    WMV in After Effects CS4 troubles

    Impulse Fire Level 1

      Hello, so i have been trying to find the most effective codec to render with in AAE. (i know WMV isnt the best quality but i need lower space usage) so far Quicktime with Mpeg-4 encoding seems to do the trick.

      This morning i tried some WMV encoding at the highest possible settings and it was a lot less space and i was thinking "ohh boy! this must be good!"

      however it looked pixelated beyond belief and just overall a disaster. I tried multiple settings and couldnt get it to work whatsoever.

      WMV in other program such as Vegas look fine. Is WMV naturally bad or am I missing something?

      My system (in case you need to know)

      Q9650 @ 3.0 Ghz

      8 GB RAM

      1 TB 32 mb cache 7200 rpm WD

      ATI Radeon 5850 1 GB

      thanks

          What settings exactly did you use? I'm doing this al lthe time to create PowerPoint porn and never had any problems. We use CBR mode at maximum image quality, data rates of about 2048 kBps for PAL resolution...
