Thread: After Effects: Bad Quality

    Default After Effects: Bad Quality

    Look at this image (particularly at the building on the left edge):

    Why does the video quality drop when I put it into a composition? I exported the video from LightWave as D1 PAL and set the composition as D1 PAL. Is there something fundamental I am missing? I've had this problem ever since I started using Premiere/After Effects.

    I would not worry what it looked like from the timeline. Only worry iof the final render/export looks bad. Does it?

    Yes, it looks the same when I render it.

    EDIT: Been messing around and I've got good quality but it has come down to creating a bmp sequence of the video and then importing the bmp sequence. I have an inkling it's something to do with LightWave using a weird pixel aspect ratio. I don't know much about video editing though
