    Full HD Movie is pixelated after compositing???

      Hi, Im new to the forums but have been using After Effects for a while now...

       

      I just got a HD Camcorder and shot a movie with some friends. I composited in AE CS5 and then rendered/exported it as a H.264 file. I viewed the movie in Windows Media Player, Quicktime, iTunes, and VLC, and the quality is below Full HD, it is less than Standard Definition.

       

      CAMERA:

      1920x1080

      30fps

       

      AE SETTINGS:

      1920x1080

      30fps

      around 9mins of footage
      COMPUTER:
      Win 64-bit
      4GB RAM
      nvidia 1GB (Graphics)
      i5 (2.53Ghz)
      I then viewed movie in AE, RAM preview, it looks stunning!
      So I cant work out whether it is the format (H.264 or MP4), the rendering settings, the media players or it wont view in FullHD due to my hardware? Any help would be MUCH appreciated.
