    Why is After Effects Composition Preview Quality Different Than Export?

      Hello,

       

      First time seeking out assistance here.

       

      I've always been baffled that the adjustments that I make to my videos in AE renders in a very different quality.

      So far, I've rendered this via Adobe Media Encoder in H.264 (max bitrate), DNXHD, H.264 Blu Ray, Cineform, with each render being very different to the preview.

       

      Is the AE preview an accurate representation of the adjustments made to my footage and secondly, what can I do to export the same quality as being previewed?

       

       

       

      Picture of my current project:

       

      Source footage is BMCC > Prores LT

      Export footage is H.264 (300 bitrate)
