For all my videos I add a png as a watermark to one corner. I usually render in 720p. The .png file itself is 1280x720, with nothing but the watermark in the bottom right, so that I don't have to adjust anything anymore.
Normally this all works fine and never gave any problems.
But today I tried to import the same file as usual and add it to the composition (as top layer). For some reason though the quality turned out horrible: http://puu.sh/98Phm/9df17afb49.png compared to the quality of the actual file: http://puu.sh/98Pjf/a16cf5a02f.png (sorry if it is a bit hard to see).
Anyways, any ideas what could have caused the quality to turn out like that?
Thank you already!
K, after rendering it looks fine. All good.
It looks like the composition zoom factor was not at 100% or that the quality was set to draft, or your view was not at an evenly dividable zoom factor, i.e. 25%, 50% but instead set to 33.7% or something odd. If you are new to AE you should take some time and learn how the controls in the composition panel effect the image.
