look?|
Bbe sure to look at the shadow under the person there - it is supposed to be blured on both images.
Take a look at this (bitmap exported to Scribus):
vs. this (PDF created with above settings, printed to bitmap with PDFCreator, printed out of Acrobat - it looks similar when viewed in):
Dunno how to point the issue clearer.
blur report.zip (26,121 bytes)
After suggestion from a_l_e I uploaded clearer example.
It contains of
Tiff export from Scribus.tif
Which should illustrate you the problem as clear as its possible.
Scribus file has only one bitmap, which has blur filter applied. While I expect the output closer to what is exported with image export (and what is to be seen in the program itself), I'm getting something different when printing (softproof shows that).
||Uploaded my results in a screenshot (OSX 10.10.5 1.5.2svn r21073)|
