The BitmapScalingMode value associated with this DependencyObject.

BitmapScalingModeProperty

Metadata properties set to true

None

Use the BitmapScalingMode property on a UIElement or DrawingGroup descendant that is animating a bitmap.

When animating the scale of any bitmap, the default high-quality image re-sampling algorithm can sometimes consume sufficient system resources to cause frame rate degradation, effectively causing animations to stutter. By setting the BitmapScalingMode property to BitmapScalingMode.LowQuality, you can create a smoother animation when scaling a bitmap.

To access this property in code, use the GetBitmapScalingMode(DependencyObject) and SetBitmapScalingMode(DependencyObject, BitmapScalingMode) methods.
