    It would most likely have something to do with the OpenGL Display mode. As a standard WVM uses a "failsafe" setting which result in high pixelation. If you recently changed/updated your VMW, chances are that would be the reason. As for what setting you need, bruteforce is really your only option. Test your way through it and see if the program produces errors. I highly doubt that it would, but also be careful about the settings since the render can become too smooth. By too smooth, you will have a hard time cutting the render out by using Select Color Range or using magic wand. This will result in you getting a tiny (though still very visual) blue border (or whatever background colour you are using) around the render since Photoshop can't work with such "smooth" pixels.

    When changing the OpenGL Display Mode, what you need to keep an eye out for is the FSAA value.

    FSAA: 16 tends to produce the so called "smooth effect". While the renders become dazzling and ever so beautiful sparkly, you will still have to either feather your selection (producing a very ugly cut out) or somehow delete the blue border which takes time.

    FSAA: 8 tends to be what I use. Good quality render and Photoshop can still work with the pixels of it.

    I personally use Colour:32 Depth:24 Alpha:8 FSAA:8 DoubleBuffer Hardware mode.

    I can't really tell you what would be the best setting for your rig (cards and drivers), so you'll have to just test on until you either grow bored and annoyed, or find a good setting. To limit your test feel, try the FSAA: 8 and stay in that range. But for good measure try the FSAA: 16 and see if your Photoshop can work with it. If it can, you'll get top quality renders, which may result in happiness.
    (Actual result of happiness may vary)

    Hope my babble helps.

    Update:

    As I was posting this I got a new inbox message. When I checked it - it was this person again telling me what I had asked about in their request. They are still expecting me to do (another) one for them it seems. Either that, or they just haven't seen yours yet, Xrated.

    *sigh*

    As you can guess, I'm not doing it.
    I sent it to them first to make sure they were satisfied with it and they were.
    Only reason i threw it up on the forums

    Just made a new sig (again) for myself. What you guys think? I'm currently having problems with the SS from WMW. I think its way to pixilated. Anyone got a small guide/tip to how i get a more clean log on it?

    7. Signature requesting cooldown: One week. - (For skipped posts and re-requests).
    - Sometimes, peoples' requests get skipped due to an influx of requests (or if they don't pick a signature maker's interest). Since we need to regulate the income of requests, there is a one week cooldown for reposts. No bumps are allowed (and although they're two different words for what is the same action, I'm emphasising on it to differentiate between those that read the first post and those that didn't, and this makes indentifying the offenders much easier).

    Or just PM an artist with open requests :]

    What I do is instead of saving a screenshot is I just hit the print screen button.
    Then go on PS and paste it in and move it to where I want, select the sig in PS and copy and paste it again.

    Works like a charm

    So I got this in my inbox today Geek... QQ

    Your signature exceeds the maximum allowed size of 500px wide by 100px high by 50kb. Please see the guidelines for more information.
    Really though I don't frequent the forum scene on MMO that often, it was more for my guild forums. Though I would have liked to show it off here for all the effort you put into it.

    If your board and want to make a resized one I will proudly display it here, if not no worries, its getting plenty of show where I intended it.

    Just wanted you to know I didn't ditch it. Thanks again!

    Totally my fault. I had to go back and add your guild name, because I forgot it on the first signature I made you. When I re-saved it, I forgot to adjust the file size. That's really embarrassing on my part, and I'm sorry. First time I've made that error. Glad to know someone is being picky and checking every little thing. It was one or two KB's off. Good lord. I'll make sure and shoot a message to the mods, I'd rather I get infracted for making that mistake than you.

    Fixed:

    Hi! I'm looking for a nice signature and hopefully someone here can make an awesome one for me. I'd greatly appreciate it!

    Signature:

    Visible text: Bep of Shandris
    Note on text: I would like "Bep" to be written in a significantly larger font than "of Shandris", and both should be easily read. The font is up to you.

    Armory link/Facial screenshot: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/characte...ris/Bep/simple

    Gear set: Full Tier 11 Heroic Paladin gear.

    Helm visible: Yes.

    Pose: A side view. In my left hand, a shield. I want it to be of me with my shield out and blocking something (don't put in what I'm blocking, just the action of me blocking) and my sword in my right hand angled away so that the rest of my body is visible

    General colour scheme: Bathed in bright yellow light, but not too bright.

    Add anything you want or change anything you want if you think it will look better.

    If someone could do this, I would be really grateful.

    PM Wallpaper Request: Sorry it took longer than expected. Hubby got sick and then I had 3 kids to take care of rather than my usual 2. ;P Plus, it did take quite a while looking them all up in WMV. Anywho, I do hope you like.

    Check point 7 of the thread specific rules part of the first post. I don't get why I need to remind you guys to read it...

    It was actually just over 98kb.

    That just doesn't make any sense.

    Wait a second. Here is the signature I gave him - I haven't touched this - and the filesize shows 49.15KB. (Submitted 1d 22h ago)

    http://vixanya.deviantart.com/#/d4e75ig

    Here's the new one I gave him:

    http://vixanya.deviantart.com/#/d4eew1f (Submitted 5h 52m ago)

    It shows as 49.17KB

    Is my browser screwed up? I don't see that it was so huge.

    I saved the image to my desktop he was using, and that one (when I opened it in PS) was a bit over limit. But the thing is, that image linked directly to my Deviant Art page listed first up there. I don't get it.
