I have some issues with Adobe AE, in rendered video (on monitor inside AE it's ok). In the composition I have one shape overlapping the other one. However, the edge of the shape on top is pixelated.

Some ideas how to fix it?

I use 1920x1080 resolution/8bits color depth.

  • Can you post a single frame from within AE and one from the rendered video?

  • I dont know how to correctly save one frame from video file or ae. (Using snipping tool the quality is too bad for recognizing the pixelation) But i tried to export few frames into jpeg sequence and there it seems ok - no pixelation at all

  • Use Lossless preset or Quicktime - Animation and see if it still happens.

    I'm thinking it's chroma subsampling too. It's a very minor defect, and it will probably be swamped by compression artefacts when you do a web version anyway. If people are noticing it, you're not doing your job as a storyteller ;)
