The image shows the original pixelled smart layer in the bottom left corner. The result of scaling (works fine) and rotating it with nearest neighbour is shown in the middle. The expected result is linked here:

This was obtained by scaling the smart object and turning that into another smart object, but that's kind of a roundabout solution. As I work with pixel art often, if this could be fixed that'd make my work a little bit easier :)

Nearest Neighbor is really not good for rotations.

When working with pixel art, it's the only option. I suppose the double smart layer works alright for my purposes, though.
