I appreciate it if you can shed some light on this...
Why is it that if I render directly from my 1080p time line to a 640x360 preset in AME, the result looks like absolute crap, mostly because the still images and scaled video look terrible.
But, if I render to a 1080p format first, and then use that as the source for AME to render to a 640x360 preset, it looks great.
It'd be great to be able to skip the first render, but I cant get good results going direct to the 640x360 format (which I'm using for client proofs)
Any help is appreciated..

If you could provide some details about your encoding settings, I'll bet you'll have some luck.
A screenshot of your encoder settings could also be helpful.
