exportimage to jit.matrix not following Max DPI prefs
I’ve been trying to get a higher DPI image out of jit.matrix or jit.qt.movie, with no luck. I’ve changed the "Export Image Resolution (DPI)" setting in the Max prefs to 300 DPI, but all exported images are still 72 DPI. The preference setting does appear to apply to images created by choosing File->Export Image, which is a screen capture of the current patcher, but this is not what I need.
The docs indicate the following about the "Export Image Resolution" preference:
Setting image resolution preferences
Several Max objects (jit.qt.grab, jit.dx.grab, jit.qt.movie) allow you to save loaded image files or individual frames of a Jitter matrix. You can set a preference for the default resolution for any image files you save.
- does this apply to jit.matrix as well?
- is this feature currently working?
I’m running OSX 10.5.8, Max 5.1.5.
Test patcher attached.

Apologies, the ref is completely wrong. This only effects patcher image export.
Ok, thanks for that. So is it correct then to assume that images exported from jit.matrix via the "exportimage" message are fixed at 72 DPI?
Can anyone shed any light on this? Is there a way to set the DPI for images exported from jit.matrix?
Not that I know of. In the past I’ve just saved it huge and converted it elsewhere.
