Working on a project where i used an image matt key in Premier Pro and don't like my results. Looks fine but I want something a bit more clean and seemless. I am going to output to AE from Premier Pro so I can rotoscope the backgrounds out and want to use the best format I can so I can keep the HD quality. Can anyone give me any recomendations.
Was thinking uncompressed avi but its got a heavy hand and I want to cut down the rendering time.

When you create a movie for an intermediate stage in a post-production workflow, it is usually losslessly compressed (or even uncompressed).
Examples of losslessly compressed options include Animation codec and PNG codec in a QuickTime container.
Don't use lossy compression (like to MPEG-2 and H.264) for intermediate files. Use lossy compression only at the end of the production process, for final delivery.
See this for more information: "FAQ: What are the best export settings?"

If you're doing high-quality post-production work, sometimes you just have to deal with render times and large files.
Thanks Todd! I understand. Perfect timing ready to send the sequneces to the encoder que.....I've done enough HD to no better at this point was just checking always looking to save time.
Off I go....
