Pixelated even in Full Resolution

Hi!

I will indicate as much detail as I can.

I created a digital painting in Photoshop with high resolution (400 dpi). I then created a new comp (1920x1080) in AE and used the drawing as a texture for spherical map in Element 3d. The reason I want to do this is I want to orbit around my drawing (just like what you can do with Google Street View). I successfully laid the drawing in E3D and it all perfectly fits, I also animated a camera.

But then I noticed that the comp window is showing a pixelated video. The RAM preview is in FULL resolution, I tried switching from Quarter to Full but seems the Quarter Resolution makes the image clearer. But I know it's not. I checked the Preview panel and changed the resolution from Auto to Final...still no changes. I toggle between Adaptive Resolution and Off (Final Quality) but still the video preview is pixelated. I also checked the Preference > Preview but everything is in default value.

I tried adding the drawing as a normal layer and it is sharp. But the drawing as a map in E3D is pixelated.

What do you think the problem and the solution is? Below is the video of my problem in AE.

It appears that although you worked at 400 dpi, the image simply does not have the necessary horizontal and vertical dimensions.

DPI don't mean much from Photoshop to After Effects (and NLEs).
Its all based on Pixels.
What is the pixel count on that Photoshop file?
For HD and if plan on scaling up, it should at least be 2K square IMHO.

Thanks Eric for replying. The size of the drawing I did in Photoshop is 6858 × 2880. I know it's ridiculously large but I need to have that size since I have a lot of area to orbit and pan in AE.

Try using CC Environment instead.
