          Enable the "Continuously Rasterize" layer switch (the sun symbol).

              The blurriness could depend on a pixel-based effect you have applied in AI such as a drop shadow. The rest is unclear. Layers don't simply disappear. You may simply use some odd combination of effects and settings or the layers end up in positions way outside the actual comp window.

                Show us the appearance panel from one of your illustrator layers. Select one of the layers in AE and press the u key twice (uu) to reveal all properties of the layer that have been modified and any effects applied, check file interpretation by right clicking an Illustrator layer in the project panel and selecting Interpret Footage and select More Accurate from the other options panel. If the illustrator file is clean then your edges should be fine. If effects are applied in AI or layer styles are used then you must not scale the layers over about 120% or move the camera too close.




                One other hint, when grabbing screenshots from a mac you can use Cmnd + Shift + 4 to marquis select an area of your screen so the images are not so big. I also resize mine from my MBproR because they are twice the size they need to be for the web. It's also probably not the best idea to give the world the serial number of your mac.
