Export bitmap images @2x @3x @4x

Would like the ability to export bitmap images @2x, @3x, @4x.

We for example use Imgix (https://www.imgix.com/) to process and serve images in different sizes and formats. But in order to get the best results we need to be able to export bitmap images in a high resolution.

Currently we still need a round-trip to Sketch and the designer to facilitate this.

Anyone else in need for this feature?

    Our design team designed and exported Sketch files at @1x base scale to Avocode. We use many vector shapes and hires bitmap images. Both don't scale at all / in good quality in Avocode. Defeats the purpose of championing Avocode in the business.

    I have a logo consisting of a triangle vector shape and a text, but the grouped layers doesn't export well to 2x, 3x, 4x. This is frustrating!

    Yes. We need improved PNG export in Avocode and uploading bitmap assets would even be better if they could be upscaled (using Sketch vector info in background I assume.)

    We cannot use SVG as it is not adequately supported in React Native for instance and has problems ...needs heavy de-linting, alll sorts of unwanted design app transforms get carried through etc. e.g. design looks great in Sketch, some piece of icon is upside down when exported from Avocode because the 180° transform used in Sketch to build said icon is buried in the code. Outputting SVG directly from Sketch yeilds better results.

    We design in vector in Sketch @ 1x MDPI, upload to Avocode, design settings are MDPI. But icon exports to PNG are not satisfactory at all. They look really crusty. PNG export for say 4x (1440x2560) screens is not ready for primetime. ....major part of justification for Avocode is not there presently as design team has to side-export assets directly from Sketch to Github etc.

    Furthermore to the original point of this thread we would like to build some layouts in Sketch using bitmaps if clean or upscaled export were possible. Simplifies number of layers in Avocode for engineering and the export would be foolproof as they wouldn’t drill inside the icon for instance.

    it would be goof to eport png, jpg images in @2x @3x @4x size if the sourse image has high enough resolution
