Imprecise CC Photoshop - Illustrator transfer

By copying and pasting from Adobe Illustrator CC to Photoshop CC an incorrect transfer of pixels happens by inserting the object as a smart object. Especially doing that transfer with a one pixel line. The line is sharp in Illustrator pixel preview but not in Photoshop. When I open the same document in CS 5 and do the equal process it is not happening and the lines are sharp and crispy.

I think it is very important to guaranty an exact transfer all the more it was already working in CS 5.

It is an exact transfer of the vector shapes from Illustrator.
But then those vector shapes have to be rasterized.

Unless you save pixels from Illustrator, you aren't going to get the exact same pixels elsewhere - because you are working with vector data, not pixels.

Thank you Chris for your fast response.

Do you have any clue why this is not happening in CS 5? I saved the CC document as an C5 version and tried the same workflow and the pixels are precise as I wish.
Is this going to be updated in CC?

Thank you for your help!

CS6 has a snap to pixel behavior on by default that could trigger it by moving the outside of the box to the pixel grid.

CS6 also has higher quality antialiasing that could show edges that weren't previously visible.

No, that is not going to change. You are not describing a bug, just expecting something that is not reasonable.
