Umm, fields --> footage interpretation!!!!!!
ah, file --> interpret footage
i changed the "Remove Pulldown" to WSSWW and it looks great.
It's unlikely this is a pulldown issue. As Mylenium said, you are seeing a field issue.
AE automatically sets field interpretation ON for standard video resolutions. Your footage has been interpreted with fields, which means that during preview you are only seeing one field - half the picture, in essence.
You can turn off field interpretation and see both fields constantly in the composition window. If your footage is not interlaced, leave it that way. If it is, you should turn field interpolation back on before rendering (in most circumastances).
Note that if your footage has field interpretation ON and you render non-interlaced (progressive) output, the source footage will be deinterlaced in the final render.
thanks for the response andrew. i may ask about this again later, as the fields/interlacing thing always threw me for a loop, but i see, you're right, when i turn fields to "off" it looks great. i had changed the pulldown to wwwsw and that made it look fine as well, and when i rendered it out that way, it looked fine. but i'll try it with fields off and see how it looks that way.
