    AE / Prem Rendering Vector Files Blurry & Pixelated

    adefenderfer

      I've never had this issue in 5 years and I'm perplexed.

       

      So I edited a simple animation in After Effects using an EPS vector file. In After Effects, it looks perfect. "Continuously Rasterize" is on. I exported it to "Lossless with Alpha" which still looks 100% smooth, exactly like AE. Then I put it at the end of my video in Premiere and export to H.264 > YouTube 1080 preset and just the logo portion of the animation becomes blurry. Not the text. Here are two samples. The top one is a screenshot from Premiere looking super crisp. The second screenshot is after exporting to H.264 > YouTube 1080 preset. As you can see in the 2nd image, the Sonic logo is blurred slightly while the text and Instagram logo remain super crisp.

      Things I've tried:

      • Verified the EPS was a vector and changed it to an Ai file to animate in AE... Same result.
      • Exported the EPS vector as a large PNG to animate in AE... Same result.
      • Export a lossless version and use Adobe Media Encoder to render... Same result
      • Updated Adobe to the most recent everything... Same Result.
      • Sent AE file to a friend on another computer to render... Same result.
      • Removed all effects from the Vector layer in AE... Same result.

       

      I know the difference isn't that noticeable but it's driving me bonkers.
