How are you doing the preview where it behaves how you want it?
Is it at full resolution, auto, half, or something else?
I have been editing it at half resolution. Does it need to be at full for me to see how it's going to render?
Full resolution is the only way to see what it's actually going to look like.
Side note: you should not be editing in After Effects. Editing is what you do in Premiere Pro. It is a lot faster and a lot easier there. After Effects is for complex visual effects shots, motion graphics, and complex stuff that can't be done in Premiere.

the video under "rendered" has a really odd frame where it either zooms in or out dramatically, which doesn't happen in the preview version.
There's a bug in AE CC 2017 where weird things happen if you fail to set the comp size to 100% and comp resolution to Full BEFORE you render.
So do that, re-render and see if it helps.
I'll see if that helps. Thank you so much!
Yeah, while creating an edit I usually switch between programs for different effects, Sony Vegas for splitting and adjusting audio, and AE for transitions. But I'll definitely look into Premiere Pro. Thanks for the help! I really appreciate it!
Sorry for this issue. Did you ever find a solution? Please let us know if you have or if you still need help.
Hey Kevin-Monahan, I've found a similar bug in the current build of After Effects CC2018 (Version 15.1.1, Build 12). The scaling glitch appears such that Ae Render Queue setup treats the scaled preview resolution as the composition maximum resolution (SD for a UHD comp), and treats a UHD output as an upscale of the SD preview size. It also appears to affect MOGRT files exported to use in Premiere Pro.
I've been troubleshooting this all day today and made little headway, but after finding this thread the proposed solution (to set the "Resolution/Down Sample Factor Popup" to "Full") allows the comp to render properly from the Ae Render Queue, as a Dynamic Linked comp in Premiere Pro, and as a MOGRT.

Thanks for the info. Sorry to hear about the trouble. Is it possible for you to file a bug so that the devs will be more aware of the issue? I will try to advocate for a fix ASAP. Sorry for the issue!
