Amanda: Reduce Interlace Flicker can have an intensity from 0 to 3. Usually, a value of 0.8 to 1.0 is more than enough to get rid of any flicker on a video screen. How strong a value are you setting it to?
I had it set to 1, and then i tried it at 1.5.
Still pretty blurry.
and my logo i put in is blurry too. When i look at it as the footage - it's fine.
but then in the composition - it is a little blurry.
i brought that in as an Illustrator vector file - very simple art.
I am not sure what to do. This doesnt happen when I use the title
feature in Premeier - but i wanted to have a little more control and am using
after effects - hoping that would better.

Reduce Interlace Flicker will increase, not remove, blurriness. That's what it does. If you are not going to a TV screen, you don't need it.
Does the text look blurry in After Effects or when you export it? Because apparently the problem is simply that the Adobe Media Player is showing the content larger to make it fit, and that would explain the blurriness.
Thank you - i will try it in my 640x480 player - however, i just thought that plain text and vector art would be more scalable - but maybe once it's in a movie it is not. Sorry, I am no pro at this.
Thanks for your help.
Text and imported vector graphics will be scalable if you export a SWF file (for the relatively small set of features in AE that are supported for SWF export without rasterizing). For FLV files, everything becomes a video stream, ie bitmap-based.
Still, if you display the FLV video file at up to 100 per cent its' size, it should not look blurred or pixellated.
