I want to convert my PDF Tomb Raider comic (included in the survivors edition) to CBZ.
The resulting quality is horrible. The PDF has 900MB and is really high quality. The CBZ (set to keep original settings) results in a low res 20MB file.

Even when I do not convert it, it is transformed when syncing to my Nexus 10 :(

Do I have to exclude PDFs from CR and just read them with Acrobat for Android?

Presumably you are using Export Books? What settings are you using.

I which case I can only imagine the PDFs have an internal structure that includes low quality images and a high quality render of some kind.

PDFs dont always consist of just images so the only way to convert them would be a specialist program.

There is no magic in this PDF. I can save fantastic 1200 DPI pictures with Foxit Phantom PDF (I just installed as a trial). The pictures in the PDF are in vector format, so the export process controls the quality. Sadly CR does nit seem to master this process.

Most softwares can't handle nicely the layered pdf files, convert it first with photoshop to jpg files and create a cbr.
