To determine whether the ProRes codcec is doing something screwy, try Rendering a segment of the AE project as Uncompressed 10bit 4:2:2 and test in FCP.
If it turns out not to be the ProRes codec, you might want to check out the pixel aspect ratio setting, both in the footage (under interpret footage) and in the composition (and possibly again in the output module).
If the pixel aspect ratio goes amok somewhere along the line, it can result in a loss of quality as FCP tries to stretch the footage back out to its appropriate dimensions.
I almost always render at 60p out of After Effects, then I let Final Cut, or whatever NLE do all the busy work of handling field dominance. Never had a problem with fields going that way. I think it's the most flexible way to go -- especially if your material is going out to different formats.
60p? you mean 60fps progressive? Deinterlacing footage always results in a loss of quality, i cant see how that would help the situation, except maybe to soften the degree of blurriness.
In Case its an issue based on the codecs on your system, you might want use Gspot to check situation:
hope that helps a bit.
In the course of troubleshooting you then might want to
deactivate some codecs on the system, then :
2) With which fileformats are u exactly woriking ?
It might be of relevance to have QuickTime and Flash Player updated to the latest versions on the system ..
Rendering at 60p put the burden of field rendering on your NLE, not on After Effects.
