AE CS 5.5 Mac OS 10.7, Imported screen captured .mov file is low quality

May 4, 2012 1:13 PM

    Hello

 

  I'm importing a few screen grabs that I made using Snapz Pro video. The quality of the original file is great. But when I import it into AE CS 5.5, and then zoom in and animate it, it looks really, really bad ONLY when I render at 1/2 resolution.

 

  If I did the same thing to images, they would look fine. But this movie asset (h264) looks horrible unless it's rendered at exactly 100%.

 

  To be clear, this only happens at render, and in the preview pane when the pane or render are set to less than 100%. If I view or render at 100%, it looks fine.

    Start by turning off OpenGL rendering, and report back.

    I see that when you set the screen size to 50%, you also set the resolution to Half.  What's it look like at Full?

     

    And even on the 100% shot, the detail in the video really isn't much to write home about.  Perhaps when you used the term "zoom" in your original post, you actually meant, "scale beyond 100%", and that's not good for any image.

    You still haven't explained what you mean when you use the term, "zoom in".  Please descrive the amount of scaling you're doing, or shake loose a few more details about the project.
