When editing using proxies, File → Export Frame exports a low-quality frame from the proxy sources.
As with other outputs, I would expect the exported frame from to be a full quality render.
I think that’s a very straightforward minor bug (with an easy workaround involving F4!), but if I can provide further info to help diganoise it, please ask.
We added a warning message in 21.08:
When a frame is exported with Proxy is on it will not source it from the original source files but the proxy files. It’d be good to add a warning dialog when File > Export Frame… is attempted when working with Proxy files to let users know that with a dialog box that says something like:
When Proxy is ON, the exported frame will be taken from the lower resolution Proxy instead of the original source.
Do you want to proceed anyway?
And of course, a choice of “Do not show this anymore” on the b…

This does seem like a stopgap rather than a real solution, which surely should be that the export is at full quality even when in proxy mode? I appreciate that this might be rather low priority though!
Correct. High effort and low priority. So we have the stop-gap to help people out in the meantime.
In case there is time, I should like this repair too.
