Bug report #12364

Output from print composer differs from map frame (shapeburst?)

Added by Nicholas Duggan over 9 years ago. Updated about 9 years ago.

Category:Map Composer/Printing
Affected QGIS version:2.8.1 Regression?:No
Operating System: Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:20539


When exporting maps in any format, PDF, jpeg, pnd or other, the image isn't rendering the same as in the map frame.
This is most noticable when using the shapeburst fill (see attached examples of correct render which was screengrab from mapframe and output from composer)

I have tried to adjust the settings, such as exporting as image and adjusting the "blur" on the shapeburst fill but the output is always degraded.
I have noticed that there are some small scaling issues when exporting (basemaps, WMS & WFS do not honour the scale of the composer), I am wondering if the two issues are related - that the shapeburst is being rendered based on the same scale issue.
Data being used is vector road data (supplied to Giovanni for a related shapeburst issue)
I am using QGIS 2.8.1 though have had scaling issues in 2.6 also.
