Couple of things:
-What is your comp viewer resolution set to?
-What are the dimensions of your source images (PAR Correction enabled)?
-What is the layer quality set to when viewed in the timeline?
Screenshots direct to video, especially interlaced video, will always look bad. Here are several reasons.
- Screenshots always contain horizontal lines and type that is too narrow. The absolute minimum width for a line in interlaced video is 2 pixels. If it's not 2 pixels wide it will flicker like crazy.
- Computer displays are much higher resolution than standard video so you must scale down the screenshot to fit. This just aggravates the problem of fonts and lines that are too thin.
- For many codecs the color space is too wide. You'll end up with whites and blacks that are out of range.
- Screen Gamma is different than video gamma (this is probably the easiest to fix)
If you're going to the web then you'll still end up with the same small detail problems as you scale down the video to fit in a smaller window. Some of the screen capture programs do a very good job of scaling down screen captures and turning them into usable images, but no matter what you do, there will always be a problem when you try and scale down something that's only a single pixel wide to begin with.
