Vector graphics are rasterized upon import, no way to avoid that.
Try bringing in the graphic again, and replace the instances in the sequence with the new import.
Thanks for taking the time to reply Jim. I've tried it without any improvement. It imports the EPS the same terrible way. Is this some new bug in CC versus CS6? The same graphic looks/behaves wonderfully in CS6. The problem is that once I've saved the project as CC I cannot open it with CS6. Any other ideas?
I have not tested this work flow in CC yet. The last project I had EPS for was done in CS6.
You might try just exporting out of Illustrator as another format. I like PNG if possible.
That would be the work-around to the issue, nevertheless a fix. Thank you Jim.
Same "issue" here.
I loved the way how CS6 handeled the EPS files, because i was able to scale them how ever it need without having a loss of quality.
why is this feature gone? it was one of the functions why we choosed PremierePro!
is it a bug or is the EPS-vector support history?
Really? that never worked for me in CS6 mac.
Sure you could import and .eps or .ai but if you scaled it up bigger it would look aliased.
I wish adobe would implement the rasterizer from photoshop so that any illustrator .ai or .eps or .pdf
could be imported then asks you what size it should be and make it nice.
Same issue here.
We've just moved from CS6 to CC and all our existing and new projects are suffering from this problem.
We can work around it by exporting to a bitmap format like PNG but it's a massive step backwards for our workflow.
Hopefully it's bug instead of removing functionality...
has this issue been fixed?
Also here waiting on an answer

It seems that Premiere and After Effects treat vectors differently. One solution would be to use the "Replace with After Effects Composition" option. In After Effects there is small button that looks like a sun. Ticking this button for your EPS layer turns on continuous rasterization and you can scale for you hearts content.
Had the same issue using CC. My fix (which I don't love) was open the .ai file in photoshop and make it HUGE. Bring it back into Premiere and it looks sharp. Seems so strange that Premiere can't resolve the vector files to create high res graphics from .ai files though.
I had the same issue and I came up with a solution. Take the EPS illustrator file and open up in Photoshop and just to be safe enlarge the size of the file to be larger than the resolution of the Premiere file you are working on. Save it as a PNG file and import into Premiere that way. It looks really sharp now for me. Hope it works for everyone else here.
A work around that works but is somewhat annoying is to resize your vector to a size larger than you need in illustrator before you bring it in, then scale it down accordingly once in premiere.
I remember this working too. Please fix Adobe. This is a huge regression
This defect still hasn't been fixed. Approaching the end of 2017 here.
Clients regularly provide me with logos as EPS, which is exactly what they should be using.
Premiere doesn't handle vector images in Adobe's own format? There was no excuse for this in the first place.
File a bug report on this, people: Feature Request/Bug Report Form
It's now 2018...
Still no support for Adobe illustrator files in Adobe Premiere...?
This is ridiculous, please keep reporting people.
