Photoshop Mobile: Layer Rotation Artifacts / Horrible Interpolation

When rotating a layer on the iPad there is apparently no attempt to provide high quality interpolation during the transformation, even during a “high quality export” of the project. As a result, rotated layers look like trash. Please help!

We will down res to screen during movement if we need to, but that is only screen display, and would not be baked into the file. Can we get a screen recording and a resulting file where the transformed layers are pixelated? Also, which iPad are you using and what are the dimensions of the file?

@Cristian was that only at a specific zoom level? Can you provide more info on how you got into that state. A screen recording could be helpful.

Hi Mike,
It is in a 450% zoom. At first sight I thoght it was just an visualisation issue, but later I discover it affects to the drawing linesm, to zoom it or printed. So I do not remember it happens before ;). Do you have any idea why?
Thanks a lots for you to answer me

You are saying that it remains after changing zoom level? I am having difficulty reproducing this issue. Can you explain further how you got to this state? A screen recording may aid in reproducing this on this side.

Hi Cristian, you have "Nearest Neighbor" set for interpolation of the Transform tool. Set it to "Bicubic."
