[Tero Ahlfors] "The Quicktime Player might use the same scaling tricks it uses for the OS and some other apps to render them out in a bigger size so you don't need a magnifying glass to read the screen. You could get a full HD monitor and preview your comp with more accuracy with that while working in a larger zoom factor."

Thanks Tero!

I still have my old iMac, which I may be able to salvage for this purpose. Honestly, though, that would present a number of other issues — I'd quickly run out of desk space and wouldn't be able to sell the old iMac for parts, and this would also defeat the purpose of having a single, dedicated machine for all of my video/audio work. I'm starting to feel like I just wasted $2k.

Is it at all possible to change the scaling settings within AE to give me what I'm looking for?
