          You will have to explain better and provide screenshots and detailed info about your settings.

            Hi,

             

            Here I attach a screen of what i get in the time of working.

            That phone image and texts are pixelated. How it slove?

             

            The composition settings for this projects is

             

            Preset : Web Video, 320x240

            Pixel Aspect Ratio : Square Pixels

            Resolution : Full.

              Screenshot does not show composition settings or give us any information about your graphics or timeline. It is extremely pixelated so, just guessing here, but I think that you are viewing your composition at a magnification ratio of over 100%.

              This sample is just fine, it just looks pixelated because of the Magnification Ratio...

               

              As a general rule your composition size should be at least the size of you final delivered project. A 320 X 240 video is extremely small, about half the size of your screenshot. My standard for all project is full HD 1920 X 1080 at a minimum. About 1/3 of my projects are twice that big. You can always easily render a smaller version, but it is never a good idea to just render a larger one.

               

              Any graphics you add to a project should be at least the size you want them in the finished composition when viewed as a 2d layer at 100% scale. The graphic of the phone in your screenshot would need to be at least 1/4 the size of your composition.

                Thanks for the replay. It's fine.

                 

                So what we do in the time of making info graphics for web?

                  Or..

                  Is it better to use 1920 x 1080 for all projects?

                    YouTube and Vimeo both deliver full HD content for free. I would consider that the minimum standard for creating video for the web. The screen resolution for just about any new mobile device is at least 1920 pixels wide. Same thing here, video for a mobile device should be at least HD.

                     

                    I cannot think of a single reason to spend time on an video project that was only going to be 320 X 240 pixels unless I was building an animated gif and I have not been asked to create one of those in about 2 years.
