A screenshot of your comp would be more helpful. You've probably have pixel aspect ratio correction turned on which gives you a lower quality preview. There's just not enough info.
BTW, you can post an image directly by simply using the camera icon at the top of the reply window.
Yes I did have that turned on, but if I dont the preview looks very squished? Also, in the render the text doesnt look sharp either so....
Thanks I did not know that!
I'd suggest that you use the square pixel preset for your project. The preview will look much better, everything will look better. Any PAL video you have for your project will automatically fit in the frame and be automatically corrected. When you're ready for the final render you can use the AME (Adobe Media Encoder) to produce your non square output or nest your PAL Widescreen Square Pixel composition in a PAL DV widescreen comp and render that. No scaling will be necessary.
